Turkey Burgers

These are our favorite burgers to eat in the Spring & Summer. I am sick of winter and since the forecast is for temps in the high 50's today, I will make these for dinner tonight as our Taste of Spring. I found this recipe browsing in a House & Garden Magazine a few years ago at the Hair Salon.


1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3 T Mayonnaise
2 T chopped, fresh chives
1 T Worcester Sauce
1 T Hot Sauce
2 green onions, sliced (white & green parts)
4 Basil Leaves, sliced thin
1 t salt & 1/2 t pepper

Mix all ingredients together and shape into 5 or 6 Burgers. Use indoor or outdoor grill.
Serve on Buns topped with spicy coleslaw (recipe follows), tomato slices, and sweet pickles.


2 C shredded cabbage
1 C loosely packed Arugula
10 Basil Leaves, sliced thin
1/2 C Mayo
1 T apple cider vinegar
2 t Dijon mustard
1/2 t sugar
1/2 t red pepper flakes
Salt & Pepper to taste.

Thank you! I'm printing both of these out. I love turkey burgers and that slaw sounds great (I love arugula and never thought of adding it to slaw).

We have a warmer but wet forecast for this weekend. Enjoy your spring preview!

Gee it's almost dinner time here on the west coast. I'm defrosting turkey now for a meal that you've just posted ...maybe tomorrow? Thank youl, sounds like a good sat. meal for us.


Barb and Annie, hope you both get to try these. They are really good.

Just wanted to let you know that I made these for lunch today - delicious! I love the slaw. I used Napa cabbage because that's what they had at the farmer's market yesterday, and it came out great. The arugula really adds a lot of flavor. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!


Annie, I'm glad that you liked the Burgers!

Mmmm... I love turkey burgers so I will have to try these at some point!
