My family loves these turkey burgers. They are easy to prepare and cook, freezable, and healthy. They are also quite versatile so instead of using bread crumbs or flour I used a mix of seeds and oats. Instead of eggs (my little one is allergic) I used flax eggs. Whatever you have on hand you can use.

Ingredients:

  • ~ 2 lbs organic, free-range turkey
  • 1 cup of seeds/oats/flour (I used sesame, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds)
  • 2 flax eggs (2 TBS ground flaxseed & 6 TBS warm water) or 2 eggs
  • fresh herbs (parsley, cilantro, mint), chopped
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • a few garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Make the flax eggs and leave in a small bowl to form (10 minutes or so). It will look sort of like jello
  2. flax eggIn the meantime, make your "flour" mixture. If using seeds and oats (I used Trader Joe's Gluten Free Rolled Oats), combine in a blender, food processor, ninja, whatever you've got.
  3. seed flourPut your turkey in a large bowl and add all of the rest of the ingredients (including flax eggs and "flour"). Mix well with your hands. Form patties (adjust ingredients as necessary in regards to needing water or more flour). Now you can bake these, fry them, and grill them! I made a double batch so we grilled half and froze the other half for later. I formed the patties and then put wax paper between each one. I then placed the whole stack in a ziplock and put it in the freezer. We ended up grilling them a few days later and they were great!
