Turkey Burgers and Zucchini Roasted Fries

Posted on

Being on the Mediterranean style of eating, and craving a burger,(beef 1-2 times a month) I decided to make a turkey burger. I found these beautiful whole wheat kaiser rolls at the Safeway deli that topped it off beautifully. The Zucchini fries actually complemented the burger perfectly.

The following recipe is a basic recipe for burgers. I added fresh sage to give it more flavor. I find the basic makes enough I can split in half and add basil and oregano for meatballs later in the week, and hamburgers for another.

3 pounds ground turkey
1/4cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely diced onion
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1-2 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a skillet sweat together the onion, garlic and parsley. Let cool and add to ground turkey, seasoned bread crumbs, egg whites, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Form into patties.
Cook the patties in a medium skillet over medium heat, barbecue, or rotisserie turning once, to an internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C).

Zucchini Fries
Slice zucchini into fries. Drizzle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, fresh garlic minced, salt and pepper. Roast in a 400 degree oven for 15 min, or until starting to turn golden brown. Add a light dusting of Parmesan cheese; toss and put back in the oven for an additional 5 min. or till done.

An average cook, an enthusiasm for experimenting and trying new things, is the reason for this blog. That and I found myself in the “empty nest” syndrome and needed an outlet. So I picked up the camera that was collecting dust, got out the pile of recipes, contacted friends and family for their favorites and starting cooking again. What could be better than a glass of wine, a hot stove, and creativity? Come along for the ride. I will be blogging about food, family, and anything else that inspires me.
