Turkey Burgers

Prep Time:
25 MinCook Time:
16 MinReady In:
41 Min

Original Recipe Yield 6 patties
Ingredients
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1 cup water
2 (16 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 green bell pepper, halved and seeded
1 onion, quartered
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
6 cloves garlic, peeled
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 eggs
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs, or as needed

Directions:
Bring the brown rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.
Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil. Mash black beans in a large bowl with a fork until thick and pasty; set aside.

Place the bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor, and chop finely. Stir the bell pepper mixture into the mashed black beans. Place the brown rice and mozzarella cheese in the food processor, and process until combined. Stir the mixture into the black beans.

Whisk together the eggs, chili powder, cumin, garlic salt, and hot sauce. Stir the egg mixture into the black bean mixture. Stir in the bread crumbs, adding additional bread crumbs as needed until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide into 6 large patties.
Place patties onto the prepared foil, and grill until browned and heated through, about 8 minutes per side.

Footnotes
Cook's Note To bake the patties: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and lightly oil a baking sheet. Place patties on baking sheet, and bake about 10 minutes on each side.

Mine is:

Take a handful of extra lean ground turkey and mash some Italian seasonings into it along with some black pepper. Make a patty and cook in a pan coated with olive oil until done (flip once). Serve wrapped in lettuce leaves, topped with light mayo, spicy brown mustard, sliced avocado, sliced black olives, and a sprinkle of sea salt. Yummy!

Sorry I don't have a recipe to post but I do have a suggestion if you have any hamburger notebooks sub the ground beef for ground turkey or turkey breast. That will expand your food options.

Mix in hot sauce, paprika, garlic powder and a diced onion then form patties. Fry in pan in a little bit of A1. Make garlic buns using minced garlic mixed w/ whatever butter/margarine you use. Top with sliced onion and mayo or mustard.

I make turkey burgers for DH for 4th of July, every year he asks for the same. I don't cook with recipes, so I don't have measurements, sorry! It's got:

Ground turkey
Minced red onion
Minced bell pepper (any color)
Minced jalapeno
Minced cilantro
Minced garlic
Ground cumin
Chipotle powder
Black pepper
Ground coriander
Smoked paprika

So basically everything you would put in a taco seasoning. The family raves about them.

I used your seasoning this weekend, Bacilli, and the turkey burgers had a really great Southwestern taste.

I also cooked them somewhat differently. (I don't have access to an outside grill.) After forming them, I let them sit in the fridge on waxed paper for a half hour. I cooked them in a bit of olive oil in a frying pan on top of the stove, a few minutes on each side, just to brown them. Then I put them on a rack, on top of a shallow tray, and stuck them in the oven to finish them off. That took about 10-15 minutes longer, I forget. They held together well & they didn't look too pale. This is a change from my little Foreman grill & I'll probably do this again.
