Turkey burgers with veggies

I came up with this one for dinner last night.  I think if the carrots were a little smaller, they would have fully cooked.  Still very tasty.  I find the low fat ground turkey to bland.

1lb Ground Turkey - 93% fat free
1 Piece of sliced white bread, crust removed
1/2 Green pepper coursely chopped
1/2 Large carrot cousely chopped or one medium
1/3 Red pepper coursely chopped
1 Clove garlic

1T Dijon mustard or to taste
3T Chopped parsley
1 Egg, slightly beaten

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350

In the bowl of the food processor, add the bread in chunks and whir until they resemble course bread crumbs, remove from bowl.

In the same bowl add all of the veggies and chop until small pieces, not pureed.  It will be about the same size as the bread crumbs.

Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix well.

Divide into four servings and shape into hamburgers.  In an oven safe grill pan cook 4 minutes on each side and then put into oven until it reaches about 160 degrees internal temp.

Served with a large garden salad.

Happy Eating!

  1. It wouldn't work for your recipe, but I've basically turned to ground pork as an alternative to ground turkey and ground beef.

    Healthy? Well, um .... But I think it tastes better, and is easier to cook with because because it binds more readily to savory herbs and my favorite spice, cumin.

    FWIW @ $3.49/lb. (Stop & Shop, P'town), pork is cheaper than other ground meats.

    from ground turkey and ground beef. So expensive!
