Out of this world Turkey burger

Pairs well with:


Reach for our Chardonnay when you’re in the mood for a rich and creamy wine that delights with the fruity flair of pear, apple, and peach.


One package ground turkey (the 7 gr fat variety) Chopped onion (today I used 3 green onions which gave wonderful depth, especially since they are in season. Any onion works great, 1/4 to 1/3 onion, lots of flavor, doesn't steal the show)
Tablespoon marinade, mesquite flavor
1 1/2 teaspoon worchestershire sauce
One slice thick bacon or two thin
Two dashes seasoning salt
Three dashes seafood spices
Two dashes balsamic vinegar
One teaspoon Kikoman teriyaki marinade
One teaspoon paprika
Two cloves chopped garlic (or one teaspoon granules)
One teaspoon Horsheradish
honey dijon mustard (two tablespoons tangy salad dressing substitution is great)
Chili powder



Put turkey into a large mixing bowl. Add all of the other ingredients except chili powder(just pouring them on top, no mixing). To add the bacon, I snip it in 1/2 inch triangles with a scissors. Again, I am guessing on the measurements, more is not discouraged. Mix the meat with the other ingredients by hand, just until combined. Form four patties. Place them directly onto a sprayed grill pan. Make an indentation in the middle. Cook at 360 for 15-20 minutes. Turn. Sprinkle (just a bit) with Lawry's and chili powder (gives great color and coating of flavor). Finish off under medium broil until golden and medium well (not too long! 5-10 minutes so they are still juicy but well done).
