Mushroom Turkey Burgers
A healthier twist to traditional hamburgers by using ground turkey instead of ground beef.
- 1/2 pound mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds before beginning the recipe.
- Clean mushrooms by using a damp paper towel or soft mushroom brush to wipe the mushroom and remove any dirt. You can lightly rinse mushrooms with cool water and pat dry with paper towels, but do not soak them. Mushrooms absorb water and won't brown well when cooked if full of water. Remove stems from mushrooms and finely chop using a vegetable cutting board.
- Spray a medium sauté pan with cooking spray. Preheat pan over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil. When hot add finely chopped mushrooms and cook 5 to 7 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes.
- Remove wrapper from the ground turkey. Place meat in a medium bowl.
- Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds after handling the meat.
- Add cooked mushrooms, soy sauce, onion powder, salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix with hands or with wooden spoon. Once thoroughly mixed form into 4 burger patties.
- Heat remaining oil in the pan and add patties.
- Wash hand with soap and warm water after placing patties into the pan.
- Cook 5 minutes on each side.
- Insert cooking thermometer into the side of each burger, with the tip extending into the center, and continue cooking to an internal temperature of 165°F.
