Baby Turkey Burgers

2 Dec

I’m actually super excited about this one! Because I came up with the whole recipe and had no idea if it would work or not. At one point I was scared it was going to be too crumbly and not stick at all while trying to make the tiny burgers because I processed the onions and celery sticks too much and let them get very juicy. Don’t worry, everything worked out at the end! 🙂 Here is the recipe:


1 ½ cups lean ground turkey (I used 99%)

1 cup celery sticks

2/3 cup onions

1/3 cup brown rice (this is actually the measurement for it when it’s dry/uncooked)

1 clove garlic

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoon tomato sauce

¾ cup bread crumbs

½ teaspoon of the following spices: salt, black pepper, cumin, smoked paprika

½ teaspoon of the following spices: oregano, mint flakes

Start off with cooking the brown rice with a little bit of water, it should cover the rice but that’s it. Bring water and the rice to a boil and then simmer till all the water is gone. It’s better to have the rice a little underdone because when you add them to the patties, it’ll be nice to chew on them.

Put the celery sticks, onions, garlic, olive oil, tomato sauce, and all the spices in a food processor and chop them really fine. Add the ground turkey and cooked brown rice and blend it again. Make sure you don’t let the rice dissolve in the dough. Pour it into a mixing bowl and add the bread crumbs. Once you mix it all well, cover it and put it in the fridge for 2-3 hours, that way the patties you will make will be firmer.

Take it out of the fridge and start making patties any size you want. I love making tiny patties because most of the time I eat them by themselves, without the whole burger extravaganza 🙂 You can make them actual burger size or slider size or even smaller. Spray your pan or drizzle some oil and pan fry your turkey burger patties, and try to enjoy them while they’re hot!
