I have a confession . . . I love turkey burgers. I would choose a turkey burger over a beef burger any day of the week. Seriously. Well . . . unless it was an A&W Prime Rib Burger that is. Those are flippin' gorgeous. I've only had one of those in my life time and I've been thinking about it ever since! (Must have been loaded with fat, that's all I can say!)
I used to make a Spicy Turkey Burger for my boss when I worked at the Manor all the time. They were really good. I have also made Thai Turkey Burgers which were fabulous . . . Buffalo Turkey Burgers which were stupendous . . . and Turkey Burgers with Cranberry Catsup, fabulous Catsup . . . that last one was someone else's recipe and the burgers themselves were just so so . . . but the catsup that I came up with was just wonderful.
I had some ground turkey in the house yesterday and I was craving a turkey burger and so I decided to come up with something a tad bit different than the ones I used to make at the Manor. I wanted them really kicked up a notch and this is what I came up with.
Fabulously moist turkey burgers, low in fat and flavoured with garlic, onion, shallots, and chipotle chili paste . . . with a nice slice of spicy mexican flavoured cheddar melted on top . . . tucked into a toasted cheese roll, on a bed of garlic mayo . . . with shredded lettuce, red onions and sliced tomatoes.
TO ---- DIE ---- FOR!
'Nuff said. Make them. NOW! I'm not kidding. No way. No how.
