Turkey Meatloaf/Burgers

IMG_0205

Turkey burgers are one of my super quick go to meals for an easy weeknight dinner.  This recipe is an example of a couple of add in ingredients that you can use to make your own turkey meatloaf burgers.

Ingredients:

1 pound of ground turkey

1  4oz jar of pimentos with the liquid

6 oz of crumbled feta cheese

¾ Tbsp of Italian seasoning blend

Olive oil

Directions:

Mix the first 4 ingredients together in a medium bowl.  Drizzle the mixture with some olive oil for added moisture.  Form into 4 patties and place into a casserole dish.  Cover and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

Baking these covered in the oven gives them more of a meatloaf consistency; very soft and moist.  There will be some liquid in the bottom of the pan after they’re cooked.

You could absolutely put these onto a grill pan or a nonstick skillet and make them into burgers which will have a harder exterior.  I usually bake them as I can stick them into the oven and forget about them for 30 minutes as opposed to standing there with them as they cook.

Variation ingredients:

 For Mexican turkey meatloaf/burgers:

1 small can of green chilies with the liquid

Shredded Monterey jack or Mexican blend cheese

¾ Tbsp Mexican spice blend or all natural taco seasoning

 

For Mediterranean turkey meatloaf/burgers:

½ cup chopped red onion

feta cheese

8 oz or a generous handful of kalamata or green olives roughly chopped

¾ Tbsp of greek seasoning

2 Tbsp (more or less) of water for moisture
