Favorite Turkey Burger

Springtime has to be my favorite season of them all. The blooming flowers, spring flowers and growing gardens, and the fantastic sunny weather. It's practically intoxicating...that I might have neglected my little food blog for a bit. Sorry friends, but it's been a busy week here at Casa Regueiro. We are knee deep in nesting mode in preparation for cupcake to arrive, and I have 3 weeks until Elena's first birthday party!!! So it's safe to say...I have been busy!

With the weather warming up, it's time to change gears and start cooking outside with the grill. Tacos, pizzas, burgers, steaks in my opinion always taste better when cooked on the grill.  Usually we like to make these burgers or visit In-N-Out for our burger fix, and whenever I have ground turkey to cook for dinner - I always make sloppy joes, so this was a great alternative meal.

This is our new favorite recipe for turkey burger. These burgers are very moist and delicious, and very easy to prepare. Top them with your favorite burger toppings like avocado, grilled onions, mushrooms, extra cheese, lettuce, or perhaps some grilled veggies. I served them along with a side of sweet potato fries and a bowl of strawberries for the perfect springtime meal.

Total time: 40 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere Cheese
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
Cooking Directions
  1. Heat large grill pan on medium-high heat or grill.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ground turkey, Gruyere cheese, green onions, breadcrumbs, mustard and garlic. Mix gently with a fork and combine. Season with salt and pepper. Carefully form mixture into four 1-inch thick patties or (six 3/4-inch patties).
  3. Lightly oil grill with cooking spray (Misto). Place patties on grill and sear until browned, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. If cooking on grill, place patties on hottest grill and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Cook until cooked through, about 5 to 10 minutes per side.
  4. Serve with desired toppings over a toasted sesame hamburger bun.
Review: Absolutely delicious. I opted to cook these on the grill pan versus the grill, but I know we'll make them again soon enough and prepare them on the grill. 

I'm a week late on sharing this, but here are some of my favorite pictures from Easter. Elena had her first egg hunt after church service. Papi helped her out find eggs and I waddled/followed along (since I'm 34 weeks already!). There were a bunch of little kids helping Elena out as well, they would come up and drop eggs in her basket. It was the sweetest thing ever, and it's hard to believe that this was her last first holiday before she turns the big one!! WOW!
