Turkey Burgers

 Turkey Burgers

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes (Burgers)
           45 minutes (Meat Loaf)
Makes: 4 Burgers or 1 Loaf


1 1/2 lbs. ground organic free-range turkey
1/4 cup minced onion
3/4 cup coarsely ground oatmeal (put in a blender and pulse until the oatmeal is the consistency of bread crumbs)
1 egg
1/4 cup minced celery
1/4 cup milk, soy milk, or stock
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Mix all ingredients well.  Form into 1-inch-thick patties and place in a lightly oiled skillet.  Cook the burgers over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until browned and crispy.  Flip the burgers carefully and cook for 5 minutes longer, or until golden brown and a thermometer inserted in the center registers 165 degrees and the meat is no longer pink.  Serve the burgers hot.

If you’re making  a loaf, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Form the mixture into a loaf and pack into a lightly oiled 8 x 4-inch baking pan.  Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until the loaf begins to pull away from the pan.

These are healthy alternative to a regular beef burger and they taste great!
