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)
1/4 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!
