Well-seasoned turkey burgers, grilled and served on a soft bun, topped with spicy guacamole and sprigs of fresh cilantro make a delicious, economical weeknight dinner.
The secret to great turkey burgers is to make sure that everything is very well seasoned as ground turkey tends to be a bit bland and dry. The small amount of cornmeal in the meat mixture helps to retain moisture during cooking and the grated cheese adds a tender, creamy texture.
Turkey burgers are a little more fragile than beef burgers, that’s why we choose to grill them on foil. It prevents them from breaking apart if they stick to the grates.
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Quarter some new potatoes and toss them with a bit of olive oil to coat. Season with salt, pepper and your favorite Southwest-style seasoning blend. Roast for about 15 to 18 minutes, until the potatoes turn light golden brown in color and a little bit crispy.
