I've made many, many burgers in my lifetime. Many burgers. Tonight we may have reached an entirely new level for burgers. With basil infused olive oil and a few other ingredients, these turkey burgers in no way resemble the dried out boring turkey burgers you may have had in the past. After the burgers are cooked through, top with a slice of provolone or mozzarella if you'd like.
1 T. Basil Olive Oil
1/4 onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup semi-dried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 lbs. ground turkey or chicken
6 whole-wheat or multi-grained buns
Saute onions and garlic in Basil Olive Oil until translucent, 4 - 6 minutes.
Add tomatoes and parsley, stirring until incorporated. Remove from heat. Chill thoroughly in the refrigerator.
Fold mixture into the ground turkey. Form 6 patties and refrigerate until ready to cook. Look at the tomatoes, onions, and parsley! I used the same skillet I sauteed the vegetables in earlier.
