I have had a craving for turkey burgers lately, and when I saw these on Joelen’s blog this week, I knew I had to make them for dinner soon!
They were very good. Honestly, I liked the chicken parm burgers I made back in July better. But, hubs loved these burgers and will have the leftovers while I’m at school tomorrow night.
Adapted from What’s Cookin’, Chicago?
1lb. Ground turkey
1t. Dried basil
1/4t. Poultry seasoning
1t. Dried oregano
1t. Italian seasoning
1t. Granulated garlic
1t. Onion powder
2T. Soy Parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
4 slices Soy mozzarella cheese, each slice cut into quarters
1/4C. Pasta sauce
6-8 Basil leaves, sliced thin
8 Dinner rolls, split & toasted
Toast buns under hot broiler and set aside to keep warm.
In a bowl combine the ground turkey, all the spices, cheese and salt & pepper. Form 8 large meatballs and flatten to create small patties. Cook in skillet with a little oil – about 5 minutes per side – until done.
Top all browned patties with a teaspoon of pasta sauce and a couple slices of cheese. Cover skillet to allow cheese to melt.
Spread a teaspoon of pasta sauce on the bottoms of the split dinner rolls. Transfer each patty onto the bottoms of the rolls and top the burgers with basil and the tops of the dinner rolls. Serve immediately.
