Turkey Pesto Burgers
A yummy alternative to your usual cookout fare! I first had turkey pesto burgers several years ago when my boss at my first real job made them for lunch one day. I was working at an interior design firm in Charlottesville which was actually in my boss’s house out in the country and once a week, she would make us these unbelievable lunches. I was seriously spoiled.
Back to the recipe – the pesto is a great way to keep the turkey burgers from drying out (I was never a huge fan of turkey burgers prior to realizing that some sort of binder is necessary to keep them moist) and over the years I’ve added a few other key ingredients.
Note: I’m not one for measurements so you generally won’t find them in my recipes. Very Rachael Ray.
A couple spoonfuls of pesto
Finely diced red onion
Mix all ingredients together and cook burger as you normally would. Serve on toasted bun with lettuce and tomato. I usually add a little more pesto and feta on top, but that depends on how indulgent you want to be.
