Fantastic Food Friday: Open Faced Turkey Burgers

Broiled Open Faced Burgers with Onions and Mushrooms


For the burgers --
1 pound ground turkey
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

For the onions and mushrooms --
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Mix turkey, onion, water, and seasonings. Shape into four patties (about 3/4 inch thick). Preheat oven to broil. On rack in broiler pan, broil patties about 3 inches from heat until done (about 5 minutes each side).

In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, stirring occasionally until tender. Stir in mushrooms and Worcestershire sauce, heat until mushrooms are hot and cooked through. Top burgers with this mixture.

This recipe originally came from Saving Dinner. I also found that there is a cookbook: Saving Dinner: The Menus, Recipes, and Shopping Lists to Bring Your Family Back to the Table.

I served this with a Caesar salad and my version of Red Robin's Garlic Fries. I cheated and used frozen fries that I drizzled with garlic infused olive oil and Parmesan cheese.

Man, that looks good.

What time do you want me to come over for dinner?

That was Monday's dinner but we do it fairly often. I'll let you know when I'm planning it again. Heck, I still owe you a BBQ *wink* When are you coming to Vegas?

Darn. I'm going to have to wait until the chickens become self sufficient.
