This recipe is the most requested recipe in our household. It is the result of many attempts to get the right combination of seasonings for turkey instead of hamburger meatballs that still have that Swedish meatball taste. We much prefer the taste to the original hamburger recipe.
The addition of shredded carrots is the secret ingredient to the most juicy moist turkey burgers so please don't omit them! these are delicious done on the grill I make these quite often and my family loves them and they are low fat too --- they may be broiled or pan-fried but they are much better if prepared on the grill or even an indoor grill would be great! This recipe makes approx 8 turkey burgers, depending on how large you make them, you might want to double or triple the amounts and freeze the patties --- Mrs. Dash seasoning may be replaced for the seasoned salt if you are on a low sodium diet --- plan ahead the patties must chill for 4-24 hours to blend flavors, the longer chilling time the better! --- for the best flavor use seasoned salt not white salt and if you are a garlic-lover then increase to 2 tablespoons, for my garlic-loving family I use about 6 garlic cloves, and my family loves lots of heat so I also add in 2 tablespoons of crushed chili flakes
Adapted over the years for my family's taste. Original recipe calls for 8 oz. tomato sauce instead of chili sauce over the top. If you don't like sauce on top of your meatloaf, then leave it off. This is an old recipe, written long before MSG (Accent) was determined to be evil. Use at your own risk.
I make these and double the recipe.
I wrap each burger and lay on a cookie sheet till frozen then bag, they keep in the freezer about 3 months. It's a great recipe for when ground chicken or turkey is on sale.
from WW's Simply the Best Cookbook. These are actually presented as an appetizer in the original cookbook, but we usually serve them as a main dish over hot cooked jasmine rice. Wonderful and easy! 2 WW points per serving (as appetizer) or 4 WW points per serving as main dish.
This is a southwestern stuffed burger that will knock your socks off. My hubby HATES ground turkey. When he took a bite of it, he yelled #*@$ that's good. Then, he went to the grocery store and got more ground turkey the next day.
The secret to this tender, flavor-packed BBQ meatloaf is the boxed cornbread stuffing mix! Beginning cooks will love the convenience, but so will any cook with a keen eye for a healthy, quick entree. TIP: We eat one meatloaf for dinner, and I freeze the second one for another meal.
I started making these when my husband was on strike from the steel mill and ground turkey was inexpensive. My kids loved them and still do. Got the recipe from Better Homes & Gardens All-Time Favorite Ground Meat Recipes.
