I whipped these Parmesan Crusted Turkey Burgers based on how much I liked the breading found in another recipe on this site (Parmesan Crusted Tilapia: http://www.food.com/recipe/parmesan-crusted-tilapia-169764 ) My girlfriend and I enjoyed these so much, that I had to share them with the public!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Blend Parmesan Cheese, Bread Crumbs, Italian Seasoning, and Garlic Powder on a plate.
  3. Blend eggs and lemon juice together on a separate plate.
  4. Mold pieces of turkey into burger-like shapes.
  5. Dip each piece of turkey into the egg mixture.
  6. Flip the pieces of turkey, and dip other side into egg mixture.
  7. Put each piece of turkey on the bread crumb mixture.
  8. Flip the pieces of turkey, and put the other side onto the bread crumb mixture.
  9. Repeat steps 6-8 a second time, (it gets a little messy, but it will put a thicker coat on the burger.).
  10. Cover remaining bits of turkey with bread crumb mixture.
  11. Place covered pieces of turkey onto a baking rack, and place in oven.
  12. Cook for 35-45 minutes until outside is golden-brown.
  13. When your turkey is nearly cooked (within 5 minutes), Butter each bun, placing on a skillet set on medium-heat.
  14. Occasionally rotate the buns so that they are evenly cooked. Watch them closely, as they will burn fast if you're not careful. Continue to cook until the bottom-side of each bun is golden brown.
  15. Place slices of cheese on hot buns, put the turkey on the bun, add condiments of your choice (I personally recommend mayonnaise!), and enjoy!

Meh. I added 1 tsp salt and 1 tbsp chopped jarred jalapeños directly to the meat because I was afraid it wouldn't be flavorful enough. Even with those modifications, the burgers just lacked something. They're okay, but I won't make them again.

Making these (along with more than a few other finger foods) for a group I host each month, I doubled the recipe & then made enough patties for 16 small buns! Worked wonderfully & these little sandwiches were much enjoyed! Another time I'll have to make them just for the 2 of us to enjoy, as they are satisfyingly tasty! Thanks for posting the recipe!
