Recipe by OzzieFoodie
I meant to make Turkey Burgers tonight for dinner and found a recipe on Food Network from Bobby Flay which I altered slightly. Although it says Kofte, I thought it would still be yummy...and it WAS! I will say that it's not as much burger as it is kofte or meatloaf-like, but if you want a great recipe for ground turkey, here it is. Enjoy!

Nice burgers, Little Miss (DD) really loved this recipe. She has been unwell for a while and has been off her food. This has been her first 'big' meal for the pass two weeks. We served them with cheese, lettuce, tomato and gherkins. The spreads I put on the table was mashed avocado, mayonnaise, tomato sauce (ketchup) & chilli sauce. Turkey minced (ground) is really difficult to find in Australia, unless it's around Christmas time. I was really lucky to find some on sale (because it's not a sort out produce in Australia). I found I would have preferred these burgers more using Chicken mince BUT I think this is a personal preference because I'm not use to Turkey mince. HOWEVER I will make these again with Turkey (if I found it) for my Little Miss, she loved them. Thanks for posting your recipe OzzieFoodie
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1⁄4 large yellow onion, finely grated
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon adobe pepper, finely chopped (could substitute cayenne pepper)
- Lawry's Seasoned Salt (I used about 1 teaspoon)

Directions See How It's Made
- Mix all ingredients except turkey together.
- Add turkey and mix well.
- Form into large patties 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thick.
- Place onto a plate and separate patties with plastic wrap, then place in fridge for at least 1 hour to let flavors meld. (I pre-made the patties before-hand as I did not want to have to do them later. You could place the whole bowl in the fridge then form the patties before you cook them too.).
- When ready to cook, take plate of patties out and place oven on Hi broil.
- Spray broiler pan with Pam then add the patties.
- Broil patties about 6-7 inches from heat for 6 minutes one side, flip then broil 6 more minutes. Flip again, broil 2 more minutes then take out and add cheese to melt ontop.
- For my fixin's, I like to mix my mayo and ketchup together and spread on buns along with some avocado and sauted mushrooms, lettuce and tomato.
