Yummy burgers that came across on accident! This is a variation on Rachael Ray's Turkey Club Burgers. I make this using Fresh Basil Pesto - Freezer Directions ( http://www.food.com/recipe/fresh-basil-pesto-freezer-directions-454141 )

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Bake bacon on slotted broiler pan until crisp 15-20 minutes.
  3. Combine meat with paprika, poultry seasoning, grill seasoning, parsley and shallots. Mix well and form into 4 (1/4 pound) patties.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Cook meat patties 4-5 minutes per side. (can be cooked on the grill as well).
  5. Mix pesto and mayonnaise. I make my pesto [Fresh Basil Pesto - Freezer Directions] homemade - omit the cheese, and freeze it. I thawed a cube of pesto and then added that mayonnaise. Easy!
  6. Split and toast rolls.
  7. Place cheese (omit for dairy free) and burgers on bun bottoms and top with 2 slices bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, and set in place. Top bun tops with pesto mayonnaise and set in place.
