Turnip Burgers

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sandy 0225

This sounds weird, but the addition of turnip and grated onion makes your burgers tender, tasty, and juicy. In addition, adding the turnip to the meat makes more burgers! This recipe was originally created by my mom when she had lots of turnips and lots of kids to feed too...it's a fall tradition around here now. The kids don't even know that there are veggies hidden in there!

These were pretty good, but you could still taste the turnip. The major plus was that my kids ate them and had no clue there was turnips mixed in.....I would definitely do this again if I get turnips in my CSA box.

  1. Put the lean ground beef in a bowl.
  2. Peel the turnip and cut the turnip into slices or chunks. Put it into the bowl of the food processor. If you don't want to use a food processor, grate it finely on a grater.
  3. Peel the onion and place it into the food processor along with the turnip, or grate it finely also.
  4. Process the turnip and onion together until finely ground.
  5. Put the turnip and onion in the bowl with the ground beef and mix thoroughly with your hands.
  6. Form into 6 patties. Sprinkle patties with salt and pepper. Place patties on a cookie sheet.
  7. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Turn burgers over after 10 minutes. Bake until your desired doneness.
