Yes, there is a turkey burger that my red meat eating boys will eat! After several attempts of trial and error - I have come up with a flavorful, juicy burger that has made it into our regular rotation of meals. Makes 5-6 large, thick burgers. Watch closely when cooking for the first time, because the ricotta - which adds the extra moisture - can burn easily.

  1. Mix all ingredients together with hands.
  2. Form into patties of desired size and thickness. If you keep them fairly thick, they will be moister.
  3. Place into lightly greased, non stick skillet (I like using my cast iron skillet)on medium high. Cook without moving until bottom side is dark brown and crusted - appx 4-5 minutes.
  4. Turn over, then reduce heat to medium and cook 8-10 minutes longer or until center is no longer pink and juices run clear.
  5. I serve on ciabatta rolls with mayo, more Dijon, a slice of pepper jack cheese, lettuce and tomato. Yum!
