Ready In:




  • Mix together ground turkey, chopped onion, garlic, soy sauce and egg. Mixture will be very wet. Plug in griddle and heat to 350, or you can fry them in a pan with a little cooking spray to keep from sticking.
  • divide meat mixture into 6 portions and pat out to about 1/2 thickness. They will be about 4 to 6 inches round. They shrink up a lot so I pat them a little larger than the buns diameter. fry about 5 min and flip and fry on the other side about 5 minutes or until done.
  • For sauce: mix together mayo, mustard, tabasco and about 1/2 to 1 cup chopped fresh basil. Place Burger on bun top with sauce, and add desired veggies. MMMM.

    This is delicious. I normally dont like soy in things like burgers but the hint of it just set it off perfectly. The basil sauce is yum, i used low fat sour cream for it rather than mayo. Loved it.

"The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra" Welcome to my page. I am glad you stopped by for a visit! I am a happy, busy homemaker from California. I have three fast growing children that I home school and a very sweet husband. I am a born again Christian and love my dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I attend the Church of God in Carmichael, where the truth is preached and people are being set free from sin. We welcome you to come and visit us at: I collect old and nostalgic cookbooks. I have been cooking since I was a youngster when I cooked, at times, for 12 or more people using whatever I could dig out of our kitchen cupboards. Sometimes that wasn't much, but still I was able to mix up something that would bring a lot of ooohs and ahhhs. That is still the way I cook most of the time. Saves a lot of money, but its not always easy to replicate a recipe. I love eating and cooking healthy but am not a stickler to it. My passion is Christ and helping souls be saved and find a new and wonderful life in Him. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
