Cherry Turkey Burgers

"This recipe sounded a bit different, but it turned out really nice. Even DH, who was skeptical, enjoyed it. I got the recipe from a local market called Westborn. These were very easy to prepare."

    Hi Jenny, I loved these burgers and made them as directed. I also found the mixture to be very moist and had to double the bread crumbs. Next time I'll use one egg and see if that solves the problem. I took photos, but FLKeysJen's are better! Thanks for posting!

    A very good turkey burger. I soaked my cherries in a little red wine I had handy. Perhaps for this reason, I feltmy mix was quite moist, and so I used only a single egg. I panfried a couple of small patties to eat on small ciabatta rolls. The rest of the mixture was made into meatballs and cooked according to the method I described in this recipe, Recipe #448230, which I use a lot for all kinds of meatballs. Looking forward to the meatballs tomorrow for lunch!

    Loved these! I used turkey breast and they still weren't too dry, even without any kind of sauce on the burger. The parsley and sour cherries are a good combo. By mistake I bought dried cherries with pits and it was a tedious process to remove them - just wanted to mention this so others don't make the same mistake!


I work full-time as a School Psychologist in Michigan. Besides the kids, one of the best aspects of the job is summer vacation, when I can concentrate on doing more of the things that I like to do---like look up recipes and play games on Recipezaar!!! I married my wonderful and handsome husband, Sean, in August 2007. He is becoming a wonderful gardender and tends to both our veggie and herb gardens. We really enjoy cooking with our own fresh ingredients. We most often cook together, so my reviews typically reflect our joint opinions. He's the better cook, so I pick up a lot of my techniques from him. My other interests include reading (now that I have time), Irish dancing (I've taken a class for the last several years), "appreciating" wine (I use the term very loosely), and listening to and going to see Irish bands (I love the Pogues). I also enjoy travelling, especially around Western Europe, where I have been multiple times. One of my favorite places is Italy, and Sean and I had a great time on our honeymoon eating, drinking, and sightseeing in the Cinque Terre and in Tuscany. This July 2009, we expanded our horizons to Eastern Europe and visited the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia. Two of my favorite dishes on the trip were Croatian: fish brodet and Hvarska gregada. I am looking forward to trying my hand at making them at home as I see that someone on Zaar, who is Croatian, posted recipes for both! Besides my husband, the other lights of my life are my cats: Chloe, Pip, and my newest ragdoll cat, Giselle, all of whom I absolutely adore. <a href="¤t=PipChloe_web.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Pip and Chloe"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Giselle"></a> I've participated in the following events: <img src="" border="0" alt= "Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> I most recently had the privelege of being on the ZWT5 Team, the Sultans of Spice, with a great group of people.
