This lovely recipe comes from the June 2007 issue of Family Fun magazine! I find plain turkey burgers to be very blah. These sound delicious. Haven't tried them yet, but will edit this recipe once I do.
Mix together the turkey, pear, egg, panko, parsley, garlic, sage, rosemary, and allspice in a large bowl until well combined.
Add the salt and pepper or more to taste. (to test the flavor, cook a tsp or two of the meat mixture in the microwave or small skillet).
Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and shape them into patties, gently pressing the center of each to create a slight indentation. This will prevent the patty from bulging in the center, so that you end up with a flat, evenly cooked burger.
Refrigerate the patties until the grill is ready.
Prepare a charcoal fire or a gas grill to medium-hot.
Wipe the rack with canola oil and lay the burgers on it indentation side up.
Let them cook, without pressing down on them, until the bottoms are well seared, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Flip the burgers and continue grilling until they are completely cooked through (the juices will run clear) another 5 to 7 minutes.
