Koopers Turducken Burger

READY IN: 50mins




  • * Personal note:
  • I suggest that you soak your duck breast in very cold light brine for 24-48 hours to get the gamey flavor out of it. Change the brine after each day.
  • Brine Recipe:
  • 4 cups water.
  • 1/4 cup salt.
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar.
  • Heat water to boiling, dissolve salt and sugar into water. Let brine cool completely before submerging duck breasts in chunks. I recommend placing it into the refrigerator to get it cold.
  • Patties:
  • In a bowl, add the meat, herbs and salt and pepper. Mix all together well done making 8-oz. each patty.
  • Grill your Turducken patties to minimum 165 degrees and melt your Irish Porter Cheese on them. The bacon grease adds fat, we want to aim for a 80/20 mix of meat to fat, much like ground beef.
  • To build the burger:
  • Brioche Bun.
  • 2 Bacon Strips.
  • Baby Spinach.
  • Tomato.
  • 2 Oz of Cranberry-Dijon Mustard Sauce.
  • Turducken Patty + Cheese.

  • Sauce:
  • In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together.
