Turkey Burgers with Gravy
Turkey is so versatile you can make so many
different variations. Here is my favorite way to make burgers. If you want them
to be even leaner, try using ground turkey breast. They will be drier and I
prefer lean ground turkey. Chicken base may be found on your grocery store’s
soup isle. If you can’t find it just use a cup of canned chicken stock.. When
I make this recipe I also make some instant mashed potatoes and a side dish of
20 ounces lean ground turkey
¼ cup minced shallot
⅓ cup Italian breadcrumbs
¼ cup minced celery
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
2 garlic cloves, pressed
tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons organic butter
4 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups hot water
2 teaspoons organic chicken base
1. Burgers: In a large mixing bowl,
combine the turkey, shallot, breadcrumbs,
egg, celery sour cream seasoning salt and garlic.
2. Form 4 burgers and fry in olive oil in a large frying pan until completely cooked.
3. Remove burgers from frying pan and make
