George Foreman and Turkey Burgers :-)

Here is what you need

I almost forgot to tell you about this one. Number one: I purchased a George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor electric grill. Now don’t go crazy on me but it is not as bad as you may think. Last night dinner was (number 2) turkey burgers and here is what you need:

20 ounces of fresh ground turkey

½ cup of fresh spinach – chopped

3 medium mushrooms –chopped into bite size pieces

¼ – ½ cup red bell pepper – chopped

1 tablespoon Parmigianino reggiano cheese – grated

1 tablespoon of my special seasoning

1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper

1 tablespoon of EVVO


Mix all of the ingredients together except the turkey. Because at this point the mixture is safe to taste, you can taste and adjust the seasoning according to your taste buds. It takes a little less salt to make me happy and you may want to add more at this point. Add in the turkey and mix well once this is done place in the refrigerator to cool for at less an hour.

I then take the mixture out of the fridge and shape into four large patties (it could make more depending on the size you like) and return to the fridge until dinner time. For best results take the meat out of the fridge and allow it to adjust to the room temps while the grill is heating up. Placing meat on a grill or in an oven directly from the fridge will shock the meat and cause a lot of shrinkage.


Burgers on the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Electric Grill

This is a tasty and colorful burger. It also makes for great sliders. Because I cannot have wheat I served my burger wrapped in a large leaf of lettuce with a slice of havarti cheese and mustard. And don’t forget to add cheese while the burgers are on the grill.



As for the grill, it makes for a wonderful experience. At first I thought I was nuts for even thinking of purchasing it, but this thing it really great for indoor rainy days and you never have to think twice about gas and charcoal. I seem to think it is an easy clean up. The night before dinner was turkey cutlets with zucchini on the grill. I love my gadgets and this one is a keeper.
