Peach-Kissed Turkey Burgers
Peach Mayo Spread:
- - 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- - 1/4 cup peach preserves
- - 1 teaspoon mild Dijon or coarsely ground mustard
Whisk all ingredients together.
- - 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- - 1/3 cup minced onion
- - 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
- - 20 ounces (1 1/4 lbs.) ground turkey breast*
- - 2 tablespoons fresh minced parsley or 2 teaspoons dry parsley
- - 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- - 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- - 1/4 cup peach jam
- - 1 teaspoon Dijon or coarsely ground mustard
- - 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- - 4–6 quality buns or rolls
- - Lettuce
- - Red onion slices
- - Tomatoes
Heat oil in small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté, stirring frequently to prevent burning, for 2–3 minutes or until onion is tender and garlic is fragrant. Remove pan from heat and set aside. Important note: Do not discard olive oil. Add to meat to improve texture and keep meat moist. Place ground turkey in mixing bowl and break up with fork. Add parsley, salt, pepper, peach jam, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Add sautéed onion and garlic and remaining oil in pan. Use fork to gently toss meat and distribute ingredients evenly. To keep meat tender, do not overwork. Divide meat into 4 large or 6 small patties, forming evenly sized balls and gently shaping into patties. Because meat will likely shrink while cooking, make a ½-inch deep indentation with thumb in each patty. Burgers can be made up to this point and then frozen or stored in refrigerator up to 24 hours before cooking. For best results, chill patties at least 1 hour before cooking. Preheat indoor grill pan, skillet, or outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Brush hot cooking surface with vegetable oil. Place patties on cooking surface and cook 5–7 minutes on each side (flip only once), or until internal temperature reaches 165° F. Eat with peach mayo spread, sliced tomatoes, lettuce, and onion slices on toasted buns.
* Some ground turkey has as much, if not more, fat than regular ground beef. If eating turkey for health reasons, check nutritional information on packaging.
