Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mince bread in a food processor and transfer crumbs to a bowl. Add turkey, mushrooms, egg, green onions, bacon, hot sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix well and divide into 4 portions. Form each portion into a patty.

  • Preheat a grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Cook patties until no longer pink in the center, 12 to 14 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute panko bread crumbs for the crumbled bread, or use sprouted grain bread. End pieces are preferable.

You can mince the mushrooms in the food processor.

Use turkey bacon, if you prefer.

You can replace the chopped bacon with 1/3 cup bacon bits.

These turned out great and were super flavorful. My package of turkey was a pound and a half so I decided to experiment. While egg and breadcrumb are fine for most it makes it too meatloafish for our liking not to mention extra carbs. With my extra half pound of meat I made 2 burgers without the egg and breadcrumb. Because they had no binder I stuck them in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm them up so that they would stay together on the grill. They worked wonderfully and we actually preferred them over the ones made as written. Good as written but just wanted to let everyone know they work the other way too. Read More
