Timothy's Turkey Burgers

Makes 12 Burgers

3 lbs ground turkey
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely diced onion
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


In a large bowl, mix turkey, bread crumbs, onion, egg whites, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper. Form into 12 patties. Cook in a skillet, on an outdoor grill, a Foreman grill or you can broil in your oven! 

Okay, so there's a story behind this one. I used to love using ground turkey in place of ground beef. When my husband and I were poor college students, we used to make miniature burgers out of ground turkey because we liked it, and also because it was DIRT cheap! We'd serve them with shoestring fries and it was one of my favorite meals. Then I got pregnant with our daughter Annabelle, and suddenly I couldn't eat ground turkey. The sight, the smell, the taste, the very THOUGHT of it made me throw up. Annabelle is now 6 years old and I hadn't eaten a single bite of ground turkey since being pregnant with her in 2001 until earlier this summer when I went to my brother Timothy's for a Memorial Day pool party and bbq. He made these burgers. They smelled heavenly. I took a risk and tried one. I about fainted, they were beyond delicious. The seasonings were perfect, the meat was moist and flavorful and I am now once again a ground turkey lover! And I owe it all to him! So here you have it, Timothy's Turkey Burgers!
