The best turkey burger ever!
Besides, when I was in Hungary the only vegetarian thing I could find was deep-fried cheese.
Thus I have become mostly unabashedly meat-eating. And this is the best turkey burger I have ever eaten. Normally I make some cole slaw to put on top and some curry mayo, but this time I did sautéed red cabbage with balsamic vinegar, sprouts, japanese mayo and yes, that's ketchup oozing out. I love ketchup.
The Best Turkey Burger, with slapdash measurements because that's how I cook
2-1/2 lbs.(or thereabouts) ground turkey (organic and free-range if you can find it)
1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/4 cup minced onion
1 clove minced garlic
Two generous splashes of Worcestshire sauce
One generous splash of soy sauce
Dash of parsley
Dash of Old Bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of fresh ground black pepper
Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix goopily with your hands. Form some patties, and they won't shrink down so make them the same size as your buns. Cook them in a skillet over medium heat with some oil, until they're cooked through. Toast some buns, choose your condiments, inhale.
The red cabbage is just slivered red cabbage sautéed slowly in olive oil, with a couple dashes of balsamic vinegar, lots of salt and pepper, and black mustard seeds. In the background is also raw zucchini salad, which is just zucchini slivered with a peeler mixed with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. We also had corn on the cob with lime and salt.
That was a good meal.
