Recipe Blast: Blueberry Turkey Burgers


Recipe by BC Blueberries

1 lb lean ground turkey
3/4 cup B.C. blueberries (fresh or frozen, roughly chopped)
1/4 cup green onion (chopped)
1 large egg
1 tbsp whole grain mustard
1 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped or 2 tsp dry)
2 tsp fresh thyme (chopped or 1 tsp dry)
1 tsp garlic (finely minced or dry)
1 tsp paprika (mild or hot)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 tbsp bread crumbs or ground flax seeds (if needed)
2 tsp vegetable oil
3 tbsp barbecue sauce
4 whole grain burger buns

1. Pre-heat a heavy bottom pan or barbecue to 175°C (350°F)
2. In a bowl, mix all the burger ingredients and form four 3/4” thick patties. If mixture appears too wet, add bread crumbs or ground flax. Keep refrigerated until ready to cook.
3. Grease the grill with an oiled paper towel, or heat the oil in the pan.
4. Place patties on the pre-heated grill plate (or in pan), and sear on medium-high heat, cooking for approximately 5 to 7 minutes until browned. Carefully flip over, reduce the heat to medium-low and finish cooking for another 5 to 7 minutes until internal temperature reaches 75°C (165°F).
5. Brush with barbecue sauce and serve on buns with condiments as desired.

Yield: Serves 4 burgers
