Total prep time: 10-15 Total cook time: 21 minutes (approx.)
2 lbs. or 2 Packages ground turkey (you can use beef or chicken if you prefer)
½ small onion thinly sliced
4-5 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1 Tsp Black pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
¼ t- ½ cup BBQ sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray’s)
Favorite cheese for making chees burgers (optional)
Equipment: Small Sauté Pan, broil pan
Place a small saute pan, lightly coated with EVOO, over a low-medium flame.
Add in onions & garlic, stirring until a simmer, then add in the black pepper, cover and let simmer for approximately 3 minutes so that onions are soft.
Uncover & remove from flame.
Preheat oven to Broil on high.
Take both packages of ground turkey and place on your broil pan, side by side flat.
(Place aluminum foil in the underlying tray of the pan for easy clean up)
Pour your BBQ sauce evenly all over the meat, then spread your onion & garlic mixture on top of the BBQ sauce. The mixture may still be warm.
Then using your hands, fold the mixture into the meat blending it all together.
The meat and the mixture will combine so that you will be able to create burger patties.
2lbs/2packages of ground meat should make 6 large burger patties.
Place your burgers in the broiler for ten (11) minutes, then flip over and broil another 10 minutes. Lower the broiler to Low setting and add your cheese to melt (approximately 15 seconds)
* When using turkey or chicken always check internal temperature with a meat thermometer for 180. When using beef cook to desired taste.
Place your favorite toppings on your burger and Enjoy!
