Tasty Turkey Burger

Tasty Turkey Burger

1 red pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
12 fresh button mushrooms, diced or 1 (4.5 ounce) jar button mushrooms, diced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1.25 pounds ground turkey
3 1/2 tablespoons meatloaf seasoning or 33% less sodium meatloaf seasoning
1 egg, slightly beaten

In a large skillet, saute red pepper, onion, and mushrooms in olive oil until golden brown. Cool.

In a large bowl, combine sauteed vegetables, ground turkey, egg and seasoning.  Mix well.  

Form into patties and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  

Grill or fry until cooked through. 

My husband loved this turkey burger!  He said he liked it better than a regular grilled beef burger.  That's big coming from my beef loving husband!

The sauteed vegetables, not only make the turkey burger very moist, they also add a rich savory flavor to it.  The meatloaf seasoning, is the perfect blend of spices, to complement the sauteed vegetables and ground turkey.
