Bistro Turkey Burgers
Topped with smoky grilled onions and Swiss cheese, these are no ordinary burgers.
- 1 envelope (1 ounce) dry onion soup mix, divided
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
- 1 pound lean (93%) ground turkey
- 1 egg white
- 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
- 1 garlic clove, pressed
- 4 red or sweet yellow onion slices, cut 1/2 inch thick
- 4 slices (1 ounce each) Swiss cheese
- 4 onion rolls, split
- 4 tablespoons honey mustard
Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium coals. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of the soup mix with 2 tablespoons of the water. Add turkey, egg white, parsley snipped with Professional Shears and garlic pressed with Garlic Press; mix lightly but thoroughly using Pastry Blender. Form turkey mixture into 4 round patties, 1/2 inch thick.
For basting sauce, combine remaining 1 tablespoon soup mix with 1/4 cup water in Small Micro-Cooker®. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds.
Place patties and onion slices on grid of grill. Brush both with basting sauce using BBQ Basting Brush. Grill, uncovered, 5 minutes; turn patties and onions with BBQ Turner and brush with basting sauce. Grill 5-6 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in center and onion is tender. Place 1 slice of cheese on each patty; grill an additional minute or until cheese is melted. Remove from grill.
Meanwhile, place roll halves, cut side down, on grid of grill. Grill 1-2 minutes or until rolls are lightly toasted. Place burgers on bottom halves of rolls. Spread 1 tablespoon mustard on top half of roll and top with onion slice.
