Introduction: Garlic Rosemary Turkey Burgers

A fragrant alternative to the boring hamburger. Easy to freeze for later, too.

Step 1:

Grate fresh garlic.

Step 2:

Finely chop fresh rosemary.

Step 3:

Add dried mustard and ground black pepper.

Step 4:

Squish together with ground turkey to mix. Detach small blobs for pattie formation.

Step 5:

Make nice big flat patties, and pile onto a plate.

Step 6:

Grill until nicely browned. Check interior with a sharp knife to make sure it bleeds (not pink).

Step 7:

Garnish in appropriate yuppie fashion.

Step 8:

Freeze extras between sheets of waxed paper. Stack them in pairs overnight, then transfer to zip-lock freezer bags for longer-term storage.

That's a really personal question! I'm a garlic fan, so I probably put in ~2 large cloves/pound of turkey. Processing method is important here, too: if you grate the garlic on a microplane or ginger grater it will be much more potent than if you chop it up. The fresher the rosemary, the stronger the flavors will be. I generally use one sprig per pound of turkey; your mileage may vary. Choping the rosemary in a coffee grinder makes things pretty easy, too. I grind pepper until my hands get tired, and just add a sprinkle of mustard over the top. The mustard is supposed to do more emulsification than flavoring.
