I think that part of the wonderfulness of turkey is that it is bland! It will take any flavor you put with it, so I suggest you add flavors you love.

My favorite turkey burgers are seasoned with poultry seasoning and sweet basil. I add some grated ginger (for gentle heat), and minced white onion. This mixture is a bit "wet", so I add some ground pork rinds blended with parmesan cheese, and seasoned with a rich blend of spices. These are very flavorful, and taste great topped with swiss cheese and a slice of tomato. Or skip the cheese, and use mayo. Yum.

Ella gurl, Can ya tell me were I might find the George Stella Chili Burger Recipe? I went to food network and it just brought up Rachel Rays recipe, typed in George Stella, found nothing Went on a "Yahoo" search and typed in what you have and it did not bring any thing up. I would like to try a Chili Buger recipe that is a little less ingredents then Rachel Rays recipe, to much for me, sounds good, to many ingredents.
Maybe just add chili seasonings to the Turkey, or make it like a sloppy joe style?? Thanks for any help.

I mix the turkey with bacon crumbles, and shredded cheese. a little ranch seasoning, and the make patties and put them on the grill! - they are really good, my husband now prefers them to hamburgers.

I like to chop garlic, jalapenos (or just regular peppers) and onions, then mix it up with the meat. With a little black pepper and salt, you're good to go. Maybe a little worcesterchire sauce, mushrooms... Just use some spices and things you like and you'll probably enjoy turkey burgers more.

Sure! Well I can never get food networks site to come up on my work computer so I can't copy and paste the recipe, but here is the link...

http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._29465,00.html

I hope that works. If not, I will try again.

You can give them an chinese sort of twist with some garlic, chopped onions and green peppers, and a little soy sauce. Yummy!

My favorite way to make turkey burgers:

Sprinkle turkey patties with cumin, garlic powder & a little sea salt.

Grilling is my favorite way to cook them....When finished cooking add slice of cheese.

Top w/tbsp of sour cream & tbsp of ro-tel tomatoes.

Enjoy!

Had for dinner last night...used salsa but did not like as much as Ro-tels! They zest it up more.

Rachel Ray makes a lot of stuff with ground chicken - but I use her recipe for Danish Burgers all the time - ground chicken, chopped up Harvarti cheese with dill, finely chopped mushrooms, finely chopped shallot, poultry seasoning, dijon mustard, salt & pepper and some EVOO. These are my husband's favorites.

I'm not that struck on turkey burgers either...however, I really like meatballs and chili made with ground turkey! A lot of good ideas here though...it really is in how you season the meat beforehand.
