Thursday Recipe Exchange: Burger Week, Part 2

Spicy Lamb Burgers by JeffreyW

I’m travelling again, but made sure to get this ready for you. I decided since I had so many burger recipes I would make a whole week of it. The posts include Cuban Burgers, Dill Burgers, Jalapeno Burgers, Focaccia Burgers and the recipes can be found here.

If burgers aren’t your thing, I also have a week of peach recipes at this link.

That should be enough to keep you busy until I get back. What are you grilling this weekend?

The featured recipes tonight are a Curried Turkey Burger from me and a Spicy Lamb Burger (pictured) from JeffreyW.

Curried Turkey Burgers

Always looking for new flavors to grill and since I love good pita bread, something that would go nicely with that.  Came up with this for a taste treat and a perfect way to use ground turkey since it can be bland if not well seasoned before grilling.  Serve with fresh corn on the cob and grilled eggplant.

  • 1 to 1-1/2 lb ground turkey
  • 3 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp ground curry
  • 1/8 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 4 pita breads

bowl

In bowl combine all ingredients except bread and mix well. Form 4 patties and grill, broil or fry to desired doneness. Serve in pita bread. Ground mustard and mayonnaise make good toppings or a little Greek salad dressing, along with lettuce & tomatoes.
