Smokey Barbecue Turkey Burgers w/ Caramelized Onions

One of my favorite young chefs is hanging out at The Café today………..
…………… daughter-in-law, Lindsay! I have the feeling she’ll be on your favorite list too after you try her fabulous turkey burgers ……………

We love dinner on the grill, especially when the weather is nice. When Chris mentioned she had some wonderful brioche buns, I knew these turkey burgers would be ideal on them. I’ve been making these for a few years and they’ve become a house favorite. They are moist and flavorful thanks to the barbecue sauce. The turkey also provides a lean alternative to beef burgers. These go perfect with baked sweet potato fries.  ~ Lindsay

Smokey Barbecue Turkey Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Ingredients for the burgers:
1 pound ground turkey
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce, plus more for serving (we love Sweet Baby Rays!)
2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs (I used Panko)
2 teaspoons mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons minced onion
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions for the burgers:
1.  Mix together all ingredients. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and form into patties.


2. Heat the grill to medium/ medium high heat. Grill on one side for about 4 minutes or until the outside edges are browned. Flip over and cook for an additional 2 minutes, then top with cheese. Cook for 1-2 more minutes until the cheese melts. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Ingredients for serving:
Buttery Brioche Sandwich Rolls or hamburger buns
barbecue sauce
cheese of your choice ( I used Provolone)
caramelized onions
