These flavorful burgers will satisfy even the red meat lovers in your family. They’re filled with mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, wheat germ and Dijon mustard. Cook them on the grill or in a grill pan on top of your stove.
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 cups chopped cremini mushrooms
3/4 pound lean ground turkey*
1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
In medium skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add garlic and mushroom and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes until mushrooms are soft. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
In large bowl, mix together turkey, wheat germ, Parmesan, mustard, black pepper and cooked mushrooms. Form into 4 patties or 8 sliders. Grill on the barbecue or in a pre-heated grill pan until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil and serve immediately with all the fixings: buns, sliced tomatoes, lettuce and pickles.
* This recipe works best using lean ground turkey that is not 99 percent fat free.
