The Sneaky Zucchini Turkey Burger Recipe

Zucchini Turkey Burger
Viola! A super tasty turkey burger

Because sometimes you have to sneak those veggies in! But also, because the addition of grated zucchini makes these turkey burgers nice and juicy. I made these last night and was really happy with the result. They are a little mushy when raw, so it helps to stick them in the freezer before grilling. You can also pan fry or broil them without freezing first.

Ingredients for turkey burger recipeIngredients:
1 1/4 lb. ground turkey
1/2 cup finely grated zucchini
1/3 cup mayo (I used Miracle Whip)
1/2 cup unflavored breadcrumbs
2 Tbsp. finely chopped sweet onion
2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 Tbsp. Kosher salt (more or less to taste)

Makes 6 Burgers

Instructions:

  1. Use a large cheese grater to grate the zucchini. I followed up with a little extra chopping to make it nice and fine. Then put it into a paper towel and squeeze out the excess water.Grated zucchini
  2. Finely chop the sweet onion (I used Vidalia onions) and garlic. Or cheat like me and use minced garlic that comes ready-to-use.
  3. Chop the parsely
  4. Mix everything up in a big bowl
  5. Form into 6 pattiesIMG_9207
  6. Put them in the freezer until firm if you want to grill them, or you can pan fry or broil them.
  7. Enjoy a glass of wine while patties are firming up, if you chose that method. This is also a good reason to freeze them.A glass of wine for the cook
  8. Cook ’em up and enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

    *So how did the toddler react? He threw a fit, yelled “I don’t want the stinky burger!,” then ate all of it.
