Below is my version/modification of Whole Foods’ AMAZING Clubhouse Turkey Burger recipe. Even if you don’t think you like turkey burgers you will love these! They are amazingly tender and juicy. You may never eat beef burgers again!!
Of course, the Honey BBQ Sauce is what makes them even tastier…
Yield: Serves 4
1lb ground turkey
6 strips bacon (about 1/3lb), cooked & crumbled
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup Honey BBQ sauce (recipe follows) or your favorite BBQ sauce
salt & pepper
Toppings: red onion, tomato, lettuce, bbq sauce
Mix together turkey, bacon, cheese, panko bread crumbs, BBQ sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl then divide unto 4 parts and form into patties. Brush or mist one side of the burgers with extra virgin olive oil or nonstick spray then cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through, brushing or misting the uncooked side with more oil before flipping. Top with toppings and serve on toasted buns. Serve with extra BBQ sauce.
