My husband gets all the credit for this recipe. He and I were going through a healthy meat phase a while ago and found a lot of different recipes for turkey burger. We didn’t really like any of them 100% so, John came up with his own recipe.
1 lb lean ground turkey
1/4 lb lean ground pork
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 green onions, chopped
1 egg, well beaten
3 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 ground pepper
3 tbsp soy sauce
In a blender mix green pepper, onion, egg, milk, salt, pepper, and soy sauce until smooth. Pour over bread crumbs. Let stand to soften. Mix pork and turkey, add crumb mixture. Mix well. Make into 6 – 3/4″ thick patties. In a non-stick frying pan (electric) heat and coat pan with 1 tbsp olive. Cook patties over medium heat until done. Brush with orange marmalade. Serve on whole wheat bun with tomato, lettuce and onion slice. YUM!
NOTE: You can grill them but they are very soft and have a tendency to stick and break into the flames.
We like simple meals at our house. Especially for our 2 year old, she is somewhat picky. One of her favorite foods is pasta. She loves it! Spaghetti is by far her favorite meal. Well, we have noticed as of late all of us are lacking in the vegetable department. I have a serious issue with vegetables, I just don’t enjoy eating them, I may go so far as to say I do not like them. So, I hide them in food as much for me as I do for Savannah. When I say hide, I mean it, I don’t like chunky sauce it gets put through the blender. As I was preparing this dish, I felt like I was putting baby food in our pasta.
I started this recipe with my family’s tradition spaghetti sauce recipe, tomato sauce and spices. I thought about it and realized, there was no reason I could not add some veggie puree to the tomato sauce before adding the pasta. We gave it shot and then realized it needed some other flavors to make it a little less blah. The result was fantastic! I could not tell I had eaten a whole serving of vegetables, my two year old devoured hers, and my husband in his usual way made yummy sounds while he was eating. It definitely no longer tasted like spaghetti, but it was a hit at our house that will be made again and again.
I enjoy mine with some Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
