Turkey Burgers with Miso Maple Glaze
Turkey burgers can be bland and dry. Not a great combo. By adding a little fat to the meat and finishing with a glaze, you end up with a great burger. Misty Knoll ground turkey already has a rich flavor, but by adding the miso you get a fuller, richer bite.
|Turkey Burgers with Miso Maple Glaze|| |
- 1 pkg. ground turkey (roughly 1.5 pounds)
- 1 tablespoon miso
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped or pressed
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
- 1½ teaspoons miso
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- In a bowl gently combine the ground turkey, miso, garlic and sesame oil. Separate into 4 equal portions and form into patties. To cook inside, use a heavy skillet (cast iron works well) and heat over medium until very hot. Swirl in a tablespoon or so of cooking oil and add the burgers. Cook over medium heat without moving burgers until bottom side of each is dark brown and crusted, about 6 to 8 minutes. Turn burgers and continue to cook for another 6 to 8 minutes. If you are unsure about doneness use a thermometer poked from the side into the center of the burger – it should read 160 degrees. The same temp reading goes for burgers cooked on the grill.
The side salad in the picture is a total non-recipe. I used what I had hanging out in my fridge: a beet, carrots, parsley, cilantro, cider vinegar & sunflower oil. I grated the beet and 2 carrots, roughly chopped the herbs stirred together with a splash of oil & vinegar and seasoned with salt and pepper to taste. And that’s often how I cook!
