Amazeballs Ground Turkey Burger







Yum. Yum. BBQ season baby! Here is what Chef Kev has been up to recently - and it's a gooder.



















In our ongoing quest to eat healthy, this low-fat burger solution didn't disappoint! Packed with just as much flavour as a traditional beef burger - but with fewer calories - this amazeballs turkey burger hit the spot. And the chawesomesauce that Chef Kev made for the bun is ridiculously tasty.

Oh, and as always, I have to state the Chef Kev disclaimer: the ingredient portions are his best guesstimate as he's one of those chefs that just adds ingredients without measuring and adjusts until it's to his liking. Please experiment by using these measurements as a guide :).

Hey, I'm just happy I could make him pause MasterChef long enough to give me this much 'mkay.

Ground Turkey Burgers

ingredients for burger: (makes 4)
1 lb ground turkey
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
1 egg
1/2 - 1 1/2 tbs ancho chile powder 
1/2 - 1 1/2 tbs chipotle powder
cilantro -1 handful, finely chopped
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 lg shallot
3 cloves garlic
2 tsp worcester sauce
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt

To make the burgers, mix all the above ingredients together and form patties. A tip is to use vegetable oil on your hands to help the raw meat not stick to them. Once formed, fire up the BBQ and have at 'er.

Sriracha Mayo spread
Combine low-fat mayonnaise and sriracha hot sauce. The amount of sriracha depends on your love of heat. if this is your first time using it, try a few drops, mix into the mayo, taste and adjust to your liking.

To assemble your burgers, spread your Sriracha Mayo on a bun (we love the heavily multi-grained variety for this burger) add your burger patty and top with the following: tomato, finely sliced red onion, sliced avocado, arugula and shaved cheddar and/or parmigiano reggiano or grana padano cheese. Chef Kev asked me to note here though that when making these again he would probably not use the cheddar. The choice is up to you though!

Enjoy!

  3. Hi Elaine! Yum! This looks delicious. Way to go Chef Kev. He cooks like the typical Korean mothers (it's so hard to get my mom and MIL to right down recipes as there is none.."just measure with your eyes." they say haha) Sriracha mayo is a lovely touch ;)
