Recipe: Da Jive turkey burger
- 1 pound ground turkey (thigh meat)
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 8 sandwich potato rolls
- 1/4 cup melted butter
Combine ground turkey and Worcestershire sauce, and form into 4-ounce patties, about a half-inch thick. Add salt and cook patties for about 3-3 1/2 minutes on each side. Measure with a meat thermometer (burgers should be cooked until 160 degrees). To test without a thermometer, flip burgers once browned and make a slight slit on one side. If the liquid that secretes is clear, the patties are done; if it is cloudy and brownish, continue to cook for an additional 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side.
Heat flattop until very hot. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Lather the inside of the top and bottom of the bun with the melted butter and place on flattop until it browns, approximately 30-45 seconds.
