Turkey Burgers

Turkey Burgers

The thing is, I don’t love turkey.  But I love mushrooms!  If you don’t like mushrooms ,this won’t be the recipe for you.  I tried these out on my new electric grill(which I’m obsessed with), and they came out perfect!


Half the recipe if this is too many burgers for your family.  My husband brought the leftover burgers to work for the next two days.

3 pounds of lean ground turkey

one package of baby bella muchrooms

one shallot

a small handful of fresh Italian parsley

2 tsp. of Worcestershire

2 tablespoons of EVOO

salt and pepper

your favorite bread or buns


  • Rinse and dry the mushrooms.  (If you want to go light on the mushroom flavor, use half the package)
  • Place mushrooms, shallot and parsley in a food processor until chopped small.
  • Place the mushroom mixture into a large bowl.  Add the turkey, olive oil, Worcestershire, and a little salt and pepper.
  • Mix well.
  • Make your patties.  I like thin burgers so that’s how I made mine.  Just make sure they are all consistent in size so they have the same cooking time.  Place in the fridge on a baking sheet.  Layer them with wax paper if stacking one row on top of the other.  Chill in the fridge for about an hour so they get firm before grilling.
  • Grill until cooked through.
  • Top with your favorite cheese and/or toppings and serve on a bun.

  • Enjoy!

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
