Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    pounds ground turkey

  • 1/2

    cup fresh bread crumbs (I use Panko)

  • 3

    TBLSP mayonnaise

  • 2

    TBLSP chopped fresh chives

  • 1

    TBLSP Worcestire sauce

  • 1 1/2 to 3

    teaspoons of hot chile sauce such as Tabasco sauce (amount depends on how spicy you like your foods) or Tabasco Chipotle sauce

  • 2

    green onions, minced, white and green parts

  • 4

    fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

  • 1

    tsp sea salt or more to taste

  • 1/2

    tsp freshly ground pepper or mote to tase

  • 4

    hamburger buns, lightly toasted

Directions

Prepare you grill (either charcoal or gas) for direct high heat. Or right before cooking heat a griddle or large cast iron frying pan on the stovetop. Combine the turkey, bread crumbs, mayo, chives, green onions, Worcestire, chili sauce, basil, salt and pepper in a large bowl and work the mixture with your hands to just mix. Do not over mix or the burgers will be tough. Form the mixture into 4 1 inch thick patties. Season both side of the patties with salt and pepper. Grill them for 5-7 minutes on each side (when I make 2 large burgers I grill for 8 minutes on both sides). Or until a thermometer reaches 170. Turkey burgers should be cooked through, not rare. Toward the end of the cooking, put the buns on the grill to toast for about a minute. Remove the burgers from the grill to platter, cover and let rest for 5 minutes.
