I've just made some for lunch. It is very simple to prepare and they came out yummilicious.

I used thigh of turkey ground after removing the fat, kneaded it with some olive oil, turmeric, sweet paprika, ginger, coriander and some millet flour, formed burgers and let cook in little oilve oil in a covered square skillet with stripes (is there a word for it? it's just called stripes skillet over here). I started with medium heat, then reduced to medium-low, turned them once in the skillet. It took like 10-15 minutes to cook, and they came out so nice, that I had to write about it. It's the millet flour and olive oil that does it. Very tasty and of course filling.

I also put grated onion in the mix. Yet, I'll try your recipe too

I think "striped skillet" is "grooved skillet"?

I like grilled poultry when the precious fat/schmaltz hasn't been removed; there's just so little fat in poultry, and what's there supplies not only moisture but meat flavor. In fact, the fat is the reason the ground turkey usually used in burgers is the thigh- and not the breast-meat.

yes, it's better to grind your own turkey meat than to buy it pre-ground in a package.  The packaged ground turkey has flavors added to it.

Where I live, most of the whole turkey or turkey pieces sold have a salt solution added...  
The turkey burgers only have "flavors", which according to the manufacturer is spices only, mostly rosemary oil.  The burgers are better for me to use than buying the salt solution pieces and using those...

Have just prepared another batch, this time upgraded with quinoa flour instead of the millet (both superfoods in my SWAMI), an egg, and cranberry concentrate! This time it's already delicious.

Our ground turkey is just "turkey"  I like using cooked rice for our meatloaf, beef or turkey. We can get premade turkey with no additives  here as well.  Your spices are much I like use, sound wonderful.

I'm working on do head dinners. Meatloaf and shaped hamburgers (all kinds)  make great time savers.

Only reason I'd think to add flour to a turkey burger would be if I added any wet ingredients.  Ground
turkey, white meat, especially is super low in fat and can be dry....so by adding an egg, seasonings
and even whole cranberry sauce, the result is a much juicier burger.  My local health food store sells
plain ground organic turkey in packages.  Nothing added.

Thanks Chloe. The part I use is the thigh, almost red meat, I was told it's the most nutritional part. BTW turkey breast is too dry for me. The egg is for sticking the ground meat together, and also adds taste. The cranberry juice (I use concentrate) is for me a SWAMI major geno-harmonic combination with proteins, but it was only by deblynn3's advice that I became aware I could use it actually in cooking the meat, not just as a beverage.
http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1332541295/s-4/highlight-cranberr/#num4

I started to apply this (even if I only add it during cooking) and am ever so grateful - yummi!

I make my own food because I want to avoid fillers.  Adding any kind of flour to a hamburger patty seems like an abomination.  But if it works for you, that's great!

When you add your own fillers, you know what's in them. There's no white flour or GMO corn starch used as "fillers" when you mix in quinoa flour with the meat in your own kitchen.

I've found that nobody really likes turkey burgers in my house. We do like turkey meatballs with gravy, though, and I make that fairly regularly. When we want burgers, we want beef.

I used to always mix something in with the ground meat so it would go further- bread crumbs, or almond meal, or ground veggies. Then, after Superstorm Sandy when we had 2 pounds of ground meat in the deep freezer than needed to be used *that day* I cooked them with just spices added because I wanted to use the meat up quickly, needed to make sure it would all fit in my frying pan (no use of the oven) and I didn't want to use up non perishables if I didn't have to. Everybody loved the turkey meatballs I made that way, and I've been making them like that ever since (except I usually bake them rather than cooking them on the stove- it's easier and less likely to burn.)

Exactly. The same principle as in making meatballs from any other variety of ground meat. The egg in your polpette (Italian meatballs) calls for some breadcrumbs. Balancing...

This has gone on long enough, I think...

It would be fantastic if we could remember to be both less critical and also less sensitive when posting in public forums...

We, as a group, do much better when we realize that there are people who get hurt easily and those that are brutally honest.  The brutally honest would be more friendly if they re-read posts from a "sensitive person's" point of view, and the sensitive person would be less hurt if they understand that some people have very thick skin and don't realize how hurtful words can be to them...

Yeah, there's a huge difference between saying "that sounds completely un-appetizing to me" and "that food is an abomination."

I recall my own experiences as a vegetarian at meat-eater's tables. A simple "no thank you" is all that was ever required; never once did I rant about how meat was disgusting, unethical, or bad for the environment (though I did believe the latter two for quite some time.) I'd shared tables with less polite vegetarians and couldn't understand why they were so obnoxious to their hosts or friends at mealtimes.

The forum is very much if not mostly about food. No one, not participants who consider themselves more sensitive and not participants who consider themselves less sensitive, would like to feel that another participant has casually or otherwise spitted into their soup, or that he has been casually or otherwise disqualified as "weird". After all you are what you eat.

Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. ~ Leviticus 19, 17 (King James Bible)

You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason frankly with your neighbor, lest you incur sin because of him. ~ Leviticus 19, 17 (New English Version)

I only can agree... and ok also for me for the futur in trying to be less *brutally honest*   ... but must be honest... the workout with the Ruiz programs has helped me out here   of the finest....

and if we compare our psychograms... no wonder ....

p.s.

btw I also prefer some basmati rice in such a burger instead of anything else of a carb ...
gives me less stomach problems ....

HEY THANKS for the gound turkey thread!  I'm an A nonnie who is very happy with her beans and nuts but know that I need fish and meat sometimes.  I haven't yet been able to make a turkey burger that I like, no matter what I added or didn't add.  

However, reading this thread inspired me to get a package of Shelton frozen ground turkey out of the freezer and make Swedish meatballs which is something I do like. Now days I bake them instead of frying them and for the mushroom sauce I use yogurt in place of the sour cream I used to use.  

How did they turn out?  Well, hubby said he didn't mind cleaning up the major mess of bowls, baking dish, pans (from cooking veggies), etc. because the meal was so delicious.  And the best thing is that we have enough meatballs left for one more meal.  


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 2013: Started Swami Xpress - I'm 48% Explorer with hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!  -- LOST 5 more pounds on SWAMI!

We had one like this - mounted on a 2x8 6 ft. long and just used it manually when I was a youth.  
http://www.amazon.com/Sportsma.....79083419&sr=1-18
I found a clamp-on similar to this for cheap when I was in college, and it worked fine for small jobs.
http://www.amazon.com/Weston-Heavy-Manual-Tinned-Grinder/dp/B000BQSW44/ref=pd_sim_k_3

When we got married, we got an Oster Kitchen Center with a meat grinder as one of the attachments...  I'm not sure how durable the plastic "screw" would be when grinding meat with it...  I've used it mainly for grinding fruit to make jams...

This is the one we had at home 60 years ago  

Made of aluminium?   or tinned iron?

Either tinned steel or cast iron, although - according to the reviews, very poorly done, so I wouldn't recommend anyone purchasing this one...

My trusty old Cuisinart food processor works well for shredding lamb and turkey into a nearly "ground" state. Close enough for burgers.

I'm looking for something more robust: I feed raw to my animals, so need to able to grind soft bones like chicken necks and such...

yes, it's better to grind your own turkey meat than to buy it pre-ground in a package.  The packaged ground turkey has flavors added to it.


please explain how you know this thanks

Jazmine, the pre-packaged turkey meat found in regular grocery stores in my area (NM) have ingredient labels and they all state "natural flavors" as an ingredient.

Contact the company. Empire Kosher ground turkey also lists "natural flavors" as an ingredient, but the company told me it's simply rosemary oil- which I then checked on the typebase, and rosemary is compliant for Os and Bs. So I use that product without worry.

All it took was one email to the company. If there are a few brands readily available, it will be a few emails.

If the Natural Flavors is rosemary oil, why can't they put rosemary oil as the ingredient??! Grrr.

This way they have freedom to change what is added at a moments notice without changing the packaging...

If that's the case, then how can we be sure that each batch we buy has the ingredient they put on the label? I'm just venting; I don't expect an answer...if I'm buying ground turkey for my own consumption, I'll buy ground turkey thigh from Whole Foods...and the dogs get their meals from a local fresh raw dog food company, so we are all covered. Just sayin'.

I hear you.  We use it until it bothers us, then look for other sources...  Ultimately, we have to do the best we can with what is available.

After reading your following post,

Quoted from ABJoe
Where I live, most of the whole turkey or turkey pieces sold have a salt solution added...
I started to worry about the quality of the salt used in the slaughterhouses to kosher the beef/turkey meats. All kosher meats marketed in Israel are already salted and ready to cook. They are also very salty. I asked my learned butcher about this, and he assured me that no way any other thing is added there to the fresh meats in the koshering process but salt. The trouble is that you can't get here kosher meat which has not undergone salting. I'd rather buy unsalted meat and salt it at home like we used to do 55-60 years ago, with my own coarse atlantic salt... And then remove the fat and ground it myself for burgers...

As you say,

I've just talked to my WN (wonderful nephew, wunderbare Neffe), and he thinks that he bought somewhere - he can't remember exactly when and where -  kosher but not yet salted meat. So this is still under investigation.

Have just used my Kenwood multipro sense food processor for the first time to mince diced turkey and it did an excellent job.

Much better than what I received at the butcher's, and I trimmed the fat/connective tissue by myself. It's a lot of work, but apparently I have more time for this than the butcher, so the result is more satisfactory by far.
