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...

Really?  I'm a nonnie and found out the hard way that I would never but oatmeal again into my meatloaf.  Yuk!  Disgusting!  Is it really a 'nonnie' thing?  If so, why?

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.

The OP has millet flour in the burger recipe as a filler...  It wasn't in the meat at time of purchase...

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.

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...

Is it your practice to suggest such words as "abomination", "weird", to describe people's food in their face and in public? Or are you investigating more deeply into the forum's etiquette?
