        CAPRESE TURKEY BURGERS

       

  • PREP TIME 0:10
  •  
  • COOK TIME 0:08

The classic, ever-popular Italian Caprese, a simple, yet exquisite combination of fresh tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, olive oil and balsamic vinegar gives a fresh look boring (but admittedly healthy) turkey burgers. Serve these over mixed greens, on burger buns or bistro-style, on grilled ciabatta rolls, perhaps with a smear of pesto aioli.

  • ingredients
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey $4
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten $1.50 for 6
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced Pantry
  • 3/4 tsp each salt and freshly cracked black pepper Pantry
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more for the pan Pantry
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar Pantry
  • 1 small handful fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced $1 for a bunch
  • about 15 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved $3.50 for 12 oz.
  • 3 oz. mozzarella cheese (or use mozzarella di bufala), cut into 1/2” cubes $3.50 for 8 oz.
Total Cost of Ingredients: $13.50

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, egg, garlic, salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix until thoroughly combined.

Stir in the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, tomatoes and cheese. Mix gently until ingredients are well-distributed.

Use your hands to form the mixture into 4 even patties, and set them on a clean plate.

Heat a generous drizzle of olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Cook the burgers for about 4 minutes on each side, or until lightly charred on the outside and cooked all the way through.

Serve immediately, on buns, over mixed greens or plain. Top burgers with more mozzarella, tomato and/or basil, if desired.

Serves 4.
