Turkey Burgers with Green Apple Slaw

I've never really been a fan of turkey burgers.  But these are different.  They're juicy, and loaded with herbs, garlic, and other good stuff.  They actually came out awesome. 

Start by mixing all of the ingredients together - turkey, minced onion, garlic, herbs, eggs, salt and pepper.

Give it a whiff.  You should smell the aromatics.  If you don't smell anything, add another clove of garlic.

I didn't want to add bread crumbs but Charlie was having a hard time forming patties.  So we threw them in to bind the patties.

Patty cake patty cake bakers man...

While Charlie was grilling up the burgers, I made the slaw, cabbage, onions, green apple, and a tangy dressing.  I love adding slaw to burgers.  It provides a nice crunch and some creaminess. My BFF Colleen was over so she helped me dress it up.  

Yum.  I wish I had more of this stuff.  We ate the entire bowl in one day.

TURKEY BURGERRRRSSS.  I went sans cheese but Charlie added Swiss.

Check it out!  We will be making these again - SOON!


1 Lb Ground Turkey
1/2 White Onion, Minced
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1/4 Cup Fresh Dill, Stems Removed, Chopped
1/4 Cup Chives, Chopped
2 Tsp of Kosher or Sea Salt
1 Tsp of Ground Pepper
1/2 Cup of Panko Bread Crumbs
Swiss Cheese

1 Head of Green Cabbage, Chopped
1/2 White Onion, Minced
1 Green Apple, Diced
3/4 Cup of Hellman's Mayo
2 Tbs of Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbs of Agave Nectar
Salt & Pepper

For the burgers, mix all of the ingredients together and grill about 6 minutes per side.  Add cheese, if desired.    In a large bowl add the cabbage, onion, and apple.  In a separate bowl, mix mayo, vinegar, agave, and salt and pepper.  Taste and adjust if needed.  Add to the slaw, and toss.  Add the turkey burger to a whole wheat bun and pile high with slaw.

Stay hungry!
