With the long weekend kicking off, these burgers are worth getting fired up about. Plus this recipe is simple enough that even the kiddos can help out with the meal prep.
1-1/2 lb (750 g) ground Ontario turkey
3 tbsp (45 mL) onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly ground black pepper
1 cup (250 mL) Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup (125 mL) mushrooms, sliced
6 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
1 green onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup (50 mL) mayonnaise
ONE: In a bowl, combine ground turkey, onion, garlic and pepper; mix well. Shape into 6 patties. In a small bowl, combine cheese, mushrooms, bacon, green onion and mayonnaise, mix well.
TWO: Broil or grill burgers 4-6 inches (10-15cm) from heat on medium temperature grill for 10-12 minutes, turning once. During the last several minutes of cooking, spoon 1/4 cup (50mL) topping on each burger. Continue cooking until cheese is melted.
