So I'm going to try and organize this blog thing a bit and have labels for each post so you can go to main dishes or sides or favorites and have all the recipes you want. I also want to have a label for tips and tricks in the kitchen. I think having different labels will help organize the archive better. Oh and feel free to leave comments on the recipes and let me know if you tried them out!
Alot of these recipes I created myself and have tried them out on my family and friends. Since Darwin has City Council tonight, it will be left overs from the super bowl party. So turkey Burgers it is! I like eating the turkey burgers on a nice homemade bun but store bought ones work just as well. Enjoy!
Fontina Turkey Burgers with Salami and rosemary dijon mayo:
2lbs ground Turkey
1/2 cup onions, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
16 slices hard salami
8 slices smoked Fontina cheese, cut in half
Combine all but the last two ingredients in a large bowl. Combine with hand till fully mixed. If meat seems to wet add a bit more bread crumbs. Meat should be a good constistancy that will hold together when formed into burgers. Divide the meat into 8 even portions. Take one section of the meat and divide it in two. Form a small patty with one half of the portion. Take 1/2 slice of the fontina cheese and place on the small patty. Then use the remaining portion of meat on top of the cheese. Squeeze the sides of the burger to seal in the cheese center. Cook the burgers completely through, I use a non-stick griddle. Only turn the burgers once. Near the end of the cooking time top burgers with 2 slices of the hard salami each and the other half piece of the fontina cheese. Allow cheese to melt then serve. (Cook about 8 minutes per side, till completely cooked through)
Rosemary Dijon Mayo:
1 cup mayo
2 T Dijion Mustard
2 tsp rosemary
combine all ingredients and serve on buns with the turkey burgers, along with onion, tomato and lettuce.
