Hummus Turkey Burgers

Hummus turkey burger

This month for Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned to Megan's blog, Cooking Whims.  When I first got the assignment, I read through each of her blog posts and saved a bunch of them as separate tabs in my browser window.  I showed Joel the recipes I thought I wanted to make and he pared them down to this one.  Since we have had an unusually mild winter so far, I agreed that firing up the grill would make for a perfect dinner.  These burgers were quite delicious! We paired them with some parmesan roasted potatoes, which was a great choice!  I can see these burgers becoming a staple come summer-time.  Thanks, Megan, for sharing such a great burger recipe!

For the Topping:
1 Cucumber, diced
1/2 cup Feta Cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 teaspoon Dried Mint (I omitted, since I don't care for it)
1 tablespoon Olive Oil

In a small bowl, toss together the cucumber, feta, vinegar, mint, and olive oil with a sprinkle of salt.  Cover and refrigerate until serving.

For the Burgers:
1 pound Ground Turkey
1/2 cup Hummus, plus more for spreading
1/2 cup Fresh Parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons Ground Coriander
Toasted Burger Buns

In a bowl, mix together the turkey, hummus, parsley, and coriander. Season with your desired amount of salt and pepper. Shape the mixture into patties (I made 4).  Place the patties on the grill (lined with tinfoil and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray), and cook for 10-14 minutes, or until cooked through, flipping once.  (Alternatively, you can cook the burgers in a skillet over medium heat with 1-1/2 tablespoons of olive oil).  To serve, spread hummus on each half of the toasted burger buns.  Set the burgers on the bun and top with the cucumber-feta mixture, adding a tomato slice if you wish.

I love that you had help picking the recipe out. I have been trying to have my BF get more involved so he picked out this month's SRC recipe as well.

MMM! Adding hummus to a turkey burger is quite clever. I bet that it helps to keep it juicy while adding some texture and flavor. Love the toppings that go along with it.

Oh, these sound great!! I'm seriously missing my grill (we moved to an apartment and had to sell ours) and this just makes me want a good burger even more! I'm definitely saving this recipe, and going to try to make it indoors! Thanks!!
