It's the start of grilling season so for my first recipe, I am going to do my favorite Mexican Turkey Burger recipe. This recipe is one of my staple recipes for freezer meals. I have made this for years. It works great to make on a weeknight or make and then freeze. It holds up well both ways. Here is how I make it.
Mexican Turkey Burger Freezer Meal
1 lb Ground Turkey
1 tsp dried Oregano
1 tsp Cumin powder
1-2 tsp Granulated Garlic
2 egg whites
2 Tbsp Salsa (Your favorite type)
1-2 cups of Panko Breadcrumbs
Other Additions and Toppings for Burger:
Whole Wheat Rolls
Slice of cheese or shredded cheese (I used non-dairy cheese)
First, place all the ingredients into a bowl and mixed well. Add the Panko breadcrumbs last a bit at a time so you can make sure the mix isn't too sticky. It holds up better in the freezer if it is less sticky.
Then, form the burgers. This recipe makes 5 burgers. I don't like my burgers too large, so 5 burgers make a good serving size.
At this point, to cook on the grill, use non-stick spray on one size and place on the grill. Cook for 6-10 minutes and then turn over and cook for another 6-10 minutes or until done. Make sure there is no pink inside.
If you want to freeze it, roll out a long piece of wax paper and then place two burgers next to each other. Then folded the burgers and place to more. Then, fold it again, and place the last one.
Then, wrap it with aluminum foil.
And, lastly, place it in a gallon bag for the freezer. I usually write on the bag the number of burgers and the type of burgers.
Here is the recipe to print:
I hope you enjoy this recipe. I have also added spicy seasoning to it as well, like cayenne pepper or spicy salsa. What is your favorite burger recipe? Please leave a comment below.
