What to serve with gourmet turkey burgers?

While I love a good pile of sweet potato fries or French fries, I tend to serve healthier side dishes with my burgers. Try this baked zucchini and ricotta casserole, rosemary lemon roasted cauliflower, or even Brussels sprouts and leeks!

These gourmet turkey burgers are incredibly juicy with just the right amount of kick to bring the excitement to the table. The flavors blend seamlessly together: the spice from the burger offsets the tangy goat’s cheese and the sweet caramelized onions.

And sun-dried tomatoes are just for fun. And just for me because sun-dried tomatoes make me smile.  🙂

Ingredients  

Instructions 

  • Mix together ground turkey, salt, pepper, and red pepper. Form into 4 equal patties. Preheat a grill or a grill pan over medium high heat until searing hot. Brush grill pan or grates with olive oil right before adding the burgers.
  • Cook the burgers until a thermometer read 165° or the insides are no longer pink. This cook time will depend on how thick you form your patties. Mine took approximately 12 minutes.
  • While the burgers cook prepare your toppings and slice the baguette into 4 pieces and cut each in half. Smear each piece of the baguette with goat’s cheese to your taste.
  • Top with a burger, caramelized onions, sundried tomatoes and arugula. Enjoy!

  1. Looks delicious. So these are the turkey burgers you were making those caramelized onions for that one time! I take it that your caramelized onions have been perfectly mastered now.

    When we make patties for family meal at work, this is how we eat them too, on baguettes….since our bakery side sells baguettes and we use the leftovers for family meals and croutons or whatever.

    1. Indeed it was 🙂 I would eat my finger on a baguette…not really, that’s gross, but you get the idea!

      The idea was to have some left overs of this baguette for French onion soup but we ate it all!

  2. I would definitely say that goat’s cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and caramelized onions are my perfect gourmet trifecta too! Can’t wait to try this with some ground chicken soon. These burgers look delicious!!

    1. Haha! There is just something about the combo that makes me feel so posh! I hope you do try them!
