BLT Turkey Burgers

Most people choose turkey burgers as the healthier option- I guess I’ll have the turkey burger. I actually just really like turkey burgers. Truly. My husband, like many, thinks turkey burgers are the lesser burger. And one of his big complaints is that he thinks they tend to be dry. So I’ve gone about trying to come up with a turkey burger recipe that would prove to him that the turkey burger can hold its own. Here you go.

* 1lb ground turkey
* 1/8C Greek yogurt
* 1/8C grainy dijon mustard
* 2 green onions, chopped
* 1T Worcestershire sauce
* 1t salt
* 1/2t black pepper
* 1 1/2t garlic powder
* 1/4-1/3C bread crumbs
* 1/4t cayenne pepper
* olive oil
* 8 slices thick cut, applewood smoked bacon
* 1 Roma tomato, cut into thick slices
* 4 leaves butter lettuce
* spicy dill pickle slices
* 4 pretzel buns, split

Mix together the turkey, yogurt, mustard, green onions, Worcestershire, and seasonings in a bowl until well combined. Form into 4 even-sized patties.

Heat a little olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Cook the burgers 10-12 minutes, flipping once.

Meanwhile, cook your bacon to your liking.

Assemble your burgers: place a leaf of the lettuce on the bottom half of the bun, and place a burger on top. Add pickles and condiments of your preference (I’m not going to tell you whether to use ketchup/mustard/mayo/whatever–do your thing!) on the burger. Then too with two slices of tomato and finish with two strips of bacon. Top bun that baby and enjoy!

Even the Mister was impressed–and had seconds!
