You are probably asking yourself, "What the heck is a turken burger? Sounds like some kind of turkish parsnip!" Or if you are familiar with the infamous turducken you have probably realized that today's dish is a turkey/chicken burger (turducken minus the duck). ;-) Enjoy!
1 lb. Ground Turkey
1 lb. Ground Chicken
2 t. Italian Seasoning
1 T. Garlic Powder
Pinch of Salt
2 Dashes of Pepper
2 T. Butter
Sliced Portabello Mushrooms

- Mix together turkey and chicken with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Don't over-mix. Mix just until ingredients are combined.
- Divide into 8 equally sized patties.
- Preheat skillet to a med-high heat.
- Coat each side of the turken burgers with the Italian dressing and place in the pre-heated skillet.
- Pour about 2 T. of red wine onto each burger.
- Cook on each side approximately 4 - 7 minutes. It really depends on how your particular stove heats.
- Once the burgers are fully cooked, remove from pan and set aside.
- Add sliced mushrooms to hot skillet along with 2 T. butter.
- Sauté a few minutes and add 1/4 cup of red wine to deglaze pan. Continue to sauté until tender.
- Place cooked turken burgers back in the pan and turn heat down to low until the rest of your meal is ready!
- Put on top of a bun with all the fixin's and chow down! :-D
These burgers turned out delicious for me. The main reason I added the chicken to the turkey is because it was on sale for less than the turkey. There are usually two ways I develop new recipes....buying what's on sale, and using what I have left. Thanks for cooking with me.
