Sara's Spicy Boozy Turkey Burgers

We adapted this recipe ever so slightly from Sara Deseran’s Picnics cookbook.

  • 2 lb ground dark meat turkey
  • 1 c minced onion
  • 3 T dried bread crumbs (we use panko)
  • 2 T tequila
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • 2-3 tsp minced serrano chiles (or to taste)
  • 2 tsp minced fresh oregano – or about 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp Diamond kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 8 small-ish hamburger buns (brioche is what we often use)
  • mashed avocado with a squeeze of lime or lemon, tomatoes, red onions for toppings (optional)

Combine all of the ingredients (except buns and toppings) in a large bowl; use your hands to mix well.  Form into 8 patties.

Grill over a medium hot fire – about 4-6 minutes per side or until cooked through – or fry in a cast iron pan to which you’ve added about 1 T oil – on medium high heat for the same length of time.

We recommend making the whole recipe, even if you’re not feeding 8 folks.  The patties will warm up beautifully – and can even be cooked and then frozen for a later date. Recipe brought to you by and Andy and Ann.
