onion, finely chopped
minced fresh basil
light soy sauce
ground black pepper
whole wheat hamburger buns, split
We were split on this one; half of us loved it, the others thought it was only ok. Those that love garlic and basil will like these and they were a nice change of pace from the normal beef burger. The garlic was very strong in it and I wish I had used garlic powder instead of fresh. I only used 1 serving of egg beaters, mixed the rest per the recipe and refrigerated for 2 hrs prior to grilling. The burgers held their shape fine. Just a general tip, when mixing any type of burgers with add ins (like onions or liquids), refrigerate the mixture a few hours prior to shaping and cooking. This not only lets the flavors blend together, it also helps the burgers retain their shape.
After adding only 1/4 cup Eggbeaters (not 1/2 cup as specified in the recipe), the meat mixture was so wet that I was afraid it was going to fall through the grates on the grill and be impossible to flip. I ended up using a grill pan and cooking on top of the stove. On the positive side, these turkey burgers really do taste good, but honestly, I have to wonder if the egg substitute is even necessary.
I traded the horseradish for honey mustard and eliminated the garlic due to allergies. The egg does make very it very moist but I grilled them on foil. A second time I added 1/4 cup of Gluten free cornflake crumbs to firm the mix. I love this burger!
1/2 Cup of Eggbeaters was FAR too much! I would cut that in half, or do as we did and add grated parmesan to the meat mixture. We also used roasted red peppers instead of tomato, melted fresh mozzarella on the burgers, sliced fresh English cucumber for a little crunch, used fresh Arugula instead of boring plain lettuce and finished it off with aged balsalmic vinegar. TRULY AMAZING
