"I'm not a big fan of turkey burgers, but finding ground turkey on sale and some on-hand ingredients inspired this recipe. Most of the ingredients can be substituted or exchanged based on taste. Don't let the few ingredients in the burger itself fool you....it's got lots of flavor for a turkey burger. Feel free to add 8 oz. or more sliced mushrooms to the onions when cooking, if you happen to be a mushroom lover. This is great with sweet potato fries and/or a spinach salad. Serve with additional thousand island dressing for dipping."

  1. Combine ground turkey, garlic, thousand island dressing, and 1/2 cup Italian-style bread crumbs in a bowl. Do not overwork the mixture. Form into 4 patties; transfer to plate. Sprinkle with garlic salt and additional 1/4 cup bread crumbs; press crumbs into patties to adhere.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties in oil until golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes per side. Transfer to plate; top each patty with a slice of mozzarella cheese.
  3. Cook and stir onion rings in same skillet until tender, about 10 minutes, adding oil if necessary. Sprinkle with ground black pepper.
  4. Heat a non-stick griddle to medium heat. Lightly butter bread slices on both sides; cook on each side until browned, about 2 minutes per side.
  5. To assemble burgers, layer turkey and cheese patties, sauerkraut, and cooked onions between bread slices.

The idea is right, but it needs a bit of work to be a 5 star recipe. As a complete sandwich, the flavor is pretty good, but the meat by itself is so bland. I did not taste a bit of dressing, a...

This recipe was the greatest. My family loved it so much that we had it two nights in a row. Thanks for the winning recipe. WoW!!!!!!

Very good! The burger was moist, very mild but liked it with the toppings. We ate without the bread and was still exceptional. Used swiss instead of Mozz as personal preference.

Quick recipe to get together and very tasty! The burgers themselves didn't have a strong flavor profile, but, they were very moist and worked very well with the sauerkraut. The only thing I d...

This wash nice change of pace for something a little different. My family thought the turkey was a little bland, so we're going to try ground beef next time.
