“Ranch” Turkey Burgers

I got to thinking about the ranch burgers I am always hearing about.  You know, mixing ranch salad dressing mix with your ground beef before making your burgers.  Since we eat a lot of turkey burgers, I decided the seasonings that go into my Homemade Ranch Dressing would be delicious in a turkey burger, and I was absolutely right!

“Ranch” Turkey Burgers

 

  • 1 1/4 lbs. Ground Turkey
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Dried Parsley
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Dried Chives
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Mix all ingredients and form into 5 patties.  Grill or pan fry in a little more olive oil until patties reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees.

This recipe calls for 1 1/4 lbs. ground turkey, because that is size package I had.  You could adjust the seasonings just slightly if you only have a 1 lb. package.

These were moist and delicious with a great ‘burger’ flavor.  I hope you enjoy them!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Brown chopped onion in olive oil.  Add ground turkey and season with salt and pepper, cooking until turkey is no longer pink.  Stir in tomato soup.  In 2 qt. greased casserole, layer 1 cup of cooked rice, half of ground turkey mixture and 1/4 cup cheese.  Repeat with remaining rice, turkey mixture and another 1/4 cup cheese.  Arrange green beans on top and sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Remove cover and continue baking for 10 minutes.

Note:  For additional flavor, cook rice in chicken or turkey stock, which makes a delicious side dish on its on.

I hope you enjoy this delicious casserole, the DH loved it!
