Italian Grilled Burgers

I love grilling, especially delicious burgers. Nothing is better than a grilled burger and a cold beer on a hot summer day. Well today I had some extra lean ground turkey breast on hand and wanted to jazz it up a bit. So I came up with the Italian Grilled Burger…can be used with gr. beef or turkey!
I am also submitting this to Joelen’s Bunday Burgers weekly blog event where she features a ton of great burger recipes. Check out her blog for the delicious round up each week!



Ingredients: Makes 2-4 burgers depending on thickness and size
1 lbs extra lean gr beef or gr turkey breast
1/2-1 green pepper finely diced
1/4-1/2 a yellow onion finely diced
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
mozzarella cheese slices
lettuce and tomato slices
other toppings of choice
salt and pepper for taste

Mix all ingredients together and let sit in fridge for an hour to let the flavors meld. Once ready, heat grill to medium heat and oil the grates so the lean meat wont stick. Once warm, add 1/4 or 1/2 lbs burgers and grilled to satisfied doneness on each side. While grilling, warm hamburger buns on grill to toast just a bit. Top burger with lettuce, tomato,  mozzarella cheese, and dressings of choice.
Serve immediately with garlic grilled fries!

    Wow…those look yummy! I’m making turkey burgers later this week and if my basil plant is still living (stupid drought), I may totally have to make these! Thanks!
