I’m super sorry to bring back another old recipe, but I’m just feeling nostalgic for all of my old foods that don’t show up around here anymore, you know?
Anyway. Burgers! I’m loving them right now but also try not to eat them all the time because what’s the POINT of a burger without fries and a bun and also pregnancy weight, and just you know. Better to get the salad, usually.
But these turkey burgers with arugula and goat cheese. They’re heavily seasoned, which I think is the key to a good turkey burger, and the cheese and arugula give us TEXTURE for days. They’re easy but not quiiiite as classic as the smashburgers from a few weeks ago, you know? Still a little fancy-feeling.
Make them. Here’s the original post. Enjoy!
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 3 ounces softened goat cheese
- 1 1/2 cups arugula
- salt and pepper, if desired
- 3 hamburger buns, toasted
- Preheat a large skillet to medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Gently combine the turkey with the seasoned salt, onion powder, and garlic powder. Form the meat mixture into 3 even patties.
- Add the burgers to the hot skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, turning once, until the burgers are golden on the outside and just cooked through on the inside.
- To assemble, place 1/2 cup arugula on the bottom half of the hamburger bun. Top the arugula with a cooked burger. Spread 1 ounce softened goat cheese on the burger top and sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired. Eat!
