BBQ Series Part III: Spicy Diablo Turkey Burgers

Oh yeah…. can you just taste this or what!?
This is my Fire Blazing Spicy Diablo Turkey Burger!
Diablo sauce is usually found on pastas and is made with spicy red peppers, garlic, basil and oregano. This is a variation of the “Diablo” for a turkey burger {you can also use chicken if you prefer}.
Ingredients please:
1 1/4 pounds ground Turkey {or Chicken}
2 tsp dried basil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 roasted red bell peppers sliced (if you need directions on how to do this click here)
Start off with your ground turkey in a big mixing bowl.
Add the basil, garlic, red pepper flakes, and oregano. Mix with your hands till the ingredients are evenly distributed. Divide the mixture into 4 balls, and form into patties about 3/4 of an inch thick.
Here is a little tip on making the perfect burgers!
To prevent the burger from taking a dome shape when grilling, use your thumb or the back of a spoon to make a 1/2 inch indention in the middle of the patty.
Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
Now we are ready for the grill!
Make sure it’s pre-heated, scrubbed clean and ready to go!
You’ll want to cook these at medium-high heat for about 5-6 minutes on each side.
Pull your burgers off the grill and enjoy their beauty!
Notice the nice grill marks, how evenly cooked they are. The fragrant herbs so delicately visible…
Don’t stare at them too long! You’ll want to actually eat these things you know!
To assemble this guy I used those delicious whole grain sandwich flats, with a little bit of Olive Oil Mayo. Next I laid down a piece of green leaf lettuce, the burger, then topped with my roasted red bell peppers.
What a great burger with a nice kick of spicy-ness and herbs!

    I didn't forget about your package. I've actually had it done for quite a while but Spence's car stopped working and I haven't had a car to go to the post office. Look for it sometime within the next few days!
