Turkey (and Beef) Burgers with Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

For Mother’s day we had the family over here for dinner. Based on what everyone had eaten all weekend long, we settled on burgers. I made both ground beef and ground turkey burgers for some variation, nine in total. I did go a little fancy with dessert and made Banana Pudding Squares. {Yum!}

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb 93/7 ground turkey
  • 1 lb 93/7 ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • Bread crumbs
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire
  • Two garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 medium-large red potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parmesan Cheese

Turkey Burgers:

In a medium bowl combine the ground turkey, 1 egg, Dijon mustard,  1 garlic clove and about 1/4 cup of bread crumbs. Using ONE HAND work the ground turkey and other ingredients together. If the consistency is still too wet, using your other hand, pour in more bread crumbs. Once you get a consistency that you can form burgers with, you can section out five burgers. Patty each burger and place on a plate.

Grill over medium-high heat until done!

Beef Burgers:

In a medium bowl combine the ground beef, 1 egg, 1 garlic clove, Worcestershire sauce and 1/4 cup of bread crumbs. Again, using ONE HAND work the ground beef and other ingredients together. Add bread crumbs using your clean hand, until the consistency is good. Section out four burgers, patty and put on a plate.

Grill over medium-high heat until done!

Parmesan Roasted Red Potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 425.

Prepare two baking sheets, lined with foil and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Cut the potatoes into cubes and place in a large bowl.

Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes then season with salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese. Using a large spoon mix the potatoes until coated. Repeat the seasoning process until you feel like the potatoes are adequately covered. {I did this about two more times.}

Roast the potatoes for 20 minutes, remove and stir the potatoes. Roast for another 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft and browning.

We had lettuce, tomato and onion for the burgers; plus the usual suspects: mustard, mayo, ketchup. We also had a Ceaser salad on the side for something green! All-in-all, there was nothing particularly special about this Mother’s Day meal. You could have this delish dish any night! 

Enjoy,

B.
