Turkish Lamb Pita Burger

Heavy on exotic spices, this decadent sandwich is a great way to familiarize yourself with the joys of Turkish cooking. Lean turkey blended with lamb lightens the mix. Stuff the patties into warm pita bread or roll the mixture into meatballs and serve with the yogurt sauce on the side.

Smoky Buffalo Burger

Here we flavor sweet, beefy buffalo (bison) with smoked cheese and smoky barbecue. Instead of melted on top, cheese is used here to season the meat, adding moisture and smoky flavor inside the burger.

Cranberry & Herb Turkey Burger

Our usual problem with turkey burgers is the dry, chewy texture of the cooked meat. The usual solution is to add fat, but a little sautéed onion, dried cranberries and soaked couscous work even better without larding down this healthy main course.
