Recipe: Mozzarella Turkey Burgers

It's been a while since I posted a recipe. Mostly because the ones I've been trying lately haven't been stellar. Here's one to try, and to keep.

Mozzarella Turkey Burgers from Eating Well
The burgers are easy to prep. Just mix the ingredients together and form patties. It's actually two patties stacked together with a bunch of Mozzarella in the middle. Yum.
And the marinara sauce was incredibly easy to make! You pretty much chop up and cook onions and garlic in olive oil, add in a can of tomatoes in their juices and some sun-dried tomatoes, top of with salt, pepper and basil and let it simmer. Easy peasy! Made the whole house smell wonderful. I pulsed mine through the food processor when it was done because I was too lazy to dice the tomatoes. This gave me a very nice textured sauce in less time.

The recipe calls to serve them with Focaccia bread, but I couldn't find any so we went with Ciabatta. Equally delicious. Hans was skeptical when I told him about it, but ended up loving it. And if Hans likes it, you will, too.

The thing about taking food to work is that you never get a picture of the whole thing assembled. So I'm cheating and using Eating Well's.


  1. I'm loving your blog :)

    I was happy to see a ground turkey recipe! William and I bought a pound ages ago, and it's been in our freezer ever since.

    The recipe was very filling :) I liked the foccacia and turkey combination - I actually ended up slicing the bread to make a "turkey burger" of sorts. Delicious!

    Sadly, I had no fresh basil (just dry) and no sun dried tomatoes. I halved the amount of basil and threw it into the pot while everything was cooking. That was a mistake. The marinara was quite bland. We attempted to salvage it by adding sugar and red wine vinegar, but it was still missing something. I'll have to try this again with the correct ingredients.

    Thank you for sharing!
