Turkey Rosemary Burgers with Black Bean & Corn Salad

These burgers are so delicious and juicy.  I don't typically make turkey burgers, but with the very few ingredients it takes to make these I was intrigued...especially by the fish sauce.  I found this recipe on a blog I follow called WhiteonRiceCouple.  Their pictures are so inspiring and beautiful.  The burgers did not disappoint, so delicious.  I added chopped jalapeno to the mixture, but you can omit if you don't want added spice.  The salad is a perfect, quick summer salad that usually leaves you with leftovers for the next day.

Turkey Rosemary Burgers

  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 2 Tbl. finely chopped fresh Rosemary
  • 3 Tbl. fish sauce
  • 2 tspns. sugar
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • Hamburger buns and favorite toppings for serving
-In a medium bowl combine turkey, rosemary, fish sauce, sugar, jalapeno and black pepper.  Form into patties. Heat grill or pan over medium high heat.  Cook each side for 4 minutes or until cooked through.  Open and brush both sides of the hamburger buns with olive oil.  Place face side down on the grill and cook until lightly browned.  Assemble burgers with toppings and serve immediately.
