Adapted from: https://www.mantitlement.com/next-level-turkey-burgers-with-caramelized-onions-and-aioli/

Ingredients

For The Turkey Burgers:

  • 1 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 heaping tablespoons grated onion, with juice
  • 1-2 Tbsp. high-heat oil

Garlic Aioli:

Caramelized Onions

  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, peeled and sliced thin
  • ¾ teaspoons kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Start the caramelized onions by adding the butter and oil to a large skillet over medium low heat. Once the butter is melted add the onions and stir to coat in the butter and oil.
  2. Season the onions with the salt and pepper and cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally so that the onions don’t burn. The onions are done when they are golden brown and caramelized. Add the onions to a bowl until ready to use.
  3. While the onions are cooking, you can make the aioli by adding all the ingredients to a small bowl and stirring to combine. Let the aioli sit until you’re ready to add it to the turkey burgers.
  4. Mix the ingredients together for the turkey burgers and divide into 3 large or 4 smaller patties. Heat oil in a large skillet (cast iron is great) and cook the turkey burgers over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side, or until the turkey is no longer pink inside. (Burgers can also be grilled until they reach an internal temperature of 165).
  5. Serve the burgers by adding a patty to each bun, topping with the garlic aioli and then with some caramelized onions. Can also add some grilled or pan-fried BioBurger cheese for a little something extra, if desired.
