Pesto Turkey Burgers

Pesto Turkey Burgers

with Melty Mozzarella and Lemony Roasted Carrots on the Side

Read more

Pest-oh my gosh! Did our chefs just put pesto in a burger? They did, and it’s about as delicious as you’d expect. There’s herby, Italian-style basil flavor woven throughout these turkey patties and mixed into the mayo too. Add in a heap of melted cheese, a few slices of fresh tomato, and some zesty carrots on the side and you’ve got the very definition of fun in a bun.

1

Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel carrots, then cut diagonally into ½-inch-thick slices. Toss on a baking sheet with 2 TBSP olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in oven until tender, 15-20 minutes.

2

Mix together turkey, 2 TBSP pesto (we’ll use the rest later), and a large pinch of salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Shape into four 4-inch-wide patties. Heat 1 TBSP butter and 1 TBSP olive oil in a large pan. Once butter is melted, add patties and cook until nicely browned on bottom, about 6 minutes.

3

Once patties are browned on bottom, flip and cook on other side for 3 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella evenly over top of each, then cover pan and continue cooking until cheese is melted and burgers are cooked through, 2-3 minutes more. TIP: If your pan doesn’t have a lid, use aluminum foil to cover it.

4

Place mayonnaise and remaining pesto in a small bowl and stir to combine.

5

Zest lemon until you have 2 tsp zest. Once carrots are done roasting, place in another medium bowl along with lemon zest, a squeeze or two of lemon, and pepper to taste. Toss to coat carrots.

6

Split buns in half and place cutside down on baking sheet used for carrots. Place in oven and allow to warm through, about 2 minutes. Meanwhile, slice tomatoes into rounds. Spread as much pesto mayo as you like on the cut side of the bun bottoms, then top each with a turkey patty, tomato rounds, and bun top. Serve with carrots on the side.
