Turkey is delicious.

1 tablespoon snipped fresh dill
1 1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pound lean ground turkey
4 Kaiser rolls, split
4 lettuce leaves
4 tomato slices

In a large bowl, combine the onion, yogurt, dill, hot pepper sauce, salt and garlic. Crumble turkey over mixture; mix well.
Shape into four patties, each about 3/4 in. thick. Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Serve on rolls with lettuce and tomato.

Is there a specific hot pepper sauce?

Tabasco Red Sauce is what I use. Nothing else crosses my mind.

I mean, you don't have to use that sauce. You can try whatever variety/style/brand you want to.

I've never cooked with yogurt before. What dose that do? Or is just for flavor?
The turkey is lean. When it is grounded down and then mashed into burger patties, it easily falls apart. The plain yogurt acts as a glue to hold the patty together.

It also supplies a contrast of taste with the dill seasoning.

It's good... try it!

Tabasco is the cornerstone of any nutritious meal.

I especially love it on eggs and in my grits.

Yeah... it's not too bad.

Of the weaker hot sauces, I like Frank's Red Hot. I love it especially on my greens: collards and turnips, black eyed peas, crowder peas, and chicken livers.

Goooood!

I'm definitely trying that next time I decide to cook (fridge full of leftovers). I LOVE ground turkey and buy ground beef once every six months, if that. I got a nifty make your own hotsauce kit for Xmas this year. I'll make some to go with these delicious burgers.

I'll make this tomorrow. The only thing I will change is add 2 or 3 jalapenos.

Nobody but me is into the spicy crap at my house but I love ground turkey too. My wife can make a kick ass spaghetti sauce but I of course have to spice my own plate up.


Has anybody seen the Tims Cabainro chips? The halipino chips are fantastic but these Cabainro's are an awesome change!

That's it...

I'm moving you, Emkay, and Ali down here and into my house.

Oh yeah... I always up the ante on the hot sauce and jalapenos.

Ain't tasty until it's clearing my sinuses.
