Broccoli Rabe Turkey Burgers
These Broccoli Rabe Turkey Burgers are deliciously flavorful – I skipped the bun, served them over lettuce and topped with sauteed broccoli rabe – a perfect quick weeknight meal!
For the broccoli rabe:
(about 20 oz broccoli rabe, washed, stems trimmed off)
crushed red pepper flakes
For the patties:
93% lean ground turkey
freshly grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
fresh black pepper
red pepper flakes
For the burger:
large lettuce leaves
Chop about 3/4 cups worth of leaves and flowers only of the broccoli rabe into very small pieces and set aside for the burger.
Cut the remaining broccoli rabe into 2-inch pieces.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil, then add the broccoli rabe.
Blanch for about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes, drain well and set aside in a colander.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the turkey, 3/4 cup chopped broccoli rabe, Romano cheese, garlic, salt and pepper (red pepper flakes too if using).
Form into 4 patties and refrigerate until ready to cook.
Heat a large, deep sauté pan to medium-high heat, when hot add the olive oil and garlic and cook until golden about 1 minute, careful not to burn.
Add the broccoli rabe to the pan and toss with garlic and oil, season with 1/4 tsp salt and crushed red pepper; cook about 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through.
While that is cooking, cook the burgers on a hot skillet over medium-high heat for about 6 to 7 minutes on each side, or until cooked through in the center.
To serve place a lettuce leave on each plate, top tomato slice and cooked burger.
Finish with the cooked broccoli rabe and optional more grated cheese if desired.
