Notes

This recipe works best using lean ground turkey that is not 99-percent fat free.

Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1½ Cup chopped cremini mushrooms
  • ½ Teaspoon minced garlic
  • ¾ Pound lean ground turkey
  • ¼ Cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ
  • 3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • ⅛ Teaspoon black pepper
  • Buns, sliced tomatoes, lettuce, and pickles, for serving

Directions

In medium skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add the mushrooms and garlic, and sauté until the mushrooms are soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, mix together the turkey, wheat germ, mustard, cheese, black pepper, and cooked mushrooms. Form into 4 patties or 8 sliders. Grill on the barbecue or in a preheated grill pan until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and serve immediately with all the fixings: buns, sliced tomatoes, lettuce and pickles.

Mushroom Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Mushroom Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
