Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Turkey Burgers

We made these burgers for the 4th of July and loved the flavor. Seriously the best turkey burger....ever.

This is not a burger, it's beer

Burgers on the "Jo-Fo"

The burgers form super soft and very hard to grill. Oil your grill well. I made a second batch and added an egg and doubled the bread crumbs but that didn't help much - just made them taste a bit "bready". We cooked the second batch on the "Jo-Fo" (George Foreman Grill) and it worked much better - we got perfect burgers.


Sierra Nevada Turkey Burgers

1/2 cup Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

1 pound ground turkey

1 tablespoon Sierra Nevada Pale Ale mustard (or your favorite Dijon mustard)

1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped

1/2 cup bread crumbs

Dash of Worcestershire sauce

Salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Cover the mixture and place in your refrigerator for at least 2 hours, overnight at the longest. When it’s party time, pre-heat your grill to medium heat. Form the turkey meat into patties (the size is up to you).   Place the patties on the hot grill and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, until cooked through (165 degrees). Place on a toasted bun and top with your favorite burger fixings! Might we recommend arugula, red onion, avocado, and cheddar cheese?
