There is nothing like a juicy burger hot off the grill, chilled cocktail in hand, and warm weather to cure those winter blues.  I want to share some of my favorite chicken/turkey burger recipes with you now that it’s starting to feel like summer!  These are all a nice break from typical hamburgers and healthier for you (well, maybe not once you add all the toppings).  I think they are very flavorful, simple to make, and delicious to eat. 

The first recipe I want to share is for Buffalo Chicken Burgers.  These are ¼ pound burgers that taste just like buffalo wings but without the mess.  Who wouldn’t want that?  I like to top my burger with extra buffalo sauce and a little ranch dressing, then add a small amount of each onto my plate for extra dipping sauce.  This burger would also pair well with blue cheese.

The second recipe is for Chicken Ranch Burgers.  I have a slight addiction to Ranch Dressing, so these burgers really satisfy that craving!  These burgers are savory and as juicy as a beef burger, while being a delicious alternative.  I recommend melting a slice of provolone or Swiss cheese on top of the patty, then drizzling with more ranch.  If you want to go all out, add a few strips of bacon, yum!

The third recipe is for Pesto Arugula Turkey Burgers.  These are my new obsession!  Topped with pesto, crisp arugula, and melted cheese – these burgers taste incredibly fresh!  The combination of flavors will make your mouth happy 😊

The forth and final recipe I have for you is Spicy Thai Peanut Burgers.  This is basically ground chicken, mixed with peanut sauce, and topped with more peanut sauce.  You get Asian flavor in a juicy burger.  I like to top my burger with a drizzle of peanut sauce, but you could jazz up the burger by adding melted cheese or some zesty coleslaw.

All of these recipes can be made using either ground chicken or ground turkey.  I personally like the recipes how they are written but it’s really about personal preference and making them your own, so have fun experimenting and adding your own flare with different toppings!  You can even toast your buns before assembling the burgers for a little crunch and texture. 

Happy cooking!
