Amazing Turkey Bacon BBQ Burgers
They melt in your mouth. Seriously. Turkey Bacon BBQ Burgers are about the best burger on the whole planet. Lean turkey, mixed with chopped bacon, then grilled to perfection, all the while being basted with a sweet, tangy barbeque sauce. I even went the extra mile and topped them with big slices of sharp cheddar cheese for the perfect finish. The flavor in every bite of Turkey Bacon BBQ Burgers was extraordinary, hitting every happy taste bud on my tongue. Everything was held together with a fresh sesame seed bun, the perfect delivery system for the best burger I’ve ever had.
Making Turkey Bacon BBQ Burgers
Turkey Bacon BBQ Burgers are pretty darn easy to make. I started with ground turkey. I buy it for less than what I can get ground beef for, so it’s become a staple in our diet. Next, I took a few slices of my favorite bacon and cut them up into small pieces, then mixed it into the meat, along with some Montreal steak seasoning. Things were looking good. Then I made HUGE patties. I started with 3 pounds of turkey and ended with 6 big half-pound burgers. To cook them, I grilled them on medium, cooking one side until the tops of the burgers started to look cooked on the edges, then when I flipped them, I started basting them with barbecue sauce. A thick basting on each side and the perfect Turkey Bacon BBQ Burgers were done!
- 3 lbs ground turkey
- ½ lb bacon, cut into small pieces
- 2 T Montreal steak seasoning
- barbeque sauce
- In a large bowl, mix the ground turkey, bacon, and steak seasoning until well mixed.
- Form into patties.
- Heat grill to medium.
- Place the burgers on the grill and cook until the tops start to look cooked; flip.
- Baste with barbecue sauce.
- Grill until the burger is cooked through. Flip one more time and baste, allowing the barbecue sauce to caramelize for a few minutes.
- Remove and serve hot.
Toppings for Turkey Bacon BBQ Burgers
You can top your Turkey Bacon BBQ Burgers with anything your heart desires. I used a simple slice of sharp cheddar and a smear of mayonnaise. Fancy mayos would be tasty on this, such as a garlic mayo, but the choice is up to you. Try some extra barbecue sauce, or maybe a fancy ketchup and mustard. Slices of onion and pickles would be great too. Experiment and make the Turkey Bacon BBQ Burgers your very own.
