A note about serious food allergies

Turkey burgers are nothing new these days, but we're willing to bet you haven't had one quite like ours. Usually, turkey burger simply means “flavorless burger,” but we give this lean patty a serious umami infusion with miso paste, and a tender texture thanks to fresh ricotta cheese. Top it off with caramelized red onions and a soft pretzel bun, and you've got a burger that's leaner, meaner, and tastier than all the others. Tip: Having trouble cutting that wobbly sweet potato? Trim off a thin slice along its length. Turn sweet potato onto its flat side. You now have a flat base to work from.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 Baking Sheets
  • 1 Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Roast the Sweet Potato Cottage Fries

    Cut sweet potato into ¼" rounds. Toss sweet potato rounds with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper on one prepared baking sheet. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes. Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven,15 minutes. Carefully, flip rounds and roast again until tender, 8-10 minutes. While sweet potato roasts, prepare onion.

  • 2

    Prepare the Onion

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.

  • 3

    Form the Burgers

    Combine turkey, ricotta, panko, miso, Worcestershire sauce, and ¼ tsp. pepper in a mixing bowl. Form mixture into two patties, about 4" in diameter. Make a small ½" indentation in the middle of patties to keep burger flat during cooking. If mixture is too moist to hold together, use plastic wrap to shape patties.

    Cook the Burgers

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and patties to hot pan and sear until brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer burgers to second prepared baking sheet and roast in hot oven until burgers reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While burgers roast, caramelize onions.

    Caramelize Onion and Toast Buns

    Return pan used to sear burgers to medium-low heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and onion to hot pan. Stir occasionally until onion is lightly caramelized, 15-20 minutes. While onion caramelizes, place buns directly on oven rack and toast in hot oven until golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, spreading BBQ sauce on bottom bun and topping with burger, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, and top bun. Bon appétit!
