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 tangy, creamy 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.
Cut sweet potato into ¼" slices. Place rounds in a single layer on one prepared baking sheet, drizzle with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, and season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Roast 15 minutes, remove from oven, and flip potatoes. Roast until tender and deep golden, 8-10 minutes. While sweet potatoes roast, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips. Halve pretzel buns.
Form the Burgers
Combine turkey, miso, ricotta, Worcestershire sauce, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Form mixture into two patties, roughly 4" in diameter. If mixture is too moist to hold together, use plastic wrap to shape discs. Make a small ½" indentation in middle of patty to keep burger flat during cooking.
Sear the Burgers
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil and patties to hot pan and sear until brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer burgers to second prepared baking sheet and cook until burgers reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 9-11 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While burgers cook, cook onions.
Cook Onions and Toast Buns
Return pan used to sear burgers to medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, ½ tsp. salt, and onions to hot pan. Cook covered, stirring occasionally, 6 minutes. Add 2 Tbsp. water, stir, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and brown, 3-5 minutes. Toast buns directly on oven rack until golden brown, 2-3 minutes.
Plate the Dish
Spread BBQ sauce on bottom bun and top with burger, cheddar cheese, onions, and top bun. Serve sweet potato cottage fries on side.
