RECIPES0 comments

Doubling up on ingredients is always a good idea to get ahead on meal ideas for the week.  Enjoy this juicy, flavour packed turkey burger tonight and then tuck the meatballs in the fridge for lunch the next day. 


Makes 4 burgers and 14 meatball

2.2 lbs ground turkey

3 Tbsp grainy Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp dried tarragon leaves

1 tsp onion powder

1 egg

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

1/2 cup grated apple 

1 shallot minced

1 tsp salt

½ tsp freshly ground pepper

Optional garnishes: burger buns, apple slices, cheddar cheese, mustard, mayonnaise.



  1. Add the ground turkey, Dijon, tarragon, onion powder, egg, breadcrumbs, grated apple, shallot  salt and pepper to a large mixing bowl. Combine the ingredients thoroughly.
  2. Divide the mixture in half.  Form half the mixture into 4 equal burger sized patties and the other half into 14 small meatballs. Transfer the burger patties and meatballs to a container and store in the fridge for a minimum of 30min up to 24hr.
  3. Preheat the BBQ to 400°F
  4. Place the burgers and meatballs on the BBQ and cook, turning occasionally until they are fully cooked through (165°).  The meatballs will take roughly 8min and the burgers 15min.

Serve the burgers on toasted buns topped with apple slices, cheddar, mustard and mayonnaise.  

TIP: Store the meatballs in the fridge and serve on top of a power bowl, stuffed into a pita or as a snack eaten straight up.
