Turkey Burgers with Rosemary "Aioli"

Lauren Perkins-Boyd


Ok so I say "Aioli" because it's a fake out really, just store bought mayo jazzed up a bit, for ease. Also, you can use any herbs you like instead of rosemary if you wish like oregano, basil or parsley would be great.

Ground turkey doesn't have much flavor, but the rosemary adds a woodsy flavor to the burger. I love the creaminess of the aioli. Again, you taste fresh rosemary, but it's not overpowering. There's a bit of zing from the vinegar. Topped with tomato, pickles, and onion, this is one tasty turkey burger. The Test Kitchen
