The Best Turkey Burger

One very important fact about the restaurant industry, is the fact that you absolutely need to keep consistent portion control. Ingredients are purchased in weight, count and volume. You will need to calculate the cost of all ingredients in a recipe. Total the costs and divide this by the food cost you want to charge for a menu item. This way you will have a price for your menu for this item.

The other day, I completely took a head long dive off the Niagara Falls in wrecking what little semblance I had to a decent diet. I went to an “unnamed” place and ordered a little, bitty sausage McMuffin with egg for breakfast. And for lunch, I went to an “unnamed” place and ordered a bacon deluxe single Tenz Momos.

Using a large mixing bowl you will add the ground beef or hamburger and the brown sugar. Mix well to combine thoroughly while using your hands to gently fold the brown sugar into the meat. Add the honey and mix thoroughly until well combined. Separate this mixture evenly into 8 portions. Shape these portions into balls while using your hands. Gently pat the ball so meat out into large burger patties. Make sure to make the center of the burger patties just a little thinner than the outside edges of the burgers. Doing so helps to reduce shrinkage of the meat while cooking the patties.

This portabella burger recipe is quick an easy to prepare. Won’t your friends be amazed that you didn’t just pick up a pack of pre-packaged, frozen veggie burgers. You actually took the time and effort to make them feel just as important as us meat lovers.

We will start with McDonald’s in our hamburger showdown. A typical burger from Mickey Dee’s weighs about 100g, has 9g of fat, 520g of salt and 31g of carbohydrates. It is made of 100% beef (or so they claim). In terms of preparation, they fry their Burger restaurant over a flat grill for that indoor home cooking taste. It comes with ketchup, mustard, pickle and onion and can be customized to fit your taste.

OChoose only the dishes that you want to highlight from the menu. These could be your specialties or food from your new recipes. Not that you feel that the other dishes are inferior but because you wouldn’t want to crowd the walls and windows with pictures.

Place the patties evenly over the cooking surface of the grill. This will allow each one to receive an equal amount of heat and cook at the desired rate.

Place your buns down on the opposite side to get warm and toasty. After the 6 or so minutes are up, go ahead and take everything off of the grill. I like the thin onion and green pepper on mine, but you can top with anything you’d like. I spread the sauce on like mayo instead of pouring it on; it likes to run off on your shirt.
