Turkey Burgers & Sweet Potato Fries

Serves 4 to 8, depending on the size of your patties.

  • 1 package ground turkey, about 2 lbs
  • Half of a medium onion, diced
  • 2 or 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Paprika (I recommend a tsp), Adobo (1/2 tsp), Poultry seasoning (1/2 tsp), salt, and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup sherry
  • olive oil
  • 1 avocado,  sliced
  • Deli sandwich rolls
  • Ranch dressing
  • Monterey Jack, sliced or shredded
  • 2 large sweet potatoes

Cut the sweet potatoes into fries, put in freezer.
Sautee the onion and garlic in a large skillet with olive oil and paprika, add water if you want, and cook until softened.  Remove from heat and separate the onion/garlic from the oil as much as possible.
In a medium bowl, mix the turkey and onion/garlic until well blended, adding salt, pepper, adobo, and paprika. Form into patties, making a little crater with your thumb in the middle -- this helps them stay flat when you cook them.
Heat skillet to medium-high and add sherry, plus a little more olive oil if needed.  When it's good and hot, put the patties in.  Turn the heat down to Low after about 2 minutes and cover.
Start frying your sweet potatoes now, or they won't be done in time for the burgers!  I generally just throw them in my deep fryer til they look brown on the edges.  As the batches are finished frying, lay out on paper towels on a cookie sheet or plate and sprinkle with paprika, salt, and pepper.
Cook the burgers until golden and a little crispy on the edges, flipping as often as you please.  Add cheese, turn off the burner, cover the pan again, and toast your rolls. 

On the bun: Avocado, Burger & Cheese, Ranch.
