Turkey burger

  1. Combine the ground meat with mayonnaise, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Divide the meat mixture into balls — roughly 4 oz (110 g) each. Flatten and shape them into burgers with wet hands. The thinner they are, the faster they will cook.
  3. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the butter.
  4. When the pan is hot, place the burgers in the pan.
  5. Fry for about 5 minutes on each side until they are cooked through and have a nice brown crust. There are two burgers per serving.
  6. Aioli

  7. Add the mayonnaise, garlic, and lemon juice to a bowl and stir until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve right away, or set aside while preparing the rest of your meal to let the flavors develop further. If you're making this in advance, refrigerate until ready to serve.
  9. Salad

  10. Prepare the vegetables and add them to a bowl.
  11. Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and season to taste. Toss together and serve.

Tips

When the chicken is almost cooked, add some heavy cream and more seasoning to the skillet to make a quick, delicious sauce.

Spice it up! Try using oregano, garlic, and rosemary for a Greek twist; Tex-Mex spices if you like it hot; or tarragon and herbes de Provence for a French flair.
