It certainly felt like summer earlier on this week, the warmer temperatures and humidity making the barbecue a fine option. These Maple Mustard Turkey Burgers also offered up a good use for both the leftover turkey and the grill.

If you’re not one to turn leftovers into ground turkey, you can certainly find the bird pre-ground for just this purpose.

For a local flavour, some maple syrup to go with the mustard to form a glaze adds some extra flavour to these easy-to-make tasty burgers.

Maple Mustard Turkey Burgers

  • 1-1/2 lb ground turkey
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 3 Tbsp. prepared mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. minced rosemary leaves
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. local maple syrup
  • 6 sesame seed burger buns
  • 6 Tbsp. grainy mustard
  • 1-1/2 cups torn lettuce leaves
  • 2 greenhouse or field tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced

In large bowl, combine turkey, egg, oats, 1 Tbsp. of mustard, salt, rosemary, and pepper. Shape into 6 burgers.

In small bowl, stir together maple syrup and remaining 2 Tbsp. of mustard.

Place burgers on greased grill over medium heat. Grill, covered, for 5 to 6 minutes. Turn burgers over; brush with maple mixture. Grill, covered until thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each burger reads 165°F (74°C), about 5 to 6 minutes.

Toast buns on grill. Spread each bun bottom with grainy mustard. Top with lettuce, burger, tomato, onion and bun top.
