30 Minute Dinner: Romano Turkey Burgers

These 30 Minute Dinner Romano Turkey Burgers are a hit with everyone! Plus they're quick and easy to make, perfect for those evenings when time is short and you didn't have plans!

Over the years I’ve learned to start dinner early in the day in order to avoid the stress of cooking with hungry (or cranky) kids around at the 5 o’ clock hour. However, I don’t always manage to do so; on those nights it’s nice to prepare something quick and easy.

These Romano Turkey burgers fit the bill perfectly. I do cut a few corners in order to make them fast, such as buying Romano cheese already shredded and purchasing hamburger buns! Yes, I prefer to make my own, but some days I just can’t.

Follow the instructions in order to make these burgers the quickest way possible.

Romano Turkey Burgers
Recipe type: Main Course
Serves: 8
For burgers:
  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 cup Romano cheese, grated
  • ⅔ cup onion, minced
  • garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 hamburger buns (Store bought or prepared earlier are both fine - try these homemade hamburger buns when you have more time.).
Optional extra:
  • Take these burgers to the next level by adding sautéed mushrooms and onions; it adds a lot of flavor.
  1. If preparing the optional extra veggies, warm some coconut oil or butter in a pan over low heat.
  2. Chop onions and mushrooms roughly and add to warm pan. Turn heat to medium, stir and allow to cook while you prepare the burgers.
  3. In a bowl, mix all burger ingredients together (except buns).
  4. Shape into eight patties.
  5. Place patties on a broiler pan and broil for 5 minutes, turn and broil for another 5 minutes or so until patties are no longer pink in the middle.
  6. Continue to stir the veggies every now and again while the patties cook.
  7. While the patties cool a little, spread buns with mayo and mustard (or whatever fixings you enjoy on burgers).

Easy sides

Any of the following would be well suited as a side dish to these Romano Turkey burgers:

  • Veggie tray – make a quick veggie tray with carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes
  • A serving of sauerkraut (Bubbie’s is an excellent brand) and a few vegetables
  • Salad
  • Cook frozen vegetables of your choice (such as: broccoli, green beans, corn, mixed veggies), toss in butter, then sprinkle with salt and pepper

You might also consider forgoing the buns and serving the turkey burgers in a lettuce leaf or as a side to a large dinner salad.

  1. The last weeks worth of posts haven’t been showing up in my blog reader (Google Reader). Is anyone else having this problem?

  2. That looks good! We loves us our turkey burgers! Here is one I use:

    1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey
    1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs or oatmeal
    2 Tbsp each: finely chopped mushrooms and green onions including part of the tops (optional)
    2 cloves minced garlic
    1 egg
    1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
    2 1/2 Tbsp coconut aminos (soy sauce alternative)

    Mix all ingredients, divide into 6 patties, cook, enjoy, etc.
