Instructions

  • For the Burgers: brush each turkey burger with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook on a hot grill (450° to 550°) for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until dark grill marks are formed and it is cooked through out. Keep warm.
  • Remoulade: Whisk all ingredients together in a medium size bowl until combined and keep cool.
  • Israeli Salad: Whisk all ingredients together in a medium size bowl until combined and keep cool.
  • Fritter: Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl until completely combined and form 8 thin patties.
  • Fry the patties in a large saute pan in canola over medium heat until golden brown on each side, about 6-8 total minutes. Drain on a paper towel after.
  • To Serve: Spread some French remoulade on the bottom of a toasted brioche bun. Next, place on the grilled turkey burger and top off with arugula and some marinated feta. Then place on the fritter followed up by placing on some of the Israeli salad and finish with the kale microgreens and the top toasted brioche bun.
