How To Make Broccoli Rabe Turkey Burgers
Filling and flavorful, these turkey burgers are filled with broccoli rabe sauteed with garlic and oil then tossed in a pinch of red pepper flakes.
Chop about ¾ cup’s worth of leaves and flowers only of the broccoli rabe into very small pieces and set aside for the burger.
Cut the remaining broccoli rabe into 2-inch pieces.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil then add the broccoli rabe.
Blanch for about 1½ to 2 minutes, drain well, and set aside in a colander.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the turkey, ¾ cup of chopped broccoli rabe, Romano cheese, garlic, salt and pepper, and red pepper flakes if using.
Form into 4 patties and refrigerate until ready to cook.
Heat a large, deep sauté pan to medium-high heat. When hot, add the olive oil and garlic then cook until golden for about 1 minute.
Add the broccoli rabe to the pan and toss with garlic and oil, season with ¼ teaspoon of salt and crushed red pepper. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through.
Cook the burgers on a hot skillet over medium-high heat for about 6 to 7 minutes on each side or until cooked through in the center.
To serve, place lettuce leaves on each plate, top with a tomato slice and cooked burger.
Finish with the cooked broccoli rabe and more grated cheese if desired.
