Kim's Turkey Chicken Burgers

Kim's Turkey Chicken Burgers
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Yeast-Free, Corn-Free, Peanut-Free, Soy-Free

When Summer is here, Barbequed hamburgers are a must. These turkey chicken burgers are very tasty and fit a diet free from gluten, dairy, yeast and red meat (yes, even the bun!). They cook well on the BBQ, and Joel's dinner rolls make excellent hamburger or hot dog buns. We make and freeze the burgers to keep them on hand, and frozen they are easier to BBQ. Kids love them too!

3/4 lb ground chicken
3/4 lb ground turkey

1 tsp garlic, finely chopped
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp dried mustard
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 egg
1/2 cup crushed rice crackers (not too fine)
Olive oil

In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken and turkey blending well. In large measuring cup or small bowl, combine the garlic, onion, mustard, sea salt, pepper, and egg. add this to the turkey and chicken mixture and blend in well.

Add in the crushed rice crackers to the mixture last to keep their crunchiness and work them in well.

Patties will puff up slightly in size, but shrink in diameter, so make palm-sized patties that are fairly thin. If you are freezing them, put waxed paper between the patties and store them in freezer bags.

To cook, lightly brush the patties with olive oil and BBQ over medium heat till the meat is cooked through.
