Miriam’s Lovely Tip For Super Moist Ground Turkey

This months Food Network magazine has a recipe for Turkey Hummus Sliders. It sounded so go, we just had to make it. It even had a dressing with questionable ingredients like Feta (which neither my wife or I like) and it was fantastic. The core of the recipe focused on Hummus, both in the dressing and slider patties. We were amazed at the taste and moistness of the patties even for someone who normally overcooks turkey into cardboard like concoctions.

You could use this technique for turkey sliders, burgers, meatballs etc. We bought lean ground turkey for this recipe. As mentioned in a previous post, ground turkey can have a very high fat content. Check the label.
