BBQ Turkey Burgers w/ Mushrooms

How was everyone's Christmas? Mine was great! It was our first holiday spent away from family in our hometown but we managed to keep with our traditions. I'm sad to see the excitement of the Christmas season go...the decorations, music, and all the magic the holiday brings. I am excited however, for a new year to begin and all the great new adventures that await!

Since the holidays, I have neglected my blog for a few days and was not able to get any posts out there....so this fabulous burger will make up for that! Now, I have never met a burger I didn't like, but this one is certainly up there on my top 10.

This burger is very moist, full of flavor, and a little messy. You will be ok as long as you don't set it down between bites...but c'mon, you won't want to set this one down!  ;)

BBQ Turkey Burgers w/ Mushrooms
serves 4

1 lb ground turkey
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 egg white
3/4 C diced onion
1/4 C water
4 oz sliced mushrooms
1/2 C bbq sauce, divided (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
4 slices sliced provolone
1 tomato, sliced
4 cheese-topped rolls, split

  Combine turkey, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, pepper, egg white and onions in a large bowl. Form into four patties.

Add 1 tbsp oil to large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add turkey burgers to pan, lower heat to medium. Brush tops of burgers with 1/8 C BBQ Sauce. Cook 4 min. Flip burgers, brush over with 1/8 C BBQ sauce. Cooking an additional 4 min.

To the skillet, add 1/4 C water and quickly cover with a lid, leaving a small open gap to allow some steam to escape. Reduce heat to low, cook another 4 min. Top with burgers with cheese slices; cover, cook 1 more minute until cheese melts. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, in small saute pan, add remaining 1 TBSP olive oil. Heat over med heat. Add mushrooms, cook until tender, stir in  1/4 C remaining BBQ sauce. Heat through, set aside.
