I’d never refer to “My Favorite ” anything unless it’s the truth (although you’d never hear me tell anyone about My Favorite Child or My Favorite Friend, even if it were the truth).
But this is truly my favorite turkey burger recipe. I have another great turkey burger recipe that incorporates olives, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh mozzarella into the grinds, but this burger wins for most healthful — it incorporates grains and greens into the grinds and holds its shape.
I went into great detail extolling the virtues of this burger, blogging about it last year. Today’s recipe is the same, but I used a different bun. I couldn’t resist. It was a Paesano-style bun that was still warm in the case at Hiller’s.
The burgers come together quickly, despite the long list of ingredients, many of which are optional. The bread was delicious but perhaps too hefty for a burger. My husband thinks stuffing the burger into a pita pocket or serving it all alone would be another great option.
This recipe is adapted from Mark Bittman’s Meat-and-Grain Burgers recipe found in the June 2010 issue of Runner’s World magazine.

Taste buds prickle; wanderlust triggered. An Argentine barbecue (asado)
enticed me to Patagonia. A friend gave me a vial of ground sumac berries--4 months later I was
waking at dawn to the "Call To Prayer" in Turkey. Porcini to Tuscany, and so on. Read more about my chronicles of
