(dairy free/soy free/egg free/nut free/low fat/beef free/pork free/seafood free)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small-medium carrot, finely chopped
1 handful frozen southern seasoning mix (onion, red and green peppers, celery, parsley) OR 1/3 cup finely chopped celery and 1/4 cup finely chopped onion and a little parsely
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or 1/4-1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 ½ lbs ground turkey or chicken
1 tablespoon dried dill or 2 tablespoons fresh dill
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning (read your label, just to be safe)
2 tablespoons Enjoy Life soy free buttery spread (or more if you like more sauce)
¼ cup hot pepper sauce (or more if you like a lot of sauce) (I use Frank's Red Hot)
Dill pickle relish
Allergy friendly bread or buns of your choice
salt and pepper
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the veggies and season with a little salt and pepper and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool. Mix the turkey, dill, and poultry seasoning into the vegetable mix.
Form into 4 patties (not too thick because a medium rare poultry burger isn't a good thing).
In the same skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. If the heat is med/high heat the burgers will burn.
Add the patties and cook, turning once, until firm - about 12 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Add the "butter" to the skillet to melt, then stir in the hot sauce. I like mine extra saucy, so sometimes I add a little extra hot sauce. Put the patties in the sauce, turning them to coat.
Place patties on bread or serve alone.
Top with some pickle relish. IF you can have dairy, these would be great with blue cheese or ranch dressing and possibly a white cheese such as Dill Havarti or Fontina.
