Sour Cream and Chive Turkey Burgers

Sour Cream and Chive Turkey Burger

I may have a new favorite turkey burger…move aside any bland turkey burger you’ve ever had, and make room for this absolutely delicious, flavorful and moist Sour Cream & Chive Turkey Burger! I ended up making this burger twice in a week, the first time with Sharp White Cheddar and the second time with crumbled Feta, I actually liked it a little better with the Feta, but both are great because this burger is fantastic!

Total time
Serves: 4
  • 1.25 Ground Lean Turkey
  • ¼ cup Sour Cream, reduced fat

  • 1 Tbs Chives (sold as Freeze Dried Chives in spice isle)
  • 1 tsp each: salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • Dash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil for cooking
  • For the burger assembly:
  • 2-4 oz crumbled Feta cheese

  1. In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients and stir. Next add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Heat a pan with a dash of olive oil over medium high heat. With hands form four burger patties and put in the pan. Turn heat to high and cook each side about 8 minutes, or until turkey is done all the way through and there is no more pink visible.
  2. To assemble the burger cut burger bun in half, spread the chive aioli on the top bun, and lay a few leaves of spring lettuce on the bottom of the burger bun, place turkey burger on the lettuce, then sprinkle with crumbled Feta and enjoy!

    I am going to try this, but I will be calling it, “Chive Turkey!” as you should have, or Bob of “Bob’s Burgers” would have on his burger of the day board. If he would ever consider using turkey, which I doubt.

      OMG! That is too funny! I just started watching Bob’s Burger and love all the punny burger names. Wish I would have thought of that … insert awkward Tiny moan “ehhhhh” lol.

        Made these the other day, and we had the other two leftover tonight. The “Chive Turkey!” burgers were declared very tasty (white cheddar variant). That’s no jive! They’ll be added to the rotation, and we’ll try the feta version. Thanks! While turkeys won’t be displacing our burger meat of choice, their fellow North American native, the bison from our Colorado grill grate we think they can learn to coexist peacefully. Turns out Bob did have a “Don’t Give Me No Chive Burger (served with no chives)” on an episode.
