“Instead of having the same old hamburgers, try this great Italian burger loaded with fresh herbs, & garlic. What really gives it that great flavor is the crispy Salami and Mozzarella - fabulous, Mangia!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the ground turkey and the first 9 ingredients well - then, divide evenly and shape into burger patties, cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
  2. Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil, or - place a silpat on a cookie sheet & preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place the salami slices evenly (but not touching) on the covered cookie sheet. Bake salami in the 325 degree oven for 15 minutes - then, transfer salami slices to a plate covered with paper towels to absorb the excess oils.
  3. Grill burgers either on a hot outdoor grill, or cast iron stove top grill - approximately 5 minutes per side for medium rare - longer for well done (whatever your preference may be). Slice the Italian bread or Ciabatta into even slices - enough for 2 slices per patty & brush or use your 'misto' sprayer on one side with E.V.O.O. (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)& grill (oil side down) to get the grill prints on the bread. Once Burgers are cooked, remove to a platter where they can rest for approximately 5 minutes. Remove grilled Bread and place 1/4 cup of the shredded light Mozzarella cheese, then the Burger, then the Salami (2 slices per burger). You can then serve the burgers with either a very good prepared Marinara Pasta Sauce or your favorite condiment.
