Sausage and Broccoli Rabe Burgers


    • 1 lb of Ground Turkey

    • 1 lb of Spicy Pork Sausage, casings removed

    • 1 Tbsp of Salt Free Steak Seasoning

    • Salt, to taste

For the Broccoli Rabe:

  • 1 Bunch of Broccoli Rabe, washed, trimmed and chopped into small pieces

  • 3 Cloves of Garlic, minced

  • 2 Tbsp of Olive Oil

  • Pinch of Hot Pepper Flakes

  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

  • 6 Slices of Sharp Provolone

  • 6 Kaiser Rolls or Burger Buns


    • 1) Add the oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat, until the garlic becomes fragrant, add the hot pepper flakes and let them cook with the garlic for about 15 seconds.

    • 2) Add the broccoli rabe, stir it in the hot oil until they wilt, add about ½ cup of water, partially cover the skillet with a lid and let them cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until they are pretty much fully cooked.

    • 3) Remove the lid from the skillet, season the broccoli rabe with a little salt and pepper, turn the heat up to high and cook them uncovered long enough to cook out any liquid.

    • 4) Remove the broccoli rabe on to a place and set aside.

    • 5) In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey with the sausage, steak seasoning and salt.

    • 6) Form 6 patties out of the mixture making sure to make the center a little thinner than the edges.

    • 7) Heat your grill between medium low and medium heat (close the for 10 minutes after you turn it on).

    • 8) Place your burgers on the grill, close the lid and allow them to cook for about 6 or 7 minutes on each side or until the burgers are fully cooked through.

    • 9) When the burgers are about 2 minutes away from being fully cooked, top them with some of the broccoli rabe and a slice of cheese on top of the whole thing. Close the lid on the grill and let the cheese melt.

    10) Serve them on grilled kaiser rolls for a really amazing burger!
