Turkish~ish Burgers

This one is a keeper~ an amazing combination of flavours and an effort that you won't mind making... because you are going to love eating!

Turkish~ish Burgers

1 large Red Onion, Diced and Divided
1 bunch Fresh Cilantro, Minced and Divided
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic, Divided
1 can Diced Tomatoes
1 lb Hamburger
1 lb Mild Italian Sausage, Casings removed
1 Tbsp Seasoned Salt
1 Tbsp Hot Curry Powder
2 Slices of White Bread, cubed
1 Large Egg
1 Large Container Plain Balkan Yogurt
4 Pieces Naan Bread, Toasted

Start by chopping the onion into a small dice and the cilantro until it is fine. Empty the tomatoes into a medium saucepan and set to simmer gently with 1/4 of the onion, and 1 Tbsp of the minced garlic.

Add both meats to a bowl and season with the Seasoned Salt and Curry Powder. Add 1/2 of the onion, 1 Tbsp of the Minced garlic, the cubed bread, egg and 1/2 of the cilantro to the meat and mix until well combined.

Form patties and fire up the grill. These will take about 15-20 minutes and need to be cooked to medium well.

While the burgers are grilling, empty the yogurt into a medium saucepan with 1/4 of the onion and 1/4 of the cilantro. Put the heat to low and stir regularly until warmed through.

Toast the Naan. Add the last bit of cilantro to your simmering tomatoes, stir to combine, bring your burgers in from the grill, and get ready to pull the plate together!

Break up your Toasted Naan on each plate, pour about a 1/4 cup of the tomato mixture over the Naan, add the same amount of the Yogurt sauce and top with one of the burgers.  You can top it with a bit more Yogurt if you'd like it~ you won't regret it.

So tasty and delicious! I even ate it with all the fixings this time. Plus, you know that when Nieceamine eats someone else's leftovers that it's hit ridiculously high on the awesome meter!
