Turkey Bleu Burgers

I think we’re seeing the last summery days of the year. The leaves are changing, the colors are blazing, the sun is shining, and everyone wants to spend as much time outside as possible. I have a sneaking suspicion that this week is probably the last week that I’m going to actually enjoy grilling hamburgers. So in honor of this lovely weather, I tried a new variation on the standard burger: Turkey Bleu Burgers!

I got this tasty recipe from my friend, Athalia. Because Athalia was feeding two adults and one little one with this recipe, I automatically tripled it for my family. The following should make three generous burgers:

Turkey Bleu Burgers

  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 1 c. pinto beans, mushed up
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 2 green onions, sliced finely
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1/4 c. bleu cheese crumbles


Smush all these ingredients together, mixing them together thoroughly. Form into burgers; you can see from the photo that they’re a bit messy at this stage. If you can carefully keep them together now, as they cook, they’ll hold together much better. Grill over medium heat. Serve on buns with all the regular burger fixins’.

My family loved these burgers. I also made venison burgers and ground beef burgers. The turkey burgers were, hands down, the best.

  2. We made these this past weekend, using some of the non-fried refried beans (your recipe too) we had in the freezer. I think my husband was a bit sceptical while he was putting them together, but we all ended up enjoying them. We both used horseradish on our burgers, and our guest used dijon mustard. We were all happy with our choices. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
