Turkey Burger Search

Liveitloud Oct 10, 2010 02:39 AM

So I went to my local Costco last week to buy their Kirkland frozen all natural turkey burgers to be told that they are discontinued. They are really good and after trying them a few years ago I'm hooked. Does anyone know where I can get something comparable to that burger?

I have tried Jennie-o and butterball. One sucks and the other has too much fat in it. I have a history of gallbladder issue's and even after it was taken out I just can't eat things with much fat. I have looked on Schwann's site and Sam's club and have come up empty.

Any advice/links would be much appreciated.

    Although I have not bought them, I would consider the turkey burgers at one of the two Sprout's stores in Dallas. They may be a bit more expensive than Costco but, you can count on Sprout's excellent quality. I actually buy all my chicken there.

    Also at Sprouts, their organic 100% grass fed (very low fat) beef burger meat is the best tasting anywhere. Better even than Whole Foods and, less expensive.

      Seriously? Woah, that sucks. I'm just about to finish a package of those. They're the only frozen turkey burgers we've found that we like and that are decently healthy.

        Do yourself a great favor. Buy a meat grinder and buy only fresh turkey to make your own turkey burgers. You won't regret it, I promise.
        Once I started grinding all my own meats I never looked back. The difference in taste and quality is remarkable.

          Whats stopping you from making your own turkey burgers?
          You can get the meat pre-ground already or do it yourself.
          Just add some breadcrumbs, an egg or two and season it to your liking.
          Portion and prepare, you can always freeze uncooked patties as well for future use.

            I like CharlieKilo's idea. As a matter of fact, you don't even need a "meat grinder". Using the sharp blades of a food processor will do the trick. Just "pulse" the processor until you have the desired grind.
            For those who have a Kitchen Aid mixer, a meat grinder attachment is available.

              That sure is frustrating. Sorry I can't help you with the turkey burgers, but since I'm a "Costco addict" I would recommend the salmon burgers if you haven't already tried them. I cook them in my grill pan (they dry out too much on the outdoor grill), use a little cajun seasoning, and serve them on good quality buns with lettuce, tomato, red onion and homemade remoulade sauce or tartar sauce.

                Unclepat is right. You can get either ground white or dark meat Whole foods and just make your own. At least you'll know what's in it.
