Are you compelled to treat the special father in your life to a BBQ this weekend? Get your grill on for these flavourful and juicy Italian Turkey Burgers with Basil Mayonnaise. Not only is a BBQ synonymous with summer, it also resonates fun, sunshine, time with family and community spirit. These wonderful burgers will be sure to impress yet leave you time to spend with friends and family.

In this recipe the Italian sausage adds some much needed fat to the lean ground turkey, giving the burger more flavour and moisture. The sausage by its own nature also brings spices such as fennel, garlic, and oregano to the mixture. The basil mayonnaise adds a refreshing creaminess to the burger and creates a wonderful combination.

Be sure to mix thoroughly so the Italian sausage is evenly distributed, however you still need to take care not to over mix. By making a shallow indentation in the center of each patty it will help prevent it from shrinking too much and leave a uniformly round patty. thekitchn.com has a great blog demonstrating patty forming and whether or not the indentation actually matters.

Make the most of your sunny weekend and treat dad to the BBQ he deserves with Italian Turkey Burgers with Basil Mayonnaise.
