Leftover Pickle Juice

My Turkey burgers always end up being so dry.

I had saved the empty pickle jar with a 1/2 cup of pickle juice still in the bottom.

It was almost dinner time.

I got out a frying pan last night and put 4 thawed turkey burger patties in it.  I poured the pickle juice over it all. I cooked it on medium for about 15 minutes on each side.  The burgers were juicy and flavorful without being too salty or tangy.  Some of the juice was still in the pan when they were done being cooked, but I just drained that down the sink.  I think I'll remember this recipe the next time I am making turkey burgers in the house on the stove top.  It was so easy, used up some spare things and solved the dry meat problem.

  1. Another awesome idea for leftover pickle juice is to use it to braise savoy cabbage.
