Turkey Burgers

I have been cooking a lot lately and I have been wanting to post some of my favorite dishes. Here is a healthy and fast recipe that will have you full and satisfied. The recipe comes from "Deliciously Deceptive" by Jessica Seinfeld (I love this cookbook!).

Turkey Burgers
1 pd lean ground turkey
1/2 pd. mushroom (I use button mushrooms and a 1/2 pd is about one small cartoon)
1 cup whole wheat or Italian breadcrumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped zucchini (about half of a zucchini)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Ketchup
1/2 tea. salt
1/4 tea. pepper
1 tablespoon Olive oil

Heat oven to 400 F

First chop up zucchini and mushrooms in food processor. Add to a large bowl. Then add Turkey, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire, ketchup, salt and pepper. Combine and make about 8-9 patties.

Heat large oven safe skillet on medium high and coat with cooking spray. Add oil when hot. Add patties and brown on one side about 4-5 minutes. Flip and put skillet in oven and cook for another 4-5 minutes or until they are no longer pink. Use whole wheat buns and top with all your favorite fixings (I especially love adding guacamole to mine). Enjoy!

Rachael, I love this cookbook too. I haven't tried this one but will now. Have you tried the pancakes? So yummy! I wish I had more time to puree. Maybe I should be doing that instead of blogging! Oh, we can get together anytime. I would be so happy to come to SLC to see you all. Let's set it up!
