Turkey Burgers...

Turkey Burgers...

I started with 1 1/2 pounds of ground turkey.

To that I added 1 egg, about 1/2 cup bread crumbs and salt and pepper to taste (I only used a pinch of salt cause of Dan's diet). The egg helps to hold the patties together and the bread crumbs gives a little softer texture but you do not have to add them.

You can add other stuff, too, like Lipton Onion Soup mix or other spices to flavor it up like you like. You can even add some beef or chicken boullion.

I got six patties out of this recipe and because they are so lean they do not cook away and get small like beef burgers do. Shape the patties by hand or with a burger press and then pop them on the grill. If you are using an outdoor grill I would freeze the patties ahead of time so they cook without breaking up and falling through the grill. The leaner the burgers the more they tend to fall apart.

Hope you enjoy this recipe - let me know if you do some variations you enjoy cause I would love to try them.
