Turkey Burgers

Yield: 4 burgers

 

Time: 30 mins 

For the burgers:

  • ½ medium onion

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  •  Freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 4 hamburger buns, whole wheat

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or use pan spray

For serving:

  •  Sliced tomato

  •  Sliced onion

  •  Iceberg lettuce

  •  Pickles

  •  Sliced red pepper

  •  Ketchup and mustard

1. Grate the onion on the fine holes of a grater. You should have about two tablespoons of grated onion (and a lot of juice, which you can discard). Alternately, you can mince the onion. Place in a bowl with the ground turkey, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, salt and pepper. Using a fork, mix together well. Shape into four patties — the mixture will be quite moist — and press the patties into ½-inch thick rounds.

2. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick griddle or large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. (Alternately, spray the griddle or pan with pan spray). When you can feel the heat while holding your hand just above griddle or pan, cook the patties for 5-6 minutes on each side. Serve on buns, with condiments of your choice.
