I received sprouts and tomatoes in this week's fruit and veggie co-op box and was so excited to make this favorite recipe only to find it wasn't on this blog. So, I'm a couple year's too late but here is one of our all-time favorite turkey burger recipes (served on my homemade hamburger buns). It's simple yet packed with flavor.
I also like the variety of healthy nutrients found in the avocado, sprouts and tomatoes. This was initiation for my children into the wonderful world of sprouts and they loved them! My eldest child said: "Mom, these parsley things taste like green peas." We've eaten sprouts for lunch all week now. Mmm, mmm!
Turkey Burgers with Avocado Mayonnaise
1 lb ground turkey
1/4 c Panko bread crumbs
1 t chili powder
1/2 t garlic salt
1/2 t seasoned salt
1/2 t pepper
1/4 c mayonnaise
2 t lemon juice
1/4 t garlic powder
shake of tobasco sauce (optional)
4 whole wheat burger buns
1 small tomato
1 c alfalfa sprouts
Heat grill. In medium bowl combine first five ingredients; mix well. Shape the turkey mixture into four 5-inch patties. When ready to grill, oil grill rack. Place patties on gas grill over medium-high heat. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until no longer pink in center, turning once. Meanwhile, in blender combine mayonnaise and peeled and pitted avocado, lemon juice, garlic powder and tabasco sauce. Blend until smooth.
To serve, spread bottom halves of hamburger buns with mayonnaise mixture. Top with turkey burger, tomato slice and sprouts.
