Turkey Burgers with Spring Mix, Avocado & Homemade Salsa
I stumbled upon this recipe (from allrecipes.com) for turkey burgers last week when I was faced with 2lbs of ground turkey in my fridge. The entire recipe made 8 patties, so I cooked 4 (2 for me, 2 for my significant other) and froze the rest. Topped with spring mix, a homemade tomato salsa and avocado slices, delish. Ingredients (4 servings - 2 patties+topping each) Turkey Burger Patties - 2lbs (900g) lean ground turkey - 2 tbsp + 2 tsp seasoned bread crumbs (I used Panko) - 2 tbsp + 2 tsp diced onion - 1 egg white, lightly beaten - 2 tbsp + 2 tsp chopped fresh parsley - 1 clove garlic, minced - 3/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper (I just eyeballed these two when making them) Tomato Salsa - 1 whole tomato, diced - 1/2 red onion, diced - 1 large garlic clove, minced - 2 tsp dried basil - 1 tbsp light feta cheese - black pepper to taste - small bunch of spring mix per serving - 2 avocados, sliced (half avocado/patty) Directions - In a bowl, lightly beat the egg white. Add remainder of burger patty ingredients and mix thoroughly. Form into 8 patties and grill on a BBQ (or pan fry in a skillet on your stove) about 5 minutes/side or until fully cooked through. - Meanwhile, combine all salsa ingredients in a bowl. - To assemble, place 2 patties on a plate, top with spring mix, salsa and avocado slices. Enjoy!
