2 lbs ground Turkey - this is for my family of 6. You might need less.
Salt and Pepper
Green Leaf Lettuce
Directions - Wash and cut potato's into wide wedges. Toss them with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place in one layer on a baking sheet in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until tender.
Make sure to toss them at least once to brown both sides.
Cut up bell pepper, mushroom's and onion. Saute them in a skillet until tender - hold off on salting them until mushrooms have turned a rich brown. This is supposed to speed up the process.
I like to keep mine as close to the natural shape as possible. I want my kids to know they are eating veggies - If they taste good and look like veggies they might try them again - just my thought's on the subject.
Add all spices to taste. I like to do a palmful of chili powder, cumin and a sprinkle of onion powder. A pinch of salt and a sprinkle of pepper. Mix thoroughly with you hands and form into patty's.
You can thank Rachael Ray for my exact measurements. :)
Since ground turkey like ground beef is prone to shrink - make sure you patty's are wider rather than higher.
Brown patty's until cooked through (I cut mine open to make sure) in a large skillet.
I picked up some green leaf lettuce and tomatoes to top our burgers.
And Voila - This was one mean looking burger -- so large in fact we could hardly get our mouths around it! Everyone chowed down - just like they do when we go out to eat - but I know this was a much healthier version - with ground turkey, 100 % whole wheat buns, 5 veggies and no cheese.
If you have never given ground turkey a try - you should - it's cheaper, healthier and you really can't taste the difference when it's browned.
We give this recipe 5 Spoons!
