{Healthy} Turkey Burgers-The Best

Now, There are a lot of turkey burger recipes out there. I mean, turkey is the new beef...right? Now, I am extremely picky when it comes to burgers. I eat a lot of them, and am pretty darn awesome at it (if I do say so myself...Scott can attest as well if you want). This one was pretty darn awesome. Loved it. You could tell it was a turkey burger, but so scrumptious I would choose it over a regular burger...sometimes.

{Healthy} Turkey Burgers
1 pound lean ground turkey
½ pound lean turkey sausage, casing removed and crumbled
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 celery rib, finely chopped
1 medium zucchini, finely grated
1 garlic clove, crushed through a press
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crushed
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons soy sauce
3 ripe tomatoes, cut crosswise into ½ inch slices
6 Boston lettuce leaves, washed and drained

Combine the turkey, sausage, green onions, celery, zucchini, garlic, oregano, ½ teaspoon pepper, and soy sauce in a bowl and mix gently. With wet hands, shape into 6 (½ inch thick) patties.

Prepare a grill for barbecuing or preheat the broiler and place the burgers on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Grill or broil the burgers 4 inches from the heat source until cooked through, 8 to minutes, turning after 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 3 minutes.

Place the tomatoes on the grill or baking sheet and grill or broil until charred and hot, 5 minutes, turning once and sprinkling with the remaining ½ teaspoon pepper.

Place the lettuce leaves on dinner plates and top each with a burger. Top each burger with a tomato slice.

Serve with roasted potato wedges (or if you need some fat...tater tots).
