Avocado and Feta Turkey Burgers

Serves 5

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ medium (or 1/3 smaller) red onion (minced by hand or food processor/blender)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced by hand or food processor/blender)
  • ⅓ cup crumbled feta
  • 5 - 10 dashes hot sauce (i.e. Frank's Red Hot)
  • ½ Avocado from Mexico – peeled, pitted and diced
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Pinch salt and fresh pepper

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, egg, onion, garlic, feta, hot sauce and seasonings until ingredients are evenly distributed. Fold in diced avocado.
  3. Make 5 equal sized patties, not too thick so they cook in the center.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly grease with olive oil to prevent the burgers from sticking. Place baking sheet on the middle rack and bake for 30 minutes (or until cooked all the way through) turning once half way.
  5. Serve each burger in a butter lettuce roulé or on a whole grain (preferably sprouted grain) bun. Top with butter lettuce, tomato, red onion and tzatziki.
