Ingredients- Burger

  • 1) 1 pound ground 97% fat free turkey meat
  • 2) 2 zucchinni
  • 3) A mix of spices (I use oregano, italian, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder)

Ingredients – Salad

  • 1) Mixed Greens
  • 2) Brocoli Slaw
  • 3) Cucumber
  • 4) Cherry Tomatoes
  • 5) Soy Sauce
  • 6) Garlic Salt and Garlic Powder
  • 7) 1/4 Avocado (not pictured but it’s really good with it)

Directions – Turkey Burger

  • Set broiler on high and let heat up while you mix the meat and ingredients
  • Grate 2 zucchinis (I cup them up into small pieces and put into blender on grind section because it’s a bit faster)
  • In a large bowl, mix 1 pound extra lean ground turkey meat, grated zucchini, salt, 1 tbs garlic powder, 1 tbs oregano, 2 tbs basil, some onion powder if you have/like, 1 tbs black pepper and 1 tbs smoked paprika (I change the amounts based on what I have in the cupboard/what I feel like. Generally any seasoning you like will add to the burgers flavors and taste good).
  • I put burgers on well oiled baking sheet as they usually stick
  • You can either do bigger fewer burgers and cook for a bit longer or smaller burgers and make more servings
  • Generally I’ll make 6 medium sized patties with these ingredients
  • Place burgers in oven and broil for 8-9 minutes, take out, flip burgers and repeat for another 8-9 minutes (Just make sure to keep an eye on them)
  • You want them to be browned and crisp on the outside but juicy on the inside
  • Turkey is hard to tell when it’s fully cooked so I like to use a meat thermometer just to make sure

Directions – Salad

  • Fry up some broccoli slaw with garlic salt, olive oil spray and soy sauce- (this will add some different texture to your salad)
  • Place slaw on mixed greens and top with cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and avocado
  • The smooth avocado and crunchy broccoli slaw really compliment each other
  • Top salad with plain balsamic vinegar
