Turkey Burgers with Zucchini
Health Highlights


142 gm Zucchini (excess liquid squeezed out)
454 gm Ground turkey, lean
1/4 cup Bread crumbs, seasoned
1 clove(s) Garlic (grated)
2 ring Red onion (chopped)
1 pinch Salt and pepper
3 spray (about 1/3 second) Olive oil cooking spray


Squeeze all the moisture from the zucchini with paper towels.

In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, zucchini, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, salt and pepper. Make 5 equal patties, 4 1/2 ounces each, not too thick so they cook in the center.

To cook indoors: Heat a large nonstick skillet on high heat. When hot, lightly spray oil. Add burgers to the pan and reduce the heat to low. Cook on one side until browned, then flip. Flip over a few times to prevent burning and to make sure the burgers are cooked all the way through.

If grilling: Clean grill well before cooking and spray with oil spray to prevent sticking. Cook the burgers on medium heat about 5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in the center.
