Turkey Burgers (makes 4 burgers)

  • 1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp spicy brown mustard

Combine turkey, salt, and mustard in a bowl, form into patties, and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Cook patties 8-10 minutes on each side at 375 degrees. Careful not to overcook because turkey burgers will be lighter in color than beef and can dry out quickly. I used whole wheat sandwich thins as a lighter bun option. I combined 1 mashed avocado, a dash of hot sauce, and fresh cilantro from the garden for a fresh and flavorful spread. Arugula’s peppery flavor complemented the mustard in the burgers and added texture.
