Avocado Turkey Burgers

Hi, it's Ashley. Posting for the first time on this blog. I will write up a short bio of myself when I get around to it, but I thought I'd share this recipe with you first.

I actually got this idea from my husband several months ago. He came home from a shift (He's a fireman) and he told me that a guy had made turkey burgers for dinner the night before. He loved them so much that I had to try it out because he doesn't usually care for Turkey Burgers. I mean what man does? They just want their Beef.

I asked him what was in them that made them so good. He told me what was in it but I had to  figure out the ratio of everything. And that took a few times. Trial and error makes perfection, Right?

4 Ingredients! Easy Peasy.

1lb ground turkey
Half an avocado
2-3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
Mrs Dash original- to taste (I like A lot)

 I like to have some sweet potato fries on the side when I make these burgers. So slice them up. 2 big ones usually feeds my family of 4.
 Line a cookie sheet with foil (for easy clean up) and spray with Olive Oil Pam. I learned the hard way and didn't spray with Pam and they were totally stuck to the foil, so we had mush fries for dinner one time.

Then sprinkle with some sea salt and put them in a preheat oven on broil. Watch them until they brown and then turn them over and brown the other side. (Watch them because I burnt mine one time because I forgot about them and they were black).

 Mix your turkey burger ingredients together until the avocado is pretty mashed up. Then form into 4 patties.

I like to cook mine on a George Forman Grill that has two sides to it. That way is smashes it and holds it's form. The BBQ works too, but I have found that they fall apart a lot easier that way.
 Finish product of the fries.
 I like to top my burger with some more avocado, some tomatoes, a few pickle slices, leafy lettuce and some organic Ketchup and....
Wa Las Dinner is served!!!!!
