It's barbecue season and that means lots of burgers! If you buy a lot of pre-made patties, it can eat into your food budget in a hurry. This recipe uses only 1/2 lb of ground turkey to make six good-sized, flavourful burgers. You can substitute chicken or beef for the turkey if you want to shake things up.
Time: 20 minutes
1/2 lb ground turkey
1/3 cup salsa
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
1/2 - 3/4 cup quick cooking oats
6 hamburger buns (I prefer whole grain ones!)
Condiments as desired
In a medium bowl, combine the turkey, salsa, onion, egg, cumin, salt and pepper. Gradually add oats until the mixture holds together well. Shape into 6 burger patties.
Grill or pan-fry patties until golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Serve on warm buns with your choice of condiments.
These burgers are great served with baked potatoes or oven fries and creamy cucumber salad.
