Being on the Mediterranean style of eating, and craving a burger,(beef 1-2 times a month) I decided to make a turkey burger. I found these beautiful whole wheat kaiser rolls at the Safeway deli that topped it off beautifully. The Zucchini fries actually complemented the burger perfectly.
The following recipe is a basic recipe for burgers. I added fresh sage to give it more flavor. I find the basic makes enough I can split in half and add basil and oregano for meatballs later in the week, and hamburgers for another.
3 pounds ground turkey
1/4cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely diced onion
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1-2 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
In a skillet sweat together the onion, garlic and parsley. Let cool and add to ground turkey, seasoned bread crumbs, egg whites, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Form into patties.
Cook the patties in a medium skillet over medium heat, barbecue, or rotisserie turning once, to an internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C).
Slice zucchini into fries. Drizzle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, fresh garlic minced, salt and pepper. Roast in a 400 degree oven for 15 min, or until starting to turn golden brown. Add a light dusting of Parmesan cheese; toss and put back in the oven for an additional 5 min. or till done.
