Amazingly Tasty Turkey Burgers

Attention Hamburger Addicts!!!

Tired of the gristle, grease and fat in your burgers?
Wish there was a healthier alternative to your burger addiction?

I believe I have found your solution....the Amazingly Tasty Turkey Burger!! 

What? What's that?  Turkey burgers are dry and tasteless, you say? 

Not these babies!! These are juicy and have so much flavor that it's almost a sin! And who doesn't like a good sin every so often? You do, that's who!!!

Dare I even say that you could win over your carnivorous side with the Amazingly Tasty Turkey Burger? I dare!

For six Amazingly Tasty Turkey Burgers, score yourself 1.25 pounds of ground gobbler meat.  Put it in a big bowl and season with salt and pepper.

To the bowl, add minced garlic, finely chopped red onion and parsley. Get your paws dirty and mix it all in.

Then toss in 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 egg and about 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs.

Here's a little trick I use that you might find helpful:  After everything is mixed together, put it back in the styrofoam tray the meat was packaged in and pack it in nice and neat.

Score the meat according to how many burgers you want. I'm making 6, so I scored it into 6 even pieces. If you're making more than 6, I wouldn't recommend this. You could use this portioning method for 4 burgers.

Then just scoop out your perfectly proportioned portions and pat into patties!

Wipe out the styrofoam thingy and stack your pretty patties two by two in it.

Use wax paper in between and refrigerate until ready to cook.

I was so hungry I forgot to photograph the finished product (after frying in a skillet for 8-10 minutes and slappin' it on a bun), but trust me...you'll love them!
