California Burgers

Alfalfa sprouts and avocados crown these juicy burgers. A combination of regular ground turkey and ground turkey breast offers superior texture.

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free mayonnaise
  • Patties:
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

Prepare the grill to medium-high heat.
