This turned out excellent...tasted delicious. Was too lazy to drain excess moisture & thought about adding breadcrumbs but still turned out great. Will definitely make again.

- 3/4 pound ground turkey
- 1 medium zucchini, grated
- 1 medium carrot, grated
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 large egg
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 slices crusty bread
- 4 small leaves Boston lettuce
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise (optional)
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (optional)
- Heat broiler.
In a large bowl, combine the turkey, zucchini, carrot, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper, and egg. Form the mixture into 4 patties.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties, turning once, until no trace of pink remains, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, place the bread on a baking sheet and brush with the remaining oil. Broil until golden brown and crisp, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer the bread to individual plates. Top with the lettuce leaves and burgers. If using, combine the mayonnaise and lemon juice in a small bowl and serve with the burgers.
Upgrade: For extra zest, rub the bread with the cut side of a peeled, halved garlic clove immediately after removing the bread from the oven.
