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

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare the grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

To prepare sauce, combine first 3 ingredients; set aside.

Step 3

To prepare patties, combine shallots and the next 7 ingredients (through turkey breast), mixing well. Divide mixture into 10 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Place patties on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until done.

Step 4

Spread 1 tablespoon sauce on top half of each bun. Layer bottom half of each bun with 1 lettuce leaf, 1 patty, 2 pickles, 1 onion slice, 2 avocado slices, and about 1/3 cup of sprouts. Cover with top halves of buns.

I was looking for a recipe for burgers that did not use beerf and came across this one. My family loved these. I only used 2 lbs. of ground turkey meat. I didn't bother with distingushing between white and dark meat. I used the same proportions the recipe called for even though I used less meat. I did not use the sauce. I served these with my family's condiments of choice which included mustard, teriyaki sauce and BBQ sauce. The sprouts and avocado were big contributors to the overall ressult. We added tomatoes and left off the pickles and onions. I think this is the type of recipe that you need to modify based on how you like your burgers. I have now made these several times for many different family members and friends and they always get good reviews.

The burger was plain. The sauce reminded me of seafood cocktail sauce. I prefer the Teriyaki Burger by far!
