Grilled Turkey Salsa Burgers

Hey Freaders!  (I just made up that word.  It’s a combination of friends and readers…like Brangelina, except way cooler.)  I’ve been trying slow down a bit the past couple of weeks, so even though my turkey chefs have been hard at work, I’ve been slacking in posting their recipes.  To make up for it, I’m going to share an awesome turkey burger recipe with you today, from my friend, Ann…
From Penzeys Spices
The weather is warming up and that means it’s time for grilling! Most people know how to grill a good beef burger, but here is a delicious recipe for grilled turkey burgers that you’ll want to make over and over again.
1 lb. ground turkey
2 scallions, 3 inches of green left on, thinly sliced
1 small red bell pepper, cored, seeded and finely chopped
2 teaspoon. minced fresh garlic
2 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, optional
4 burger buns, sliced and brushed with melted butter
mayonnaise, sliced avocado, lettuce leaves, sliced tomato, and sliced onion for garnish
Prepare hot grill. Mix ground turkey with scallions, bell pepper, garlic, cilantro and spices. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Gently form into four equal patties.
Place on grill, and cook for about five minutes on each side. (To test if the burgers are done, check using a thermometer. Ground turkey should be cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.)
Grill the buns off to the side over indirect heat, keeping them warm until ready to serve.
When the burgers are ready, place on the buns and garnish with mayonnaise, avocado, lettuce, tomato and onion and serve.
Tomato, lettuce, onion and avocado for garnish.

Finished burger. Delicious!
