Turkey Burgers with Avocado & Hummus Recipe:

You’ll Need

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 heaping tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp each sea salt and pepper
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • Toppings: 1-2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced, 1-2 tomatoes, thinly-sliced, 6 romaine heart leaves, 1/2 cup store-bought hummus

Prep and Cook

  • Place turkey, egg, Dijon, feta, breadcrumbs, parsley, salt, and pepper in a large bowl
    Using your hands, gently fold all the ingredients together until they are evenly mixed (but do not overwork!)
    Shape into 4 to 6 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick patties and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet
  • Using your thumb, gently press an indent into the center of each patty
    Cover and place in fridge until ready to cook
    Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat
    Grill burgers, covered, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 8 - 10 minutes per side (times will vary depending on the thickness of the burgers and the temp of your grill
    The internal temperature should be at least 165F when taken with a thermometer in the thickest part of the burger)
  • Slice buns in half
    Top with cooked burgers, tomato, avocado, romaine hearts, and hummus
