Turkey Burgers With Zucchini
Updated: Feb 21, 2021
5 oz grated zucchini (when squeezed 4.25 oz)
1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
2 TBSP Oat Bran
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tbsp grated red onion
1 tsp kosher salt and fresh pepper
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Squeeze ALL the moisture from the zucchini with paper towels. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, zucchini, oat bran, garlic, onion, salt, Italian seasoning and pepper. Make 5 equal patties, 4 1/2 ounces each, not too thick so they cook in the center.
To cook indoors: Heat a large nonstick skillet on high heat. When hot, lightly spray oil. Add burgers to the pan and reduce the heat to low. Cook on one side until browned, then flip. Flip over a few times to prevent burning and to make sure the burgers are cooked all the way through.
If grilling: Clean grill well before cooking and spray with oil spray to prevent sticking. Cook the burgers on medium heat about 5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in the center.
