Turkey Burger

One of my fav's because it's a burger but you don't feel guilty after you eat it!

Turkey Burgers (Recipe from: Elizabeth Weight)
1 lb. ground turkey
1/2 cup mango salsa (I think I actually used peach/pineapple this time because I couldn't find mango)
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (the dry kind you shake on pasta)
1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1 egg
2 tsp. cajun seasoning
Frank's red hot sauce, dash (optional)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Pitas or Sandwich thins

Optional Toppings:
Baby spinach
Carrots, grated
Onions, sliced and sautéed in butter
Tomatoes, sliced or chopped
Avocados, sliced or mashed
Spicy Mayo (Mayo mixed with hot sauce and lime juice)
  1. Combine turkey, salsa, egg, bread crumbs, cilantro, lime juice, salt, garlic powder and Cajun seasoning in a bowl. Mix well
  2. Form turkey into patties.
  3. Then, prepare desired toppings. Grate carrots, chop tomatoes an avocados. Slice onions and saute them in some butter until golden brown.
  4. Cook patties over medium heat until cooked through.
  5. Assemble burgers with desired toppings on sandwich thin or in a pita.
