*Gourmet* Turkey Burgers

My hubby is a burger officionado. He absolutely loves cheeseburgers and all burgers in general. If he could have any meal, every day for the rest of his life, I am pretty sure burgers would be it. Up until recently {when I raged and stormed that he couldn't answer that way} when asked what he wanted to eat, he would say "cheeseburger?" Unfortunately, he is not a huge fan of turkey burgers, which is a much healthier way to enjoy a burger. I have had to get very creative with the seasoning of my ground turkey in order to get him to eat it. Last week, I went all out and bought Weber Gourmet Burger seasoning and added it to my burgers. It seemed to work pretty well, Billy ate his turkey burger, and even had one for lunch the next day.

Adrian's Gourmet Turkey Burgers
1 package ground turkey (93/7 Jennie-O)
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp Weber gourmet burger seasoning
6 Ezekiel buns
sliced tomatoes
baby spinach, stems removed
ketchup
Directions:
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, Worcestershire, and burger seasoning using your hands. Separate mixture into 6 balls

squish into patty shape, and place in skillet. Heat until juices well up in the center, then flip.

I always cut the patties in the middle to make sure it's cooked all the way through. Remove from pan onto a paper towel on a plate to rest. Toast Ezekiel buns, spread with ketchup, pile on the baby spinach and tomatoes, and done! I served the burgers with Alexia spicy sweet potato chipotle seasoned fries and steamed veggies.

Burger, bun, sauce and produce, with half a serving of fries, and 1 cup steamed broccoli cuts, we are looking at 420 calories for a yummy and very filling dinner!
