Spicy Turkey Burgers


Throwing a burger on the grill is such an easy summer meal. We have both been enjoying turkey burgers when we go out to eat and I decided to try it at home.
I wanted plenty of spice and seasoning as turkey has a lot less fat (and therefore flavor) then hamburger. Some of the flavor was in the meat in the form of Cayenne pepper and garlic and onion flavor, but most came from the spicy guacamole and Pepper Jack cheese. I really like Wholly guacamole and we both enjoyed the spicy variety.

 Ingredients:
1 Pound ground turkey breast
½ tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp Pepper
½ tsp Onion Powder
Salt
Cayenne Pepper
1 Egg

Top Burgers With:

Tomato Slices
Guacamole - spicy if desired
Cheese - Pepper Jack or your choice
Directions:

Combine meat, spices and egg and mix with your hands. Separate into our equal amounts and form into burgers. 

Spray one side of patties lightly with no-stick cooking spray. Place burgers carefully on grill. Spray the other side of the patty before flipping. Handle carefully and try to only flip the burgers once. Turkey burgers fall apart much easier then hamburger.

Serve on fresh buns with tomato slices, guacamole and cheese.

I served it with classic potato salad and it was a good combination.
