Turkey burgers

This dinner is actually from Wednesday night, but the site that I upload my cell phone pictures to has been down. Well, I wish I hadn't waited because the picture isn't that great. But I put it in anyway! I promise it looked a lot yummier in real life. And they were really good!I found a recipe on Cara's blog for Teriyaki Turkey Burgers, and it sounded great! Only problem was, I didn't have any teriyaki sauce! So my Turkey burgers had some of the same ingredients as Cara's. Let's just say I used her recipe as a starting off point. I'll call mine Onion-y Garlic-y Basil Turkey Burgers.

I picked up some fresh basil at the farmer's market on Sunday, and needed a way to use it up before it wilts away. So I threw some of that in there. Cara's recipe called for red onion, but I only had yellow onion, so that's what I used. Here's my recipe for Onion-y Garlic-y Basil Turkey Burgers:

1.25 pounds ground turkey
1/2 a yellow onion, chopped finely
2 cloves of garlic, minced
about 5 or 6 leaves fresh basil, chopped
i might have added oregano, i don't remember :-)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together with hands. I was able to get 5 burgers from this recipe. I cooked mine on the stove top because I did not feel like dealing with our George Foreman Grill. I just sprayed a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and cooked them in that. It was super easy and delicious! I served them with long grain white rice (I know, not the healthiest) and roasted zucchini. It was a really simple and yummy dinner!
