TURKEY BURGERS

This is my own recipe. The amount of seasonings is what I use, but you can vary that according to your own taste.

Ingredients:
--1 pound ground turkey
--1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil--otherwise they may come out dry
--about 1/2 teaspoon salt substitute (or use however much regular salt or salt substitute that YOU would use for a pound of ground beef burgers)
-- about 2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh onion
-- about 3/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
-- about 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
-- about 1/2 tsp. McCormick salt free all-purpose seasoning.

makes 4 quarter pounders

I just fried them up like hamburgers in a non-stick skillet sprayed with PAM in case there was already enough oil--there was and they were nice and juicy inside. You can blot off any excess oil or press it out with a spatula if you like AFTER cooking.
