Texas Turkey Burgers

These burgers are healthy and packed full of flavor.

1 lb lean ground turkey meat (use the Turkey Store brand)
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1 small zucchini, grated
1 medium size carrot, grated
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
muenster cheese, sliced

1. With hands mix ground turkey, green onions, zucchini, carrot, chili powder, salt, cumin, and red pepper until well combined.
2. Shape into 6 patties.
3. Spray skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Over medium high heat heat skillet. 4. Add patties and cook 5 minutes; turn patties and cook 5 minutes more or until no longer pink inside. Melt cheese on top. Serve on a hamburger bun with mayo, lettuce, tomato and onion.
Serves 4-6
Hint: Can also make on grill. I start them on foil as they are fragile and once they're cooked some I place on grill grates.
