Recipe of the week: California Turkey Burgers

California Turkey Burgers

California Turkey Burgers

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup minced scallions
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey
Nonstick cooking spray
3 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
2 firm, ripe tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 just-ripe avocado, thinly sliced
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

1. In a small skillet, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Saute the scallions until just softened, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl, season with the salt and black pepper and let cool. Stir in the sour cream and Worcestershire sauce; add the turkey and mix gently until just combined. Form into 6 patties.
2. Heat a grill to medium-high. Mist grill with cooking spray and cook burgers 5 minutes. Turn and grill until almost cooked through, about 3 minutes more. Top each burger with some of the blue cheese; cook 1 to 2 minutes more or until burgers are just cooked through and cheese is melted.
3. Arrange burgers on buns and top with sliced tomato, avocado, and red onion.
