ingredients

  • 6 ounces zucchini, grated (about 1 medium size)
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated onions
  • 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • 1 lb ground turkey breast
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 1 ripe small tomatoes, sliced
  • nonstick cooking spray, for the grill
  • Spicy sauce (optional)

  • 14 cup ketchup
  • 12 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

directions

  • Spray "grill cooking spray," such as Pam, on the grill grate while it is unheated. Then prepare the outdoor grill for covered direct grilling on medium.
  • In a medium bowl, combine zucchini, onion, and Cajun seasoning until well-mixed. With hands, add ground turkey and mix until just blended. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick burgers, handling meat as little as possible for best texture.
  • Place burgers on hot grill grate and cook 12-14 minutes or just until no longer pink throughout, turning once.
  • Prepare sauce: In small bowl, combine ketchup and hot sauce; set aside.
  • Serve burgers on buns with lettuce, tomato and condiments of your choice.

    These were moist and tasty and held together well during cooking. I chose to cook them in the oven on a tray with a light spray of oil. They didn't brown, but that didn't affect the taste. Thanks for posting TT.

    Fall PAC 2009: Nice change of pace when it comes to burgers! We enjoyed these - the zucchini made them moist - delicious!
