    What a delicious weeknight dinner! Substituted peach for the papaya (just had that on hand) and added half a jalapeno pepper to the salsa and the other half to the meat mixture. Also threw a dash of cayenne pepper into the meat. Cooked my burgers on the grill pan and served on whole wheat buns, topped with field greens and avocado. Side of sweet potato fries made the meal complete! Thanks for a winner! The sweet and sour sauce was a great addition!

    These burgers worked out really nicely! The salsa is a must, we ate it with other things too. The papaya I was saving for this mysteriously disappeared, so alas it was only mango salsa...still very good. The turkey burgers were pretty easy to throw together, I wasn't sure if they would hold together well, but they did (I left them in the fridge for a number of hours before cooking). Pan fried this time, but definitely going on the BBQ next time. Kids liked them too. Cheers! (Made for ZWT Cooks w/Dirty Faces Team)
