Italian Turkey Burgers
As an exciting and healthy alternative to the boring burger, we’re tempted to give it a fancy Italian name, but it’s just ground turkey mixed with sautéed onions, roasted peppers, garlic, fennel seeds and mustard. The succulent patty is so moist and flavorful, it could easily go bunless.

- Sauté the onion in the olive oil until translucent, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool. In a large bowl, thoroughly combine turkey, garlic, fennel, red pepper, onion, mustard and salt and pepper. Divide evenly into 4 patties. Chill if not using right away.
- Heat a charcoal or gas grill until hot. Lightly oil the grill with tongs holding paper towels dipped in oil. Grill turkey burgers for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, or until completely cooked through. Top each with 1 ounce cheese and cover grill to melt. Serve on toasted bun with lettuce and tomato.
