    Turkey Burgers Fo' Real!

    Total Time: 20 minutes


    1 1/3 lb. ground turkey

    4 slices turkey bacon

    1 shallot- finely chopped

    2 cloves garlic- finely minced

    2 tbsp. freshly chopped thyme

    2 tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro

    1/2 chopped green bell pepper

    2 tsp. ground cumin

    1 tsp. garlic salt

    1 tsp. paprikia

    olive oil for drizzling

    sliced jack cheese

    red leaf lettuce

    1/2 sliced avocado

    1 yellow onion- thinly sliced

    salt and pepper to taste

    optional: butter



    In a skillet, place 1 tbsp. olive oil or butter and sliced onions. Sprinkle sea salt and pepper on onions and slowly cook for 15-20 minutes to carmelize. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, shallot, garlic, thyme, cilantro, bell pepper, cumin, garlic salt, and paprika. Mix it all up, then cut into fourths and separate. Create 4 patties, drizzle with olive oil. Add a bit more olive oil to a skillet and place the patties in the pan. Cook for about 7 minutes, then flip. Cover with 1 slice of jack cheese. In the meantime, place the turkey bacon in a separate pan. Cook for 5 minutes per side. 

    Place large lettuce leaves on a plate. Place a booked turkey burger patty on top, cheese side up. Cover with carmelized onions, turkey bacon, sliced avocado. Squirt some ketchup and mustard on and top with another lettuce leaf. Enjoy!
