Zuccini Turkey Burgers

The zuccini is undetectable in

This recipe is so simple, one is tempted to add things to it -- many of my friends have tried.  But it needs nothing else.  The way I designed this dish (almost accidentally) was to be totally delicious with just these simple ingredients. 

Not only is it "fast good food" (my favorite kind) -- it's nearly a meal in itself. 

Adele's Zuccini Turkey Burgers

1 lb ground turkey (I prefer regular ground turkey; turkey "breast" is too dry)
1 small to small-medium zuccini
1/2 large onion or 1 small onion
4 T. oat bran
4 T. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Process in the food processor with steel S blade the zuccini and onion into very small pieces (don't puree it).  Add to other ingredients and mix well.  Shape into burgers -- I use an ice cream scoop to make about 2 oz burgers. 

Saute in olive oil (or coconut oil or grapeseed oil) on medium about 3-4 minutes each side.  Make sure the pan and oil are pre-heated to carmelize the burgers.  This is where a lot of the great taste comes from.  Makes about 8 or more small burgers.

Let me know how you like them!
