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.
