Vegetable Filled Burgers are a delicious way to get more vegetables into your diet. Start with ground turkey, then add a variety of veggies before popping the patties in the grill for a healthier, tastier “burger”.

Vegetable Filled BurgersPrep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Ready In: 30 min

Servings: 4

2 tbsp Milk
½ cup Carrots, finely shredded
¼ cup Green Onion, finely sliced
¼ cup soft Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs
¼ tsp dried Italian Seasoning, crushed
¼ tsp Garlic Salt
1 dash fresh Ground Black Pepper
¾ lb lean ground Turkey or Chicken
¼ cup Dijon style Mustard
½ tsp Curry Powder
4 medium Hamburger Buns, (whole wheat or white) split and toasted

Stir together milk, carrot, green onion, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Add ground turkey; mix well. Shape the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Lightly grease the grill rack.
For a charcoal grill, place patties on the greased grill rack directly over medium-hot coals. Grill, uncovered, about 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of a patty registers 165-degrees, turning once.
For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-hot. Place patties on grill rack; cover and grill patties as directed in second step.
Meanwhile, stir together mustard and curry powder.
Serve patties on buns topped (if desired, with lettuce leaves, zucchini, sliced tomato, and curry mustard mixture.)

Tips & Notes
If you want to include melted cheese on your turkey burger, add a slice of your favorite cheese with about three minutes to go while grilling. Cover the burger with an aluminum pie pan to help seal in the heat and melt the cheese evenly.
