Sage, Garlic & Onion Turkey Burgers

When I think of Thanksgiving...I think of turkey & sage. That's what inspired me for this yummy burger.  Bread, turkey, sage, onions, nutty/woody mushrooms, garlic....very Thanksgiving-ish.

1.25 lbs lean ground turkey (I buy mine at Sam's Club for $1.97/lb - 93% lean!)
1/2 sweet onion
5 cloves garlic
a small handful of fresh sage (free from my herb garden!)
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Use a food processor to mince the sage, garlic & onions together into very small bits.

Mix the aromatics with the turkey - season with salt & pepper. Mix well.

Form the meat into 4 large patties (you could make 6 smaller burgers too) and grill.

 I topped mine with some sauteed mushrooms & garlic, avocado, lettuce, tomato, red onion & mozzarella cheese. No condiments necessary!!!

My "burger bar"

Those were some awesome burgers. My toddler loved them. He cleaned his plate...mushrooms, avocado, onions and all.
