Turkey burger stuffed with Zuchinni/mushrooms  {Meal for one}

Introduction

For people who want volume, but less calories. This is a healthier alternative to the "typical" beef hamburger,and will give you 2 servings of veggies in one meal. For people who want volume, but less calories. This is a healthier alternative to the "typical" beef hamburger,and will give you 2 servings of veggies in one meal.
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    4 ozs of 94% or more lean ground turkey
    1/2 cup of the following diced veggies:

    Zuchinni & Mushrooms (I used white button)
    3T shredded carrots
    1 tablespoon dehydrated onions
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    .5 teaspoon garlic powder
    .5 teaspoon coarse black pepper
    Salt to taste
    *************
    ** (Optional: .1/2 teaspoon of "Mongolian Fire Oil", by House of Tsang (optional), but it has chile peppers, garlic, onion & ginger, and it is really good, adds spice) **

Directions

Finely dice your veggies and put in a large bowl... add your ground turkey and your seasonings and mix well by hand, all the ingredients and shape into a patty. Some of the veggies will fall out, so press the loose ones on top of the formed patty.
********************************************
Spray a skillet with canola or safflower oil and heat, using medium/low; the burger will be very large and you don't want to cook it too fast. When heated, add your burger and cook until brown and firm and turn over, and cook until done.
Internal temperature should be 165 degrees.
********************************************
Serve on a hamburger bun, pita pocket, flavored tortilla, with lettuce, tomatos, etc, or alone with a salad.

Serves 1

    Very good. I ate it with a salad. No additions or deviations. It was moist and stayed together as a burger should. - 4/12/13

    Wonderful. I used fresh garlic instead of powder. The aroma as it cooked was a wonderful bonus. - 8/16/10
