Introduction

A mixture of Italian and Latin flavors make this turkey burger delicious. This is one of those "full meal burgers"--it has some veggies and it's really filling. Some may balk at the fat and calories, but avocado fat is good for you! Think of this as your gourmet burger fix, and it seems more reasonable!

Ingredients

    19.2 oz package 93/7 lean ground turkey
    2 T shredded parmesan
    2 T bread crumbs
    1 t hot sauce
    1/2 t chili powder
    salt and pepper
    1 c frozen tri-color pepper mix (or 1 c chopped bell peppers)
    1 avocado
    4 slices Tuscan-style bread (Trader Joe's Tuscan pane)--sliced in half

Directions

Mix the turkey, parmesan, bread crumbs, hot sauce and chili powder together and form into 4 patties. Place on a broiler pan and salt and pepper each side. Arrange the peppers around the burgers and broil, about 5 minutes on each side, until turkey is done.

Meanwhile, peel the avocado and salt and pepper it to make a spread.

Pull the burgers out, then toast the bread for a minute or two.

To assemble, place a slice of bread on four plates. Top each with a turkey burger, then divide the peppers among them. Put a big dollop of avocado spread on each sandwich and top with the other half slice of bread. Makes four big burgers. Mostly good fat :-) and a nice dose of veggies.
