AWESOME Turkey Burgers -

I'm not real big on Turkey burgers - I like beef.

BUT - gave these a try last night - and they were AWESOME. The kids loved them - especially when I cut the first one in half for my 5yo (they are really nice size burgers) and the cheese oozed out from the inside. My 5yo ate and entire burger, and then 1/2 of another. And he's usually not a big eater. Yes, they were outside playing in the pool most of the day - but still

I tripled this recipe and made 12 nice size burgers

8 ounces ground turkey breast 99% lean
1 cup shredded zucchini
2/3 cup panko
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
3 TBS taco or enchilada sauce
1 egg white
1.5 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
4 TBS Monterey Jack Cheese
4 hamburger buns

Heat grill. Combine turkey, zucchini, panko, onion, 1 TBS of taco sauce, egg white, cumin and salt in large bowl. Divide into 8 balls. Flatten 4 balls into patties (about 3.5 inches around and 1/4 inch thick) Place 1 TBS chhese in the center of each patty. Shape remaining turkey mixture into 4 more patties, place on top and press edges to seal. Spray the grill grate right before cooking. Cook at medium-high for about 10 minutes, turning and brushing with remaining 2 TBS sauce halfway through (I didn't brush mine)
