SUSTAINABLE EATING - Leftover Turkey Burgers

Bored of leftover turkey sandwiches?  Why not try these healthy turkey burgers.


4 tablespoons of olive oil
1 green and 1 red pepper finely chopped
6 scallions finely chopped or red onion
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey or fresh turkey meat
2 medium eggs slightly beaten
2 tablespoons of parsley chopped
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Colorful chopped onions and peppers being sauteed

In  a food processor, finely grind the leftover turkey (white and dark meat).
In a small pan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, saute' scallions and peppers (about 6 to 10 minutes).
Add the pepper and scallion mixture into the ground turkey.  Mix well.  Add the eggs and parsley and continue to mix well.
Place the breadcrumbs on a piece of wax paper.  Take enough of the turkey mixture to make a burger.  Place the burger on the breadcrumbs and press lightly.  Turn over and do the same.
In a non-stick frying pan, add the additional oil and saute' the burgers few at a time, turning once with a spatula. Approximately 10 minutes. Serve.
