Turkey Mushroom Burger

Quick, easy and oh so very healthy! Or as my brother says, so good and so good for you.

Last night's dinner consisted of a few mesclun greens and tomatoes still from the garden, seasoned with a little balsamic and a sprinkle of salt. Fresh brussel sprouts were steamed in the microwave for just a few minutes and then very lightly salted (we also like the taste of cider vinegar sprinkled about). And this favorite burger...

Turkey Mushroom Burger from Diana's kitchen

1 pound ground turkey breast
7-9 nice sized mushrooms, chopped (we like lots)
3 garlic cloves, diced
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (approximated since I don't measure but drizzle)
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Kosher salt, to taste

Mix all the above ingredients and divide into 4 patties. Fry in 1 tablespoon canola oil or olive oil on a non-stick frying pan and on medium to medium-high until heated/cooked through and nicely browned. Let them sit for just a few minutes.

If you like wine with your meal, you might try an inexpensive Pinot Noir, like a Mirassou. We sure hope you enjoy it.
