Italian Turkey Zucchini Burgers

This is one of my favorite recipes to make! I found this recipe on onceamonthmom.com, which has a ton of great make-ahead recipes. Not only are they delicious and nutritious, these turkey burgers are perfect to make ahead of time- I will double or triple the recipe and then after I have cooked them I will wrap them in parchment paper and put them in a ziplock bag and freeze them.  Then when I need a quick meal I will just pop one of the frozen turkey burgers into the microwave for 80 seconds or reheat them under the broiler.  Even my friend Kate's 10 year old son Brayden loves these!

Italian Turkey Zucchini Burgers

16 oz ground turkey breast
2 medium zucchini, grated
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed fennel
  • In a large bowl, mix the zucchini and all of the seasonings.  
  • Add in the turkey and mix well.  
  • Form into patties- I usually make the patties a little smaller than the size of my palm
  • Turn on broiler and broil patties for 7 minutes per side.
These are great on exekiel buns or whole wheat bread- I have even eaten them by themselves:)
