BBQ SNEAKY TURKEY BURGERS
turkey burgers smaller.jpgNo one will guess these are turkey burgers - they look and taste like beef! Adding my beautiful Purple Puree of blueberries and spinach not only gives a sweet moistness to turkey burgers which can often be dry – and combined with tomato paste (the ultimate healthy ready-made puree) and seasoning make these burgers look and taste like the real thing! I love these on whole grain English Muffins.

Makes 4 burgers
¼ cup Sneaky Chef Purple Puree (see Make-Ahead Recipe #1)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon chili each chili powder and onion powder
½ teaspoon salt and a few turns of freshly ground pepper
½ cup ground oats (ground in a food processor or blender) or ground flaxseed
1 pound ground turkey (ideally white meat, or a mix of light and dark meat)
4 whole grain English Muffins
Optional topping ideas: tomato slices, pickles, cheese, onions, mustard, ketchup

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the Purple Puree, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Add in the oats and ground turkey, mixing until combined (easiest to mix using your hands). Dampen hands and form into 4 equal sized balls, then gently press into patties, about ½ to ¾-inch thick.

Preheat an outdoor grill (or indoor grill pan) to medium-high and brush or wipe both the grill and both sides of the burgers generously with oil.

Grill burgers for 7 to 8 minutes on each side until cooked through and no longer pink inside (or until burgers reach internal temp of 160 degrees Fahrenheit).
Serve on warmed English Muffins (or hamburger buns) with optional toppings.
