Turkey Burgers!

I had never eaten a turkey burger before trying these. I was always too afraid that they would not measure up to their beef counterpart, but I had no reason to fear. Turkey burgers are amazing! I think that these are just as good as if not better than your average beef burger. They would be even better smashed between some Greek yogurt hamburger buns or hamburger buns for two.

Turkey Burgers
serves 6
1 lb ground turkey
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 egg
1 egg yolk
½ tsp garlic powder
Dash of cayenne pepper powder
Salt and pepper, to taste

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl with your hands until just combined. Divide the mixture into 8 balls, and press them flat into patties. Heat a pan over medium heat with about a teaspoon of oil in the bottom. Cook one to two of the burgers at a time, flipping once the bottom is golden brown. (It takes about 5 minutes per side.) Once the burgers are cooked fully through with no pink in the middle, remove them from the pan and repeat the process with the remaining patties.
