I told you last week I wanted to try these chicken avocado burgers with a glass of wine and a porch on the next warm Sunday.
Ah, ask and you shall receive! Last weekend rolled around us and brought a beautiful 73-degree Sunday. And so, we burgered!
Chris and I were inspired by the Laughing Spatula's, but actually changed them quite a bit due to a few major speed bumps:
1. I don't have a grill. We did, however, use my Calphalon grill and then sit on the deck. So it was close.
2. Trader Joe's didn't have ground chicken, so we used turkey.
3. I don't eat garlic
4. Or panko
5. Trader Joe's didn't have ripe avocados, so we used what I had left.
And yet, they were still amazing. Truly. As a turkey burger connoisseur I consider myself pretty seasoned at evaluating them and I'd give these a top rating in moisture and flavor. I highly recommend them :)
Parmesan Turkey Avocado Burgers...
1. lb. ground turkey
1/2 ripe avocado
1/2 c. grated parmesan
Spices to taste (we used salt, pepper, cayenne and onion powder. I think cumin would also be a nice add if you're feeling TexMexish.)
Mix turkey and mashed avocado in bowl
Add in parm and mix well
Roll into ~10 small patties or five large patties
Grill (or grill pan at 325) until pink is gone (~8 minutes)
Top with pickles, arugula, tomato, mustard and ketchup if you're me. Or anything else you love if you're you :)
We ate ours with a salad and baked sweet potatoes and couldn't have been happier while we sat on the deck with the warm air and a glass of white wine.
Next up? I think these homemade popsicles are calling my name.
