Pear Turkey Burgers

Ground turkey not smothered in cheese or hidden in soup always left me with something to be desired. It just came out 'blah' to me, but I wanted to love it for its health value. When my hairdresser shared with me that she ate a turkey burger for lunch almost everyday, I was a little surprised how she didn't grow tired of such a bland diet. I made a point to ask her the recipe once we decided we were going to focus on eating healthier this year and I finally got around to making the recipe with a few adjustments, of course. They did not disappoint! In fact, my burger loving husband said he wouldn't mind them being added to our regular rotation! If you love turkey burgers or are sampling some healthier options for your family, try these out. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Pear Turkey Burgers

1 lb. Ground Lean Turkey
1 Pear chopped
1 Small onion chopped
1 Tbs. Ground Flaxseed
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg

Mix all ingredients together and make patties to desired size (I found the bigger patties held together better than the smaller ones, so go ahead and make quarter pounders).

Grill until cooked about 4 minutes per side. I used a grilling pan prepped with coconut oil.

Serve as traditional burgers or on a bed of rice and/or salad. 
They are also great with a bit of avocado. The warmth of the burger "melts" the avocado a bit so you have a nice creamy replacement for cheese.
