Turkey Burgers

This recipe is VERY popular in our family.  In attempt to be healthy, we switched to ground turkey instead of beef almost a year ago.  These burgers are very juicy.  If you prefer them a little dryer, reduce the amount of Dale's sauce.  We love turkey burger night!

~ 1 pound ground turkey (we use super lean)
~ 2 tbsp low-sodium Dale's Steak Seasoning sauce (usually by the marinade's, BBQ sauces, etc)
~ 1 tbsp Weber Gourmet Burger Seasoning
~ 2 1/2 tbsp breadcrumbs (we use this to stiffen up the meat mixture.  You can also use parmesan cheese)
~ 1 egg

1. Spray grate with cooking spray and heat your grill to around 400 degrees.
2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
3. Divide meat into 4 equal blobs and then form into patties.
    *We highly recommend investing in one of these thingies.  

We found ours at Wal-Mart but I've seen them in Bed, Bath, and Beyond or hanging from one those random things in the middle of the aisle at Publix.  They really do make the perfect burger.  Just spray them with cooking spray really well between each pattie forming.

4. Reduce heat to low and place burgers on grill.  After about 5 minutes, flip.  Check again 3-4 minutes later and remove from heat when cooked to desired done-ness.

The patties that this recipe makes contain around 185 calories, not including the bun or condiments.  If you're looking to keep your calorie count low, you could use Arnold brand Sandwich Thins.
