Italian Turkey Burgers

We have had a package of italian-spiced ground turkey in the freezer for a while. The Spouse wanted to use it for eggplant lasagna, but then decided that he'd rather that be vegetarian. So I suggested turning it into burgers instead. We used english muffin bread instead of buns, which provided a nice crunch. And I had some tomato-basil cheese on hand to add a nice zing.

Italian Turkey Burgers

1 lb italian-spiced ground turkey
1/4 cup kalamata olives
garlic powder
balsamic vinegar
1 red onion, sliced

Finely diced kalamata olives in a food processor. Fold into ground turkey, along with garlic powder and a dash of balsamic vinegar. Form into paties.

Grill paties and onions over medium-high heat until done (about 10 minutes). Add cheese if desired and let melt. Toast buns/bread during the last half of cooking. Serve immediately.
