juicy turkey burgers

I wasn't always a fan of turkey burgers because they can be dry and unflavorful. However, this recipe is the exact opposite. I was a little iffy about using 99% fat free turkey meat for these burgers but I decided to go for it and am so glad I did because these burgers are healthy and flavorful without the added fat. I made slammer-sized burgers (aka mini-burgers) and used lightly grilled, wheat dinner rolls as the buns. I love grilling because it is takes minimal effort and results in so much flavor. These turkey burgers are made with parmesan cheese, scallions, hot sauce and worcestershire...that's it! I decided to throw some caramelized onions onto my burgers (totally optional) with lettuce and tomato. I cooked the onions in a skillet on the grill and also grilled some corn on the cob. It was the perfect summer dinner.

Turkey Burgers
adapted from Martha Stewart 

1 package of ground turkey meat
1/2 c. shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 c. diced scallions (green onions)
2 tsp hot sauce (I like grace's hot pepper sauce)
1 1/2 tsp worcestershire 

for caramelized onions:
pour 1 tbsp of oil per onion in skillet and add in diced onions (2-4 whole onions). I used a yellow onion because I think they are sweetest but any kind of onion would work.
