Bella Turkey Burgers
Serve with baked chips if desired.

Servings: 6

2 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
8 ounce baby bella mushrooms, wiped clean and sliced
3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound lean ground turkey breast
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 tablespoons coarse grained mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
6 whole wheat buns
6 lettuce leaves (optional)
6 tomato slices (optional)
Chipotle Mayo (see below)

Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl. Pulse mushrooms in the food processor until finely chopped.

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and the mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Add to the breadcrumbs and let cool completely, 15 to 20 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Add ground turkey, egg, mustard, salt and pepper to the mushroom mixture; mix well with a potato masher. With dampened hands, form the mixture into six 1/2-inch-thick patties, using about 1/2 cup for each.

Oil the grill rack. Brush the patties with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Grill until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165 degrees F.) Split buns and toast on the grill for 30 to 60 seconds, if using. Serve burgers on buns, garnished with lettuce, tomato and chipotle mayo, if desired.

Chipotle Mayo:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 chipotles in adobo sauce
2 teaspoons adobo sauce
2 teaspoons lime juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Add all the ingredients to a food processor and puree. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
