Ginger Turkey Burgers

Ginger Turkey Burgers
& Spicy Ginger Dressing

1 1/3 lb. ground Turkey
1 Egg
¼ cup ground Almonds
½ cup chopped, roasted Pine Nuts
1 Tbsp. fresh minced Garlic
2 finely chopped Green Onions
1 Tbsp. fresh grated Ginger
Sea Salt & Pepper

1/3 cup Grapeseed Oil
1 Tb fresh grated Ginger
Garlic Powder & Cayenne Pepper (Powdered Chili or a splash of hot Pepper Sauce would probably be good, too!)

Toast pine nuts in skillet at medium-low heat. While pine nuts are toasting, break egg in a medium mixing bowl and add salt, pepper, and ginger.

Add chopped green onion and garlic to pine nuts in skillet—just long enough to warm them. Remove pan from heat.

While skillet cools, prepare salad or blend dressing.

Remove skillet ingredients to the mixing bowl.

Cover bottom of skillet with grapeseed oil, place on burner at medium-high heat.

Add turkey to mixing bowl, use both scrubbed hands to combine fully with other ingredients; form into patties and cook through.

Serve on Boston lettuce with tomatoes, cucumbers, grapes and thinly sliced cheddar.

Mmmm mmm mmm. These sound sooo good. Gotta put ginger and pine nuts on my shopping list and then rock and roll! Pine nuts made me think of a pesto burger...whirl garlic, pine nuts, parsley (or basil)and a little oil in the food processor, mix with egg, then work in turkey? Gotta stop...this is making me hungry!
