Turkey Burgers with Mango Salsa Recipe

Turkey Burgers with Mango Salsa

½ cup dry bread crumbs

1/3 cup reduced-fat garlic-herb spreadable cheese

2 green onions, chopped

4 ½ tsp. lemon juice

1 ½ tsp. lemon peel

1 tsp. minced fresh thyme or ¼ tsp. dried thyme

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. pepper

1 ½ lbs. lean ground turkey

6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split

¾ cup mango salsa

In a large bowl, combine the first (8) eight ingredients.  Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well.  Shape into (6) six patties.

Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.  Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 inches from the heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165 F. and juices run clear.

Grill buns, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes or until toasted.  Place burgers on bun bottoms.  Top with salsa.  Replace bun tops.          6 servings
