Turkey Burgers with Avocado Aioli

Let me just tell you that Hadley has asked if we could have these burgers for dinner every night since I made them. If that doesn’t tell you how good they are, I don’t know what will! They were so.stinkin.good. Seriously.

Hamburger buns or big lettuce leaves
1 lb Ground Turkey
1 ripe avocado
1 Tbsp Sour Cream
1 Tbsp Mayo
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/3 c chopped seeded tomato
Salt and Pepper
Alfalfa Sprouts

Place half of the avocado in the bowl and mash it as if you were making guacamole. Add the sour cream, mayo, lime juice, cumin and garlic powder and stir to combine. Dice the other half of the avocado and add it in, but don’t mash it. Then add the tomato and salt and stir gently. You could add in cilantro or a jalapeño here if you wanted as well.

After making the turkey patties, sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Cook the turkey patties on the grill or however you like to cook your burgers. Toast the buns for about a minute on the grill as well.

Place sprouts on the bottom of your bun (or lettuce leaf) and lay your turkey patty on top. Load it with a quarter of the Avocado mixture and the other half of your bun. I am also the mom that serves broccoli with burgers, but it was delicious and there were no leftovers.

I made mine with large lettuce leaves, and it was just so amazingly good. Light and summery, but different than our regular old burgers. Although, this might become our regular old burger!!!
