Teriyaki Turkey Burgers

These are fun twist on the regular hamburger. Mike and I found this recipe when we were first married, and have since hooked our kids onto them, too. I normally serve them with fruit and veggies/dip, but I've done baked french fries/sweet potato fries with them before, and those go great with it, too. Sorry about the picture-it tastes much better than it looks!

Teriyaki Turkey Burgers
Serves 4

1 lb. ground turkey
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions (about 3 whole)
1/4 cup crushed pineapple, drained
2 cloves garlic, minced (or can do 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)

Combine all ingredients and mix well (but don't over-mix). The mixture will be moist. Cover and refrigerate for several hours (you don't have to do this step, but I think it makes the flavors come together more). Lightly spray a grill pan with non-stick spray and heat over medium heat. Scoop meat mixture in a half-cup measuring cup and drop carefully onto heated grill. Pat down and cook 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Top as desired.

Cheese (I used provolone tonight because I had it leftover)
Red onions, sliced (grilled is yummy)
Pineapple slices (grilled is yummy, again) or crushed pineapple
Bell pepper, sliced
Tomatoes, sliced
