Ground turkey is the standard lean alternative to ground beef--and a good one--but burgers made from it can be dry and bland. These turkey burgers are particularly moist and flavorful because mushrooms are used to extend the ground meat.

Recipe Ingredients for Turkey-Mushroom Burgers

2 slice whole wheat bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
8 ounce white mushrooms, wiped clean
3 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 clove garlic, minced
1 pound turkey breast, lean ground
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 1/2 tablespoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Recipe Directions for Turkey-Mushroom Burgers

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Meanwhile, prepare Scallion-Lemon Mayonnaise, if using.

  4. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  5. Add ground turkey, egg, dill, 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.

  6. 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.) Meanwhile, split buns and toast on the grill for 30 to 60 seconds, if using. Serve burgers on buns, garnished with lettuce, tomato and Scallion-Lemon Mayonnaise, if desired.
