Burger ingredients: buns, cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, ketchup, etc.
1tablespoonlime juicefrom 1/2 lime
1/2teaspoonolive oil(optional, use only if your avocado is not very ripe)
1very small garlic cloveminced
1/4teaspoonsaltor adjust to taste
Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350F.
Saute the chopped onion in about 1/2 tablespoon oil for a few minutes until the onion starts softening and browning. Or skip this step and use a teaspoon of onion powder instead.
Combine all the ingredients for the turkey burgers (ground turkey, egg, oatmeal, sauteed onion or onion powder, salt, pepper) into a bowl and mix well with a fork. Try not to mash the turkey, but to mix it instead. Using wet hands, form 4 - 6 burger patties. Wetting your hands between each burger will prevent the turkey from sticking to your hands.
Heat up some the olive oil (1-2 tablespoons) in your oven-safe pan, and carefully place the burgers into the pan. Cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until each side is nicely browned. The inside will still be raw at this point.
Transfer the browned burgers into the oven, and bake for 20 minutes, or until the inside of the burgers is fully cooked at 165F. Optional: top the burgers with cheese and put back in the oven for another minute, or until the cheese melts.
While the burgers are in the oven, prepare the guacamole: Mash the avocado in a bowl. Add the rest of the guacamole ingredients, and mix well.
Assemble your burger! Don't forget to toast the bun :)
The nutritional data estimated for this recipe is for 1 burger patty and guacamole, not including the bun or other toppings.
