Sun Dried Tomato & Basil Turkey Burgers.

Having lived on a farm always I've eaten a lot of beef burgers. A lot of beef in general. But, if an effort to eat a little healthier and expand my horizons I sometimes buy ground turkey. And with my ground turkey I like to creat these:

Sun Dried Tomato & Basil Turkey Burgers
(adapted from Taste of Home)

1/4 cup fat-free mayo
2 tablespoons dried basil, divided
1/4 cup milk
3 dry packed sun dried tomatoes
1 tablespoon dried onions
1 tablespoon dry bread crumbs
dash of salt
dash of pepper
1 pound ground turkey
Allow tomatoes to sit in water until they regain some moisture.

Combine the mayo and 1 tablespoon of basil. Cover and refridgerate.

Combine the milk, onion, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and remainining basil. Chop the tomatoes into small pieces and add to mixture. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into four patties.

Grill until done.

Serve on buns with basil mayo. Add a lettuce and fresh tomato. Enjoy!!
