Turkey Burgers with Rosemary, Garlic, and Sun-dried Tomato

Me: "Oh no, the buns are moldy!"
Keith: "Serve it on bread. That's called Monte Carlo style, right?"
I don't think so, dear.

 This turkey burger recipe is easy and so full of flavor. I modified this recipe to make a smaller yield with more sun-dried tomato and fewer bread crumbs. I think too many bread crumbs give it a FrankenFood Chikken cutlet texture--what's REALLY in there?! But experiment to find a texture that you like. Cheese is optional.

Turkey Burger Ingredients:

1/2 lb. ground turkey
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tbsp dried rosemary
1 clove chopped garlic
2 tbsp chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1/2 tsp. salt

Lemon-Garlic Aioli Ingredients:
2 large dollops of mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 clove chopped garlic

Don't forget:
Cooking Spray
Bread or buns
Sliced tomato
Sharp cheddar cheese
Lettuce or spring mix or your other favorite green stuff

Make it happen! It so easy I can't believe I'm telling you what to do:
1. Combine the burger ingredients in a bowl.
2. Spray some cooking spray over your skillet and place it over medium-high heat. 
3. Scoop out some of the burger mixture, form it into a ball, and flatten the ball into a patty. Make three patties of equal size, and  fry 'em up.
4. Let the patties cook for 4 - 5 minutes on each side. While they cook, mix up the aioli and toast the buns.
5. If you want to use cheese, melt it on the patty during the last minute of cooking.
6. Assemble your burgers, and enjoy!
