I’m sharing a recipe that I’ve found to be tride and true! I didn’t create this recipe, like I’ve mentioned on the recipe tab of my blog, I do adapt some recipes, but I really just want to try recipes for you to try out in your kitchen. I tweaked this a little bit but SkinnyTaste is the creator of this great summer recipe.
The bruschetta only take a few minutes to throw together but I like to cover it and place it in the fridge so the flavors have the opportunity to blend. Chop your onion, basil and tomatoes, throw in a bowl and season with salt and pepper (it looks crazy seasoned above but I just hadn’t stirred it yet). Toss with balsamic and olive oil and you are good to go!Tomatoes, basil and zucchini really make this recipe pop so try to get the freshest that you can.
This zucchini came from my in-laws garden so it was fun to pop this in our recipe!
I added a little lemon juice into the turkey mixture and added some old bay to the patties because turkey burgers tend to get a little dry or not have as much flavor as beef burgers so I like to add a little something to them.
1/4 of an onion, chopped
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt & pepper
2 medium vine ripe tomatoes
2 small cloves garlic, minced
approx 8 fresh basil leaves, chopped
approx 8 mozzarella balls , diced
Turkey zucchini burgers:
1lb lean ground turkey
1 medium zucchini, grated
1/4 cup seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp lemon juice
salt & pepper

1) Toss all the bruschetta ingredients together, except for the mozzarella. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
2) Mix grated zucchini and turkey in a bowl with breadcrumbs, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
3) Make 6 patties from mixture. Gently sprinkle Old Bay seasoning on each side of the formed patty.
4) Grill burgers on grill until they reach 165 degrees F.
5) Drop in mozzarella to the brushetta and serve with bunless burger!
