Turkey or Beef Lunch Burgers

I LOVE eating these burgers… especially on busy days. I make a huge batch up for the week, and at each lunch I feel like having them, I’ll eat 2 or 3 depending on my hunger

2 lbs ground beef, turkey, chicken or a mixture of them

Old Bay Seasoning, 1 TBS

Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

1-2 cups pureed bean either canned or homemade.

2 TBS Worcestershire sauce

Any or all of the following veggies chopped 1/8 cup each if you use 3 or more otherwise, use a 1/2 cup if using only 1 or 2. … carrots, onions, green onions, black olives, ortega chilis, roasted red peppers, fresh red peppers, pureed frozen corn… or any veggie you love.

Add all of the ingredients together in a large bowl, and either with bare clean hands, or gloved hands squish them all together until very well mixed, and the veggies are evenly distributed.

Line a baking sheet with a one inch lip all around with foil.

Make patties and place them on the pan. They can touch, it’s okay… they shrink while they bake. So make them kinda medium sized for a small patty, and kinda large for a medium patty.

Bake at 400 until done to your taste.
Cool them on an absorbent towel or paper towel and package them up for the week… they store great in the fridge, and microwave up in 30 seconds.

My “bread” is lettuce leaves, or two pieces of grilled or broiled eggplant, and I top my burger with mustard, ketchup, pickles, roasted red peppers, pepperoncini, avocado… you name it!!!

Enjoy! Let me know if you try these!!!
