Spicy Turkey Burgers

These burgers turned out really good. A hint of spice, a hint of sweet from the fresh carrot, and the zucchini and carrot really help to keep the meat moist, which ground turkey can often miss. Hope you enjoy. Plus, who can argue with some extra veggies getting throw into a food the kids might actually eat (and you could always melt some cheese on top if you want to hide it more for them)!
Spicy Turkey Burger
20 oz ground turkey
1 shredded carrot
½ shredded zucchini
2 tsp onion powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp garlic powder
2 tsp chili powder (or Cheyenne if you like more heat)
1 egg
Hot sauce to taste

Mix together all ingredients

Form into about 2.5 oz patties, or whatever size you like. Grill either outside or on a countertop unit (as we have become very comfortable with, thank you Pacific Northwest rain).
 You should get about 9 mini-burgers per batch if you do the small size.
Enjoy wrapped in romaine, topped with mustard, guacamole or any other topping you like. We had ours with some homemade Paleo Pickles and buttered carrots. Yummy.
Plenty leftover for Steven's lunch tomorrow!
