Turkey Burger Recipe - the best ever!

We had these last night and they are fabulous. I changed it just a little bit from a Rachel Ray version.

1 lb ground turkey
1 egg
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 t salt
2 t cumin
1/4 t turmeric
1 t paprika
1 t coriander
1/4 t cayenne
1 t curry powder
1 small onion finely chopped, or grated
1 large garlic clove, pressed or minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or cilantro leaves
1/2 lemon juice and zest

I like to mix all of the spices all together first to be sure they are evenly distributed throughout the burger. Then mix all of the ingredients together and form turkey burger patties. Grill for 5 minutes per side. I served them on whole wheat buns, with mayo, barbecue sauce and bread and butter pickles. Rachel baby serves them with 1/4 C mango chutney (or any), 1/4 C plain Greek yogurt and one sack of shredded cabbage -- mix together to make this slaw, and serve inside a pita bread, or (not as messy) on a whole wheat bun. Eat up and enjoy! Yumola.
