Blueberry turkey burgers

Rain or shine, fire up the barbecue and throw this burger on for a quick and healthy meal.

Now, you can have as many burgers as you'd like, guilt-free. (Which helps if you're going to eat a bucket of fries with them.) These turkey burgers are light, lean and packed with B.C. blueberries. 

Blueberry Turkey Burgers

1 lb lean ground turkey
3/4 cup B.C. blueberries (fresh or frozen), roughly chopped
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 large egg
1 tbsp whole grain mustard
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
1 tsp finely minced garlic
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp vegetable oil
3 tbsp barbecue sauce
4 whole grain burger buns

Preheat barbecue to 350°F/175°C.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except oil, barbecue sauce and buns, and divide into four 3/4-inch thick patties. Keep refrigerated until ready to cook.

Grease the grill with an oiled paper towel. If cooking over stovetop, heat oil in a heavy bottom pan set over medium-high heat.

Place patties on the grill (or in pan), and cook for approximately 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Flip over, reduce the heat to medium-low and finish cooking for another 5 to 7 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F/75°C.

Brush with barbecue sauce and serve on buns with condiments as desired.
