Lighter and less greasy than beef burgers, turkey burgers have long been perceived as the healthier choice. There's just one problem: they tend to be dry. Not so with the recipe below, which relies on a few added ingredients to ensure that these burgers are tender, juicy, and flavorful.
One key to making sure that your turkey burgers stay tender is to not overwork the meat. Mix just until the ingredients are incorporated, and use a light hand, making sure you don't overpack your burgers. They'll cook up tender and delicious.

1 pound ground turkey
2 scallions, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 hamburger buns, halved
1 avocado, sliced
4 slices tomato
Place the turkey into a mixing bowl. Form a slight well, then add the scallions, garlic, egg, Worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix with your hands to combine, taking care not to overwork the meat.
Divide the meat into four portions and press into patties about four inches wide and one inch thick.
Heat a skillet or grill over medium-high heat and add the oil. Cook the patties on both sides, flipping once. Cook approximately 7-8 minutes per side.
Remove the patties from the pan and set aside. Grill or toast the buns, and assemble the burgers with avocado slices and tomato.
