Grilled Turkey Burgers with Avocado

Another low-sodium recipe in my little mini-series of DASH-friendly dishes:  grilled turkey burgers with avocado.  Again, I utilized the salt-free seasoning to add flavor without sodium to our meat.  I decided to top with some avocado slices in place of traditional burger condiments that are higher in sodium (and I'm just obsessed with adding avocado to everything these days).  If you decide to opt for ketchup, look for low-sodium and low-sugar varieties to keep with the heart healthy diet plan.  Here's how Mama makes it:

Grilled Turkey Burgers with Avocado

Ingredients:  makes three 1/3 lb. burgers, 9 WW pts each
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 1/3 c. chopped onion
- 1 1/2 t. salt-free seasoning blend**
- 3 reduced-fat buns
- 1 avocado, sliced or mashed

**salt-free seasoning blend
- 2 T. black pepper
- 1 T. cayenne pepper (feel free to use less or leave it out if you want a milder version
- 1 T. paprika
- 1 T. onion powder
- 1 T. garlic powder
- 1 T. parsley
Mix together, store in a spice jar, use in place of salt on your favorite foods!


1.  In a medium bowl, combine turkey, onion, and seasoning.  Stir until combined.

2.  Form into three equal patties, then grill to perfection. Preheat grill to medium-high and cook about 4-5 minutes per side.

3. Place on a bun with 1/3 avocado, either sliced or mashed and spread on the bun.
