Dinner by Faith....

Nothing pleases me more than preparing wholesome, fresh food at home.  It is even better when the kids get involved.  Turkey burgers made by Faith tonight. 

Lean ground turkey
1/2 zuch
1/2 yellow squash
1/2 yellow onion
1/2 carrot
Plain bread crumbs
1 egg
Sea salt
Ground Pepper
Black Beans
Whole wheat/grain buns (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Add ground turkey, egg and bread crumbs in a bowl.  Cut veggies and place in food processor with a dash of EVOO and a splash of water.  Blend, remove and add to the turkey mixture.  Rinse black beans then add handful to food processor and blend.  Also remove and add to turkey mixture.  Knead all ingredients together and shape burger patties.

Saute the extra veggies with EVOO to and dash of seal salt and pepper.  Use as topping for your burger.

Add burgers to pan with oil just to sear both sides, then remove and place in baking dish and bake for about 20-30, until thoroughly cooked.  You can either use the whole grain bun OR just do a plain burger.  We have been doing so well lately with our meals that tonight we treated ourselves to the whole grain bun.  Top the burger with lettuce, tomato, onion, etc. and enjoy.

No side dish was needed for this meal tonight, as it had everything in it.  The kids ate it up and Faith did a wonderful job.
