Servings: Serves 4–6 or makes 1 loaf
Ingredients 1 1/2 pounds ground organic free-range turkey1/4 cup minced onion3/4 cups coarsely ground oatmeal (put oatmeal in blender and pulse until the oatmeal is the consistency of bread crumbs)1 egg1/4 cup minced celery1/4 cup milk or soy milk or stock1 teaspoon sea salt1 clove minced garlic 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix all the ingredients well. Form into 1-inch thick patties and place in a lightly oiled skillet. Cook the burgers over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until browned and crispy. Flip the burgers carefully and cook for 5 minutes longer, or until golden brown and a thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F and the meat is no longer pink. Serve the burgers hot.
If making a loaf, form into a loaf and pack into a lightly oiled 8x4-inch baking pan. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until the loaf begins to pull away from the pan.
