When you make turkey burgers from scratch, you get to control the seasoning—since turkey is a blank canvas, the spices and salt level can make or break the taste of the final burger. For this recipe, chili powder adds a ton of flavor with a blend of garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried chilis. Chopped onion ensures that the patty is flavorful but not bland or dry. Finally, the burger is topped with lime mayo and sliced avocado. Once you try it alongside the seasoned potato wedges, you might never return to traditional beef burgers. Ingredients Turkey Burgers 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon chili powder ½ teaspoon kosher salt ½ teaspoon black pepper 1 pound ground turkey (preferably dark meat) ½ cup finely chopped yellow onion ½ cup mayonnaise 1 teaspoon lime zest, plus 2 Tbsp. fresh juice (from 1 large lime) 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted 1 avocado, sliced 4 Bibb lettuce leaves Potato Wedges 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, cut lengthwise into ½-in.-long wedges 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon ground pepper Directions Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss potatoes with 3 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Arrange skin side down in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Roast, stirring once halfway through, until tender and crispy, 35 to 40 minutes Meanwhile, stir together turkey, onion, and remaining 1 teaspoon chili powder and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, then form into scant ¾-inch-thick patties. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high.
