Ingredients

1/2 c
spelt bulgur
1/2 c
boiling water
1 1/2 c
ground turkey breast
1/4 c
1/4 c plus 2 tbsp egg substitute (or 1 egg)
1
yellow or red onion minced for mix
1 1/2 tsp
dried marjoram
1/2 tsp
sea salt or to taste
1/4 tsp
freshly grd white pepper
1 Tbsp
spicy mustard (or bbq or thousand island)
8
spelt buns (recipe on my home)
1/2 c
lowfat mayonaise, expellor pressed oil and cage free eggs)
8
lettuce leafs or choice of greens or sprouts
8
slices of onions if you please
8
sliced tomato as an option
1/2 c
pickle relish or pickle slices

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the bulgur in a 2-quart heatproof bowl. Add the boiling water, and set the mixture aside for 5 minutes.
2
Add turkey, egg or substitute, onion, marjoram, salt, pepper, and mustard to the bulgur mixture and mix well.
3
Using floured hands, form the mixture into 8 patties as thin as possible for a flatter size meat. Coat a ceramic skillet with organic olive oil and/or spray, and cook the patties over medium heat for 7 minutes on each side, or until browned and crisp. Transfer the patties to a cookie sheet to drain, works well, or a plate, because the oil makes the burger taste better, no need to drain on paper towels.
4
Cut each spelt bun in half. Spread the bottom half of each bun with condiments of your choice. Follow with a patty burger, and remaining vegetables. Serve!
