Curried Turkey Burgers

Adapted from Parade Magazine

1 t olive oil
1/2 C chopped red or yellow onion
2 t curry powder
1 lb ground chicken or turkey
1 small egg or two egg whites
1/2 C breadcrumbs (or more, to desired consistency)
1/4 C peeled and grated tart apple (Granny Smith or other), or unsweetened applesauce
1/4 C chopped mango chutney
2 scallions, very finely sliced
salt and pepper to taste
4 toasted hamburger buns

1. Sauté the onion in the oil over medium-low heat; cook for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low, add curry, and cook, stirring, for another minute. Remove to a bowl and cool.
2. Add all other ingredients to bowl (except burger buns, of course) and mix well. Form mixture into four patties about 1" thick
3. Cook over outdoor grill or on Foreman grill. If using a Foreman grill, cook about 10 minutes total; burgers will come out a little blackened, but will be properly cooked. If cooking on outdoor grill, cook over medium heat for 5 minutes per side, until cooked through.
4. Serve on buns; additional mango chutney makes a good topping.

Serves four; about 400 calories per serving (including bun), about 10 g fat
