"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

2 pounds ground turkey, not too lean
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 cup bread crumbs or seasoned croutons
2 T. Italian parsley
1 T. fresh chopped sage
1 T. fresh chopped thyme
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground pepper
1 egg

In medium fry pan, melt butter, add celery and onion cooking until gold brown, or about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. In a large bowl, mix ground turkey, bread crumbs, parsley, sage, thyme, poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, egg, and celery and onion. Form divide mixture into four portions, preparing 1 inch thick patties out of each. Grill burgers over medium high heat turning every 4-5 minutes. Serves 3 to 4.

Tip: While it's great to serve a healthy Turkey Burger, be careful not to serve an undercooked one. Unlike a beef burger, rare is bad. To help in this regard, have a nice cranberry sauce, sliced avocado or chipotle may to serve over the top if you happen to overcook yours a bit.
