Pan Seared Turkey Burgers

 Yield: 6 servings

What You'll Need:
1 lb ground lean turkey meat
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp hickory flavored liquid smoke
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp carom seeds (a.k.a.- ajwan, ajwain, bishop's weed)
pinch lemon pepper

What To Do:
Mix all ingredients together in medium sized bowl.  Divide into 6 parts, form patties (3/4" to 1" thick).  Lightly spray non-stick frying pan with olive oil, heat over medium/high (closer to medium) heat.  Cook patties for 5 minutes, covered on one side. Flip and cook for 3 minutes uncovered. Cook an additional 2 minutes covered, or until juices are clear and patties are thoroughly cooked. You can reduce the heat to slightly lower than medium, if the patties start to dry up towards the last 2-3 minutes of cooking.
