What you need: (Makes 12 little sandwiches)

12 little sandwich buns

1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

1/2 tsp butter

Cheese slices

Cream ranch sauce

Fresh cilantro

Some red onion rings

For the patty:

2 lb ground turkey

1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 tsp finely chopped spicy hot green chilies

1/4 cup finely diced red onion

1 egg

1 tsp ginger garlic paste

1/4 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Salt to taste

In a bowl, mix all the patty ingredients together, chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Divide them into 12 patties.

Warm up a skillet on medium heat, add in the butter; toast the inside of the sandwiches to a golden brown. Set them aside on a plate. In the same pan, cook the patties.

Coat them with bread crumbs on both sides, and on medium heat, let them brown to about 4 minutes on each side.

While these are cooking, sprinkle in the red onions and let them caramelize a bit in the skillet.

Arrange the burgers anyway you like, and poke a toothpick to hold them all together. Serve hot, enjoy!
