    Made it


    1. In large bowl, combine the turkey, zucchini, carrot, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper, and egg. Mix together with your hands...sounds kind of gross but it's the easiest way to get it all mixed evenly.
    2. Form into patties. I got 7 patties out of it but it can vary depending on how big you want your burgers.
    3. Heat 1 tbsp oil in large skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties, turning once on each side, until there is no longer any pink. This takes about 4-5 minutes each side depending on how big you make your patties.
