Tomatoes are so juicy and wonderful inside a sandwich, what about reversing that magic and putting them outside the sandwich? This recipe does just that. Topped with grilled onions and the sandwich goes to off-the-hook flavor levels. I find these are absolutely charming as smaller “sliders.” Use small tomatoes and small burgers for a big reaction from your friends and family.

Ingredients

Burger:

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 1 large zucchini, grated
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Toppings and wrap:

  • Tomatoes cut in half to use as a bun
  • Whole leaves of lettuce
  • Grilled onions

Instructions

  1. Heat your grill or griddle to medium.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the burger ingredients; mix well and form into equal sized patties.
  3. Grill burgers to medium or desired doneness.
  4. Serve with tomato bun and toppers.
