Turkey Burgers

3/4 lb ground turkey OR chicken
1 medium zucchini, grated (A tip for grating zucchini and carrot; cut off the bottom but leave the top so you have something to hold on to as you're grating and getting to the end. It'll save your fingers from the grater!)
1 medium carrot, grated
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3/4 t dried thyme
3/4 t kosher salt
1/4 t black pepper
1 egg
3 T olive oil
8 slices crusty bread
4 leaves Boston lettuce
4 T mayonnaise
2 t fresh lemon juice

In a large bowl, combine the turkey, zucchini, carrot, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper and egg. Form the mixture into 4 patties. Heat 1 T of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties, turning once, until no trace of pink remains. (I find it takes quite a while to get them to cook all the way through, just keep the heat at medium and put a lid on the skillet if necessary.) Meanwhile, place the bread on a baking sheet and brush with the remaining oil. Broil until golden brown and crisp, about 1 1/2 minutes. Combine the mayonnaise with the lemon juice and serve with the burgers.
