   It’s necessary to highly season turkey because the meat itself tastes
   rather mild. Yet, once ground turkey is cooked up, it’s delicious. To
   do a taste test on the mixture, make a little patty the size of a
   silver dollar and pan-fry it in a nonstick skillet. This way you can
   adjust your seasonings to taste. A mayonnaise-type dressing and
   avacado make perfect toppings.
   
   1. Prepare hot coals for grilling.
   
   2. Place the ground turkey in a bowl and mix well with the scallions,
   bell pepper, garlic, cilantro and spices. Season to taste with salt
   and pepper. Gently form into 4 patties.
   
   3. Grill patties over hot coals, 3 from heat, for about 5-6 minutes
   per side.
   
   4. If desired, spread buns with mayonnaise-type dressing and top
   burgers with avacado slices. Serve immediately.
