Mexican Turkey Burgers with Mango Salsa

Today I was going to make Thai turkey burgers, but then Alyssa came into the kitchen, saw the peanut butter out, and made a face.  I didn't have scallions anyway, so I switched my menu to Mexican turkey burgers instead; especially because the mango salsa could stay!  The Mexican burgers went over well, especially because I made up the recipe on the fly!

I went bun-less to cut some carbs, but it's a burger of course, use a bun if you want!

Mexican Turkey Burgers with Mango Salsa

1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 pound lean ground turkey (93/7)
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 egg

Mango Salsa:
1 mango, cubed
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
The juice of 1 lime
Salt and Pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients for the hamburgers in a large bowl.  Heat oil over medium heat.  Shape burgers into 4 patties.  Cook on one side for 4-5 minutes.  Meanwhile, combine all mango salsa ingredients in medium bowl.  Flip burgers.  Cook 3-4 minutes, or until cooked through.  Serve with mango salsa spooned over top.
