I flippin’ love zucchini. Love it. Love it. Love it. I love the taste. I love how versatile it is (savory? sweet? whatever!). I even love cutting into it—so smooth and easy.
This here zucchini came from a farm stand down the road, and I knew exactly where it was headed—into zucchini chicken burgers. I’ve had this idea for a few months now for a zucchini-loaded burger. Zucchini is tasty, but it is also an incredible way to add moisture to foods. That’s why it works so well in zucchini bread!
I had this idea that you could maybe mix shredded zucchini with a leaner meat (like ground chicken or ground turkey breast) to add back in some moisture. And, oh my, I was so right. It’s juicy, flavorful, and super tasty. Cha-ching!
I topped my burgers with a lemon-feta mayo, some homegrown tomato slices, and a big ole piece of red onion (also from the garden). You can feel free to dress your burgs however makes you happy, but I highly recommend trying out the mayo—I’ve included the recipe below—it’s kinda insane. Enjoy.
