Pumpkin Ale Turkey Burgers

We had some Sam Adams Pumpkin Ale that came in a variety pack that my husband didn't care for. I decided to put it to good use!
These are also fantastic with beef!
Serve with The Best Oven Fries!

1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1/3 cup pumpkin ale
1/4 cup onion, finely minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 TB worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste

combine all and mix well
(If you feel it is too loose, feel free to add a bit of bread crumbs to firm it back up, ground turkey can vary in its moisture content quite a bit....maybe even start adding the beer in smaller increments if needed)

Form into 6 patties and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes(this also helps them firm up a bit)

Throw them on the grill or under the broiler and cook until an internal temp of 165....(seriously , get a meat thermometer, you wont be disappointed!)
Be gentle! They are delicate burgers. Make sure it is cooked well on one side before you turn it and avoid playing with it as much as possible.

Toast some buns and top them as desired and dig in.....
