Open Faced Turkey Avocado Burgers

Okay. seriously... how GOOD does that look???? It was AMAZING! I made this for dinner last night and I want another for breakfast. Not sure how good a turkey burger would be for breakfast, but I wouldn't mind finding out!

The flavor of this burger is out of this world. The burger itself is ground turkey, parmesan cheese, garlic, and pesto. You could eat it by itself. But you put it on top of a slice of toasted Italian bread topped with an avocado sauce and then add spinach, tomato, FRESH mozzarella, and a little basil.... OH MY WORD! You have to try this!

If you don't want this as an open faced burger, it would be fantastic on a regular toasted bun with the same toppings.
