Hot Hamburger Remix: Lowfat Oven Baked Turkey Burgers and Gravy!

My husband is the King of Gravy.  When he picks a place to eat out, his main criteria is that they have gravy.   In trying to eat a healthier diet, we have had to remix some of his favorite foods to fit what is acceptable in fat content and calories. 
This is a super easy recipe for a wonderful comfort food supper.  We wrapped some small firm Yukon Gold potatoes in foil, and roasted them in the oven along with the Turkey Burgers and Gravy.  We could have also boiled a head of cauliflower, and mashed it with some hot chicken broth and salt and pepper to make a low carb substitute for mashed potatoes. 
My husband always has the option to have it "Diner Style",  on a couple pieces of bread. 
Along with the hot hamburgers and baked potatoes, we had a big green salad of romaine lettuce, tomatoes and some avocado.  I think this will be an often requested recipe in the future (which makes me happy, as Turkey Burgers haven't been received well in the past).  Cooking these burgers along with the lowfat gravy makes them come out moist and more flavorful.

Lowfat Oven Baked Turkey Burgers and Gravy

In a 9x13 baking pan, pry apart frozen raw turkey burgers and layer overlapping.  I put the whole bag into the microwave on defrost until they would come apart.  
In a medium size mixing bowl,  combine the following:
1 box/quart of chicken stock.
2 heaping T corn starch
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper, or Mrs. Dash to taste
Whisk together and pour over burgers.  Top with thinly sliced onions and bake at 375*F for one hour and fifteen minutes.  The burgers come out moist and delicious.

Leftovers reheat beautifully, or you can crumble leftover burgers, and add stew vegetables to burger and gravy,  to make a great second meal turkey stew.
