In a pan over high heat add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Heat until oil starts to lightly smoke. Add the mushrooms. Cook until lightly brown, stirring frequently. Add 4 tablespoons shallots and season with salt and pepper to taste. Let cool and reserve. In a mixing bowl, add the mushrooms, 2 cups of cooked turkey, tomatoes, chives, bread crumbs, 4 remaining tablespoons shallots, thyme and eggs. Mix well to incorporate. Divide mixture into 4 portions and shape into burgers. Lightly coat burgers with fresh bread crumbs. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, add burgers and cook until golden brown (approximately 2 minutes on each side.) Serve with a bun and French fries.
