Pocket bread, yogurt sauce, and turkey burger.

Among the best bargains found regularly in the supermarket is poultry. More delicious, healthful ways to cook it are always in order, and Sunset addresses this need in its new Poultry Cook Book (Sunset Publishing Corporation, Menlo Park, Calif., 1991; $7.95; if ordering direct, add $2.50 for shipping).

Chicken and turkey get most of the attention in this 128-page, all-color publication by the editors of Sunset Magazine arid Sunset Books. Chapters focus on the many convenient ways you can now purchase these birds: whole, cut-up, by individual part, ground, and cooked. Special features include recipes for more costly birds such as duck, quail, squab, goose, and pheasant.

Ground turkey-now popular as an alternative to ground beef-is featured in recipes like this one.
 Turkey Burgers with Tomato Salad
Preparation time: About 15 minutes
1 medium-size red onion
1 teaspoon salad oil
1/2 pound ground turkey
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
 Fresh-ground pepper
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or
 sherry vinegar
2 whole-wheat pocket breads (each
 about 6 in. wide)
1 small about 6 oz.) cucumber,
 peeled and thinly sliced
2 small tomatoes, sliced
 Yogurt sauce (recipe follows)
Cut onion in half horizontally. Chop half;
thinly slice remaining half, separate into
rings, and set aside.
 In a 12- to 14-inch nonstick frying pan,
combine chopped onion and oil. Stir often
over medium-high heat until onion is
limp, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
Let cool slightly; mix with turkey, cumin,
and a generous sprinkling of pepper
Shape mixture into 2 patties.
Place patties in pan and cook over
medium-high heat to brown both sides,
about 8 minutes total; turn once. Drain
and discard fat. Add water and vinegar.
Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until almost
all liquid has evaporated and patties
are no longer pink in center (cut to test),
about 7 minutes.
 Meanwhile, wrap pocket breads in foil
and place in a 250' oven until hot, about
15 minutes. In a bowl, mix together cucumber,
onion rings, tomatoes, and half
the yogurt sauce.
 Offer turkey patties with pocket breads,
cucumber mixture, and remaining yogurt
sauce; assemble elements into sandwiches.
