Turkey Burger Recipe (with a cheater Mexican twist because of the pre-made toppings!):
Ingredients (makes 4 burgers):
1lb lean ground turkey (we used 99% fat free)
1/4 cup chopped vidalia onion
3 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
Freshly cracked sea salt and pepper to taste
Desired toppings: we used heirloom tomatoes, guacamole and salsa
*We also had two random bison patties sitting around in the freezer, so we decided to make those, too...separately from the turkey burgers. Did you know that bison is incredibly lean? We added freshly cracked salt, pepper and 1tbsp of reduced-fat mayonnaise to that mixture. I know it sounds weird, but the mayonnaise adds serious moisture without a lot of fat and without actually tasting like mayonnaise...the only picture we snapped of a cooked burger (below) is the bison one but it looks yummy!
Sliced heirloom tomatoes
Prepackaged all-natural guacamole (normally, I make my own, but there were no ripe avocados today...so, we made a sacrifice in homemade-ness for the greater good of the recipe working out)
Fresh salsa (we also bought this but it is SO easy to make with some minced tomato, onion, jalapeno, vinegar, garlic and cilantro)
- Mix ground turkey, onion, garlic, Worcestershire Sauce, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl
Form the mixture into 4 patties
Top with desired toppings and ENJOY! Boy, were they big and juicy and all charred up from the grill! The burger below is actually one of the bison burgers but we topped them the same way.
SOMEBODY even cheated and added a little cheese...kind of ruins the healthy idea but it is sooooo good on a hot burger!
