Oh-So Amazing Open Faced Turkey Burg

13 Aug

This classic BBQ burger makeover pairs wonderfully with my sinless sweet potato fries, or a small side salad! While everyone else is downing multiple double decker beef patties, enjoy your healthy remake with a smirk . . .

-1 container lean ground turkey
-1/2 c. red onion, minced
-1 egg
-2 TB olive oil
-2 TB oregano
-2 TB basil
-1 TB garlic powder
-1 TB Old Bay seasoning
-1 tsp. salt
-1 TB pepper
-2 whole wheat buns*, separated into 4 slices

*Use brown rice wraps or gluten free bread if you follow a gluten free diet, or just skip the bun completely!

1. Mash up turkey with your hands as if you were making meatballs, and combine all other ingredients. Mix well.

2. Separate into 4 generous burger shaped patties.

3. Heat your BBQ grill or George Foreman, and grill for 6 to 7 minutes on each side!

*Hot Tip: If you’d like, top your burger with a thin slice of mozzarella cheese and a sauce made up of plain low fat yogurt, dill and lemon as a substitute for fatty mayo!
