Turkey Burgers


We are trying our hardest to eat healthier in this house.  So I have been trying new healthy recipes that mimic some fattier favorites.  Being that it is grilling season we tried out Turkey Burgers last night.  I must say it was a huge success.  I personally liked them better than burgers made with beef!  After looking at a million different recipes and doing a little research, I ended up just throwing together my own concoction.  So here it is... now go heat up that grill!

Turkey Burgers
(4 burgers)

1 pound ground turkey (Don't use turkey breast, it will be too dry)
1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
4 t Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 egg
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Mix all this together and form into 4 patties.  Cook on grill until cooked through. (You may want to brush your grill with olive oil to keep them from sticking)

Put cheese on them for the last minute to melt it. (we used Provolone)

Put on a bun and top as desired.

*we only used 2 patties so I just wrapped the other 2 in plastic wrap and put them in the freezer. They freeze great and you can cook them from frozen for a super quick meal.
