Savory Turkey Burger
- 1 lb organic ground turkey
- 1/2 C bread crumbs whole wheat
- 3 tbsp onion minced
- 2 tbsp ketchup
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 2 garlic cloves cloves, minced
- fresh ground black pepper to taste
- 6 kaiser rolls
For the Burgers
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (except hamburger buns). Shape the mixture into six even patties.
- Grill for about 5 minutes per side. Cooking time is approximate. You should always cook your turkey burgers to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
- Serve on buns with desired toppings. Try a slice or two of avocado instead of (or in addition to) the normal lettuce, tomato and onion!
- Alternatively, you could pan fry or broil these burgers
- To save even more on your carbs (or if you are gluten intolerant) substitute the regular burger buns for a low carb version, or english muffins, or even lettuce leaves.
