Turkey burgers can taste every bit as good as hamburgers. Don’t believe me? Try this recipe:
Makes 6 burgers. Serving Size: about 3.5 oz
¼ cup cornmeal
2 Tbsp. onion, minced
1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
½ tsp. paprika
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dry mustard
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar Splenda® Blend
1 ¼ lb. ground 99/1 turkey
2 Tbsp. BBQ Sauce
½ red onion, sliced into rings
6 sliced Colby Jack cheese, low fat
6 whole wheat buns
1. In a small bowl, combine cornmeal, minced onion, cilantro, paprika, garlic powder, dry mustard, cayenne pepper and brown sugar Splenda®. In a medium bowl, combine ground turkey with 2 Tbsp. BBQ sauce. Mix the dry ingredients into the turkey until thoroughly combined.
2. Shape into six 3.5 oz. patties. Place burgers and onion rings on preheated grill. Cook burgers on one side for 5 minutes then flip to the other side and cook for another 5 minutes.
3. Place the grilled onions on top of the burgers and top with cheese. If on an outside grill, close the lid until the cheese melts. If on a stovetop grill, place burger under the broiler until the cheese is melted.
