The Perfect Turkey Burger

Recommended Posts

Combine 1 1/4 lb. ground turkey; 1/2 c. fat-free ricotta cheese; 2 scallions, finely chopped; 2 garlic cloves, minced, 2 tsp. Dijon mustard; 1 tst. Worcestershire sauce; 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper in a bowl just until blended. Shape into four patties. Spray a grill rack with nonstick spray and grill the burgers.

 

Points = 5

 

Tip-substitute 1/2 c. shredded zucchini for the ricotta and save 1/2 points value.

 

I used the zuccchini and they were delish!!

Bonnie...try Honeysuckle White Ground Turkey Breast and watch the points fall way down! I love it and use it all the time. I'll be trying your recipe with it!

Bonnie -- this sounds so dilish! Looks similar to one I saw on 30 minute meals. I remember they looked so big and juicy. This would be a great recipe for those memorial day bar-b-ques!

This looks delish...I am going to give it a try, but add a frozen package of spinach (squeezed dry) to give the burger more kick. Thanks!!

I was just thinking about this recipe this week and see it got bumped up. I like the idea of adding spinach but don't think my kids will fall for it! I'm going to be making these on the grill this week.

I make these almost every week. They are out of this world. They are so moist that mine fall apart on the grill so we have to do them on an indoor grill to keep them together. They are great for leftovers too. Definitely a staple in my house. I am on core so it totally fits in perfectly.

KansasLaura - that site has some wonderful recipes. I signed up for their newsletter.

 

Regarding adding spinach to the Perfect Turkey Burger, would I need to add an egg white or 2 so it would bind better?

This sounds like it would work GREAT on a Foreman Grill as well....
