Whether you're dieting, counting carbs, eating more protein, or just looking for a quick and easy meal, try a turkey burger. Turkey burgers are a prefered option for almost any diet because they are low in fat and calories, high in protein, very easy to prepare, and they're quite delicious.
Things You'll Need
- Lean ground turkey meat
- Sliced pepperoncinis
- George Foreman grill
Remove the lean ground turkey meat from its packaging. With your hands, mold the turkey meat into 2.5 oz. patties.
Place a layer of sliced pepperoncinis on top of a 2.5 oz. patty. Then place a second patty on top, pinching the edges together, sealing the pepperoncinis inside. You now have a 5 oz. patty. Repeat with the remaining turkey patties.
Place the 5 oz. patties inside a pre-heated George Foreman grill. (Note: Don't forget to place the plastic tray underneath the George Foreman grill to catch the run off from the cooking turkey meat.)
Cook inside the George Foreman for about 3 minutes. Flip the burger and cook for another 3 minutes.
Remove from the George Foreman and serve. Recommended albeit optional accouterments include: muenster cheese; stone ground mustard; ketchup; whole wheat hamburger bun; lettuce; cucumber slices; kosher dill pickels.
Tips & Warnings
- To freeze, wrap a prepared but still uncooked turkey burger in wax paper and place inside a zip-lock freezer bag.
- Always defrost frozen turkey burgers before placing them in the George Foreman grill. To defrost a 5 oz. turkey burger, place in the microwave for 3 minutes on low power.
- Using extra lean turkey meat makes for very dry burgers. And since the extra lean is only a smidge lower in fat and calories, it's just not worth the loss of flavor.
