Grilled Turkey Bacon Blue Hot Sauce Burger Recipe

When your trying to cut the fat it's difficult to get the flavor that will still satisfy that meat craving when substituting turkey. I finally made a turkey burger I was proud to post and would make again! This one is bursting with flavor and I would certainly make this again. The calories and fat are half of what you would have with a regular beef burger, what a bonus lower in Cholesterol!
Did it taste better than beef? I will leave that up to you to decide but really a great alternative during that diet time for a healthier way of eating.

 
 
1 pound ground turkey
3 tablespoons hot sauce
3 tablespoons light blue cheese dressing ( yogurt blue cheese dressing or fat free works great too)
1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used Italian flavored with grating cheese in it)
salt, pepper and cayenne to taste
2 tablespoons kitchen bouquet sauce (brown seasoning sauce found in the marinade sections in your supermarkets)
2 tablespoons real bacon bits
 Optional: add 1/4 cup chopped peppers, onions or fresh mushrooms
 
Mix everything together in a bowl. Shape into thick patties and grill until both sides are nicely browned with grill marks around 10 minutes on high each side. Makes 3 good size burgers.
 
Serve on a salad or in a hamburger roll. Top with more blue cheese light dressing and bacon bits if you like.
