|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.
