Andrea Cooley April 9, 2010Friday recipe: Italian turkey burgers It’s officially grilling season in our house. My husband jokes that he could eat grilled hamburgers or hot dogs every day and sometimes I don’t think he’s kidding. But we’re both trying to eat healthier, so I cook with turkey instead of hamburger whenever possible. These turkey burgers from Weight Watchers look delicious!Limiting red meat is one way to eat healthier, but I also know buns pack on calories. Do you have a favorite reduced-calorie bun?Italian Turkey Burgers 1 spray(s) cooking spray 1 pound lean ground turkey 1/3 cup onions, chopped 2 tsp minced garlic 2 tsp fennel seed 1/2 tsp table salt 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground 4 sprays olive oil cooking spray 2 small tomatoes, ripe, yellow and/or red, thinly sliced 1 cup basil, fresh, leaves, torn or thinly shredded 4 reduced-calorie hamburger rollsDirectionsCoat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray; preheat to medium-high.In a large mixing bowl, combine turkey, onion, garlic, fennel seed, salt and pepper; form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Coat burgers and inside of rolls with cooking spray.Grill burgers for 5 minutes; flip burgers and add rolls to grill. Grill open-face rolls until lightly charred, about 1 to 2 minutes; remove to serving plates. Grill burgers until cooked through, about 5 minutes more.To serve, top grilled rolls with tomato slices and burgers; garnish with basil. 17 responses to “Friday recipe: Italian turkey burgers” Oh Great!
