So in honor of my favorite burgers here's my own version of the American classic!
Grilled Turkey Burgers w/healthy onion rings!
1 pound of 93% fat Turkey Meat
2 Tablespoons of Dijon Mustard
2 Tablespoons of canola oil
2 Tablespoons of Part Skim Ricotta Cheese
Salt & Pepper, Paprika, Garlic & Onion Powder
Red Pepper Flakes
Mix all ingredients together with your hands and refrigerate.
Should make about 4 good size patties.
Grill at medium to high heat in a heavy cast iron pan. I prefer Lodge. Make sure to only flip once.
Top w/ any of your favorite cheese, sauteed onions & banana peppers and serve on a toasted english muffin.
Healthy Style Onion Rings
1 large white onion sliced into rings
Tablespoon of olive oil
salt & pepper (pinch of cayenne if you like it spicy)
Mix together with your hands and spread out on a baking pan.
Preheat oven to 400F degrees and bake for 40-45 minutes or until onions are crispy. Turn onions once during cooking process to avoid sticking to pan.
Serve all together and enjoy!
Sauteed Brussel Sprouts (Optional)
1 package of Brussel Sprouts washed and halved
1 shallot rough chop
Salt & Pepper
Saute all ingredients in a pan until brussel sprouts are slightly tender
finish off with a teaspoon of lemon zest and mix.
