Quick, easy and healthy
“Protein Turkey Burger,” “Lettuce Turkey Burger,” there are a lot of names I can call this healthy and delicious burger. I was inspired to make this because this past week, I had a girls night out and two of my friends ordered a turkey burger. I’m thinking in my head, “I would never order that!” When my friend offered me a taste, I agreed (of course, I never decline to taste food). It was actually really flavorful. So today, I quickly made my own version with lettuce instead of bread. Summer is coming and I need to get in shape!
- 1 pound of ground turkey
- 2 tablespoons of seasoned breadcrumbs
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons of parsley, minced
- salt and pepper
- 1 teaspoon of cayenne
- 1 egg white
- iceberg lettuce
- cucumbers, sliced
- red onion, sliced
- red bell peppers
- crumbled feta cheese
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix with your hands. Form into patties.
Spray cooking spray on a heated a grill, grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Lightly season patties with salt and pepper and cook them 5 minutes on each side or until thoroughly cooked.
Assemble: (Use buns if desired) Spread hummus on lettuce, add feta cheese, cucumbers, red onion, red bell peppers and the turkey patty. Top with another piece of lettuce and serve.
