Turkey Burger Recipe

Turkey Meat is an excellent source of energy and is low in fat making it more suitable for burgers than ground beef. This meal is sure to make an extra punch of energy into your day.

Ingredients for Two

2 Turkey Burger Patties
Lettuce (your choice, Romain works best)
1 Tomato
Barbecue Sauce
2 Whole Wheat Buns
2 Slices of Soy Cheese (I use pepper jack for the burgers, but American and Cheddar works fine as well)
Seasoning (use your favorite burger seasoning)

To start, if the patties are frozen, defrost them using the defrosting cycle on the microwave for about 5 minutes. Running them under hot water for a few minutes has pretty much the same effect. Heat your pan up, and make sure you spray with Pam, so the burgers won't stick (No, don't use butter. It may taste better, but Pam is not as full of calories and fat)

After the pan has heated up, place both turkey burgers on and sprinkle with seasoning (Not too much, too much sodium isn't good for you.) When the turkey burger patties are done cooking they'll be a nice brown color and brown all of the way through, make sure there is no pink left.

Cooking the burgers will take awhile, so now is the perfect time to turn your attention to the tomato and lettuce. Slice the tomato until you have enough for your burger and wash and cut the lettuce.

Warm up the buns. I find it best to toast them slightly in the toaster oven. Add a little bit of the barbecue sauce to your buns and you're nearly done.

Now the turkey burgers are probably done. Before you remove them from the heat, put the soy cheese on top of them and allow the cheese to melt slightly. Then remove the burgers and add to the buns. Place the tomatoes and lettuce on top of the pattie, cover with the top bun, serve and enjoy!
