Tummy Tueasday : Mini Turkey Burgers



So the Super Bowl is right around the corner... It's one of those American 'holidays' that can really pack on the pounds if you don't watch yourself! Mindless eating in front of the T.V. is basically accepted behavior for this event... and there is always tons of temptation! I urge you all to eat something with protein if you are headed out to a party... and if you are hosting, try this great recipe for Mini Turkey Burgers from MyRecipes.com ... each mini burger has less than 200 calories!

Ingredients

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey breast
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
Cooking spray
1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons minced sweet gherkin pickle (about 2 small)
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 (1-ounce) dinner rolls
6 curly leaf lettuce leaves, torn in half

Preparation

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add cheese, stirring with a fork just until combined. Divide turkey mixture into 12 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/4-inch-thick patty.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 4 patties; cook 2 minutes. Carefully turn patties over; cook 2 minutes or until done. Place patties on a large baking sheet in a single layer. Repeat procedure with remaining patties. Cool patties to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap; freeze until firm. Place in a single layer in zip-top plastic bags; freeze up to 3 months.

Thaw patties overnight in refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 400ยบ.

Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Place patties on baking sheet in a single layer; cover with foil. Bake 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Keep warm.

Combine mayonnaise, pickle, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Cut rolls in half horizontally. Spread about 1 teaspoon mayonnaise mixture on bottom half of each roll; top each with 1 turkey patty and 1 piece lettuce. Cover with tops of rolls. Serve immediately.

ENJOY!!! and watchout this weekend!

  1. Great recipe. When hosting a party, try putting healthy food out for your guests to eat. Someone on the news yesterday said it didn't matter what you ate, it was a party. It does matter.
