Dietitian’s tip: Substituting ground turkey chest for ground beef reduces the fat and calories in this recipe.
1 pound ground turkey chest
1/4 cup dried bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon Tabasco (hot) sauce
4 whole-grain buns
4 slices tomato
4 slices red onion
2 bibb lettuce leaves, halved
4 tablespoons ketchup
Combine the ground turkey chest, bread crumbs, chopped onion, parsley and hot sauce in a large bowl. Mix well. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions and form into patties.
Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.
Grill burgers until nicely browned on both sides and heated through, about 7 minutes a side. Serve each burger on a bun topped with 1 tomato slice, 1 onion slice, 1/2 lettuce leaf and a dollop of ketchup.
