This is a MUST TRY recipe. I can’t say enough about how amazingly tasty this turkey burger is! Takes about 10 minutes to prep, 14 minutes to cook, and an incredibly fast rate to devour because it’s so delicious!
- 1 package of ground extra lean turkey breast
- 2 medium zucchini
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
*Served with lettuce & tomato on a 100% Whole Wheat Flax & Fiber Sandwich Thin.
Preheat your oven to Broil on High, and make sure to put your oven rack all the way to the top so that the turk burgs will cook about 2 inches from the heat. Next prep your baking sheet with foil and a non-stick spray. The turk burg mixture was very moist, so I suggest using a baking sheet that has a lip so that you don’t have any juice run off in your oven while cooking.
Grate the two zucchini and place them in a large bowl. Add all dry seasoning (dried basil, onion powder, oregano, garlic powder, salt & pepper) and then turkey. Mix well–I used my hands to mix, because the next thing you do is make your patties anyways. The recipe said it would yield four 4-5 oz portions, however I ended up with 5 patties. Place patties on your baking sheet, broil (on high) on the top rack for 7 minutes, then remove them from the oven and carefully flip each patty, cook for another 7 minutes on the other side.
Now it’s time to enjoy!! I dressed mine up with lettuce & tomato, and placed it on a lightly toasted 100 cal flax & fiber sandwich thin. It was delicious!
According to the recipe, if you were to yield four 5 oz burgers, they are 144 calories, 1g fat, 3.5g carbs, and 27.6 g protein. I didn’t weigh my patties, so my numbers may have been slightly off, but still low cal, high protein, and super tasty!
