  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • ⅔ cup chopped onion
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup snipped fresh oregano and/or basil or 2 teaspoons dried oregano and/or basil, crushed
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 pound uncooked ground turkey breast
  • 8 whole-wheat ciabatta rolls, split and toasted
  • 16 slices tomato
  • Fresh oregano and/or basil sprigs (optional)
  • Goat cheese (chevre), arugula and/or red onion slices (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large bowl combine egg white, onion, Parmesan cheese, the ¼ cup oregano, the ketchup, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add beef and turkey; mix well. Shape meat mixture into eight ¾-inch-thick patties.
  2. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill patties on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 14 to 18 minutes or until no longer pink (165°F), (see Tip), turning once halfway through grilling time.
  3. Serve burgers on rolls with tomato slices. If desired, top with fresh oregano and/or basil sprigs, dollops of goat cheese, arugula, and/or red onion slices.
  • Tip: The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey patty cooked to 165°F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
