Use a meat thermometer as your indicator that burgers are cooked to a safe internal temperature. Source: Diabetic Living Magazine

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl combine egg white, onion, Parmesan cheese, the 1/4 cup oregano, the ketchup, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add beef and turkey; mix well. Shape meat mixture into eight 3/4-inch-thick patties.

  • 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 degrees Fahrenheit), (see Tip), turning once halfway through grilling time.

  • 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 degrees Fahrenheit 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.
