Grilled Turkey Burgers
Diabetic Living Magazine
“The carrots and green onions add moisture to the lean ground turkey, making these grilled burgers extra juicy and delicious.”
½ cup finely shredded carrot
¼ cup thinly sliced green onions
2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons fat-free milk
¼ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
¼ teaspoon garlic salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
12 ounces uncooked ground turkey or chicken breast
¼ cup Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon curry powder
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
Lettuce leaves (optional)
Sliced tomato (optional)
1In a medium bowl stir together carrot, green onions, bread crumbs, milk, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper. Add ground turkey; mix well. Form the turkey mixture into four ½-inch-thick patties.
2Place patties on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 11 to 13 minutes or until patties are done (165°F), (see Tip), turning once halfway through grilling time. To broil, place patties on the unheated greased rack of a foil-lined broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 11 to 13 minutes turning once halfway through broiling time.
3Meanwhile, while burgers are cooking, in a small bowl stir together mustard and curry powder. Spread buns with mustard mixture. Top with burgers and, if desired, lettuce and tomato.
Tip: The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey or chicken 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.
