Get out your grill for these easy grilled turkey burgers with fresh herbs.
Seattle’s overcast skies and cold weather don’t exactly put grilling foremost in my mind. Last night I thought I would pretend it was hot, sunny summer weather and grilled up a few turkey burgers just to make myself feel better. I think this lack of sun is giving me a vitamin D deficiency!
Ground turkey is a great choice to take advantage of the abundance of fresh herbs available this time of year. These burgers are seasoned with rosemary, chives, sage and parsley, then grilled to perfection.
Watch turkey burgers carefully as they can dry and out become tough as leather very quickly on the grill.
- 1 pound ground turkey
- ¼ cup chives, finely chopped
- ¼ cup parsley, minced
- 1 tablespoon sage, minced
- 1 tablespoon rosemary, minced
- 1 large tomato , sliced
- 2 cups leaf lettuce
- 4 ea Orowheat Sandwich Thins
- 1. Combine turkey, chives, parsley, sage and rosemary in a bowl. Shape into four patties.
- 2. Grill over medium heat for 4 - 5 minutes per side until turkey patties are no longer pink in the center. Do not over-cook or turkey will be dry and tough.
- 3. Place on a bun with tomatoes and lettuce.
What’s good for me in this dish?
Turkey tops the nutrition charts when it comes to tryptophan and protein. Even better, it contains half the saturated fat found in beef, making it a good source of protein. It also contains cancer-protecting selenium.
