Grilled Turkey Burgers
Deliciously healthy burger. Add some light mayo, tomato and lettuce. Sooo good!
- 1 1/4 lbs. 93% lean ground turkey
- 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
- 4 whole-wheat deli flats or hamburger buns
Break the ground turkey into small pieces in a bowl and add the ricotta, Worcestershire, mustard, salt, and pepper. Using your hands, mix until combined.
Divide the meat into 4 equal portions, then form each into a loose ball and gently flatten into a 1-inch-thick patty.
Heat oil in a large heavy skillet (preferably cast iron or stainless steel with an aluminum core) (I used a large grill pan) over medium heat. Grill the burgers for 7 to 9 minutes on each side. Insert instant-read thermometer into the side of the burger until it registers 160 degrees. (Mine took exactly 7 minutes on each side.)
Remove from grill and serve immediately.
Makes 4 large burgers.
