Tasty Turkey Burgers

There’s nothing better than a big, juicy hamburger or cheeseburger, but ground beef is notorious for its dubious ingredients and its high fat content. Ground turkey is less fatty than all but the leanest cuts of ground beef. Shop around for ground turkey breast, as breast meat is much leaner than dark meat. These turkey burgers taste great, and you can even double the recipe and freeze raw patties for later cookouts. Add a whole wheat bun and some veggies, and you’re good to go!

What You Need

3 lbs. ground turkey breast

¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs

¼ cup finely diced onion

¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

2 egg whites

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp salt, or to taste

¼ tsp pepper, or to taste
