Italian Turkey Burgers


In honor of National Burger Month AND Memorial Day this weekend, I wanted to share my delicious (and healthly) twist on a turkey burger!  My Italian Turkey Burgers!

Served on a whole grain bun or on a bed of rice or noodles, these burgers will definitely be a hit.

Makes 4 servings

·      1 lb. lean ground turkey
·      2 tablespoons grated onion
·      1 teaspoon dried oregano
·      ½ teaspoon dried basil
·      ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

·      1 8-ounce can salt-free (or regular) tomato sauce
·      1 4-ounce can mushroom pieces, drained
·      ¼ teaspoon each dried oregano and basil
·      teaspoon garlic powder

In a large bowl, combine turkey with remaining burger ingredients. Mix well. Shape into 4 patties.
Spray a large nonstick griddle or skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium heat.

Place burgers on griddle. Cook until burgers are done and nicely browned on both sides. Turn burners several times while cooking.

While burgers are cooking combine sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat until hot and bubbly. Keep warm over low heat until burgers are ready.

Divide sauce evenly and spoon over burgers when serving.
