These burgers are full of flavor and low in fat. Just be sure to choose ground turkey breast instead of regular ground turkey, which may be a mixture of light and dark meat.
•1/2 cupfinely shredded carrot
•1/4 cupthinly sliced green onions
•2 tablespoonsfine dry bread crumbs
•2 tablespoonsfat-free milk
•1/4 teaspoondried Italian seasoning, crushed
•1/8 teaspoonground black pepper
•12 ouncesuncooked ground turkey breast or chicken breast
•1 cupmixed baby greens
•4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
•1/2 cupwhole cranberry sauce
In a medium bowl, stir together carrot, green onions, bread crumbs, milk, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add ground turkey; mix well. Shape the turkey mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.
Place patties on a greased grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until patties are done (165°F),* turning once halfway through grilling.
Arrange mixed greens on bottoms of buns. Top with grilled patties and cranberry sauce; replace top halves of buns.
Broiling Directions: Place patties on greased unheated broiler pan rack. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 11 to 13 minutes or until done (165°F),* turning once halfway through broiling
*Test Kitchen 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.
