Barbecue Turkey Burgers

Burgers don't have to be made from beef to be delicious and satisfying. These turkey burgers are ultra-moist and tasty, making them a great alternative to traditional high-fat beef patties.

Cooking Light MARCH 2001

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 burger)

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 large leaf lettuce leaves
  • 4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
  • 4 (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns

Preparation

Combine the onion, 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce, breadcrumbs, and the next 5 ingredients (breadcrumbs through turkey) in a medium bowl. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1 1/2 inch-thick patty.

Heat a grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Place patties in pan; cook 7 minutes on each side or until done.

Place 1 lettuce leaf, 1 tomato slice, and 1 patty on the bottom half of each bun. Spread each patty with 1 1/2 teaspoons barbecue sauce. Cover with top halves of buns.
