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


  • 1 tablespoon fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon honey mustard
  • 3/4 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1/3 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

  • 2 (1-ounce) slices reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, halved
  • 4 English muffins, split and toasted
  • 4 large green leaf lettuce leaves


Combine mayonnaise and mustard in a small bowl.

Combine turkey, zucchini, cilantro, soy, and pepper. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/4-inch-thick patty.

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add patties; cook 4 minutes. Turn patties over; cook 3 minutes or until done. Top each patty with cheese; cover and cook 1 minute or until cheese melts.

Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise mixture over cut side of each of 4 muffin halves. Top halves with patties, lettuce leaves, and muffin tops.
