Avocado Topped Turkey Burger

Friday, March 01, 2013

From our skinny table to yours ...

Doesn't everyone just want a burger sometimes? Us included! But to skip the guilt, we swap out the calorie packed ground beef for 93% lean ground turkey! Now we know what you're thinking ... turkey burger = dry & unflavorful. Hold that thought and just wait until you try these!

This burger is packed with sautéed veggies which makes it so juicy & delicious. We start by cooking up garlic, onion and roasted red peppers. We mix in tons of fresh parsley, an egg white, a splash of skim milk and a touch of panko to hold our moist burger patties together. And no cheese or mayo needed here! We top these with a juicy thick tomato slick and creamy ripe avocado to finish.

We served these up with a side of homemade sweet potato fries for the perfect guilt free burger & fries combo. To make the fries just slice up a sweet potato into thin strips, toss with 1 tbsp of olive oil, salt and pepper and bake at 425 for about 30-40 minutes.

Hope you enjoy!
