Makes 4 servings
1 pound ground turkey
4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 teaspoons chopped shallot
1/3 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons parsley flakes
pinch cayenne pepper
*1 tablespoon bread crumbs
*4 100% whole wheat Buns
* Dijon Mustard
- In a large bowl combine ground turkey, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, shallot, sea salt, parsley flakes, and cayenne pepper. Add egg (if using one) and one teaspoon of black pepper; mix well. Add bread crumbs and mix. Take a third of mixture and roll it into a ball, then pat all mixture into patties.
- In a sauté pan heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add patties to pan. When one side is cooked halfway through, flip for the other side to cook.
- Open 4 whole wheat buns and spread a moderate layer of butter. In a sauté pan lay each bun face down to lightly brown. Repeat for each bun. Spread a small teaspoon of mayonnaise and small spoon of Dijon mustard on each bun. Sprinkle with a pinch of black pepper. Place a burger on each bun or add burger to a spinach salad or eat a skinny burger (without the bun).
