You know my cousin Erica who has the sickest body EVER and who makes me so jealous that I want to give her100 paper cuts and then pour lemon juice all over her? What? You didn’t know I was crazy?
Well, anyway – she came over the other day to show me one of her favorite healthy meals – the turkey burger. But her version is SO FLAVORFUL! My goodness – I had three of them (which I think completely misses the point… but I’m a work in progress).
Here’s the recipe:
- 1/2 pepper diced – yellow if you have it
- 1/4 red onion diced
- 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes – diced
- 1/2 cup Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse
- 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey organic
- 1/4 feta
- 3 tablespoons of bacon bits
- 1 cup breadcrumbs (more if it’s too wet for you)
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Optional toppings: (and when I say optional I don’t mean it): roasted pepper hummus or guacamole
Step 1: Dice all veggies
Step 2: Place turkey in mixing bowl and add sauce and breadcrumbs.
Step 3: Saute tomatoes, peppers, onions and bacon bits in oil for a few minutes.
Step 4: Pour everything together and mix. (are you seeing how easy this is?)
Step 6: Cook through. Serve on 100 calorie bun and top with either roasted pepper hummus or guacamole. Or you can be like me and top with BOTH!
