Last night I actually cooked dinner which is a rarity because a) I never have time and b) I live by myself. But, I had a friend over so I made turkey burgers with roasted sweet potato pieces. Yum!
The turkey burger recipe is so delicious (and easy) I just had to share!
Teriyaki Turkey Burgers
1 pound ground turkey (I can rarely find 1 pound so this time it was 1.19lbs)
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
dash of garlic powder
In a small bowl mix together the honey, soy sauce and garlic powder.
In a seperate bowl mix together the celery and the turkey.
Spoon 3 tablespoons of the soy/honey mixture in to the turkey. (reserving the rest to brush over the burgers as they cook, ideally on the grill) Mix together.
Make patties and cook. I used my Foreman grill as it's winter and cold and I don't have a BBQ. I have also baked them but be careful as it's easy to overcook turkey and it gets dry fast. When using my Foreman grill I don't brush them with the soy/honey mix because most of it runs off and makes a mess and smokes. This time I served the extra as a dipping sauce.
The whole batch has about 1196 calories. I made 7 burger so that came out to about 170 calories/burger. Not too shabby!
