Basil Turkey Burgers


For those not concerned about fat intake, I add cheese. This gets thumbs up from the teenagers and boyfriend who hate anything low-fat.

  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • ½ onion, finely chopped

  • ½ cup egg substitute

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil

  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish

  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split

  • 4 leaves lettuce leaves

  • 4 slices tomato


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  2. Mix ground turkey, onion, egg substitute, basil, horseradish, soy sauce, pepper, and garlic in a large mixing bowl; form into 4 patties.

  3. Cook the turkey burgers on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Serve on buns with lettuce and tomato.
