The average restaurant burger contains nearly 1,000 calories, with half of those calories coming from fat. Thats most people’s DAILY recommended intake of fat. Check out this quick and easy homemade turkey burger recipe that contains less than 10g of fat. That lets you keep the bun!
What you will need:
- 1 package extra lean ground turkey
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
- 60g (1/4 cup) egg whites
- Italian seasoning (optional)
- PAM cooking spray
- Burger toppings and bun
What to do:
In a large bowl, mix together 1 package of extra lean ground turkey, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, 60g egg whites and Italian seasoning. Mix together well, using your hands works best. Divide into 4-6 separate patties (depending how big you want them to be, warning - they will expand when they are cooked). Heat a frying pan on medium heat and spray the pan with PAM cooking spray. Add the burgers, and once they are browned flip them over, reduce the heat to low, and cover for 10 minutes. Serve on a bun with your favourite toppings - ours are goats cheese and veggies.
