“Light Healthy Tasty Turkey Burgers on the Grill or Pan Fry”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you want this to be more tasty prepare ingredients the night before or the morning of -- then make patties when ready!
  2. Mix ground turkey, 1/2 cup salsa, shallots, cilantro, 3 tablespoons oil, hot sauce, cumin, salt, and pepper in large bowl. Shape turkey mixture into four 3 1/2- to 4-inch-diameter patties.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add burgers; cook until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low. Sauté until burgers are cooked through, about 4 minutes, turning occasionally.
  4. HINT: If you grill them make sure you use grilling non stick spray. heat on low. I think pan fry is recomended.
  5. I used green lettuce instead of buns.
  6. OPTIONAL: Arrange roll bottoms on 4 plates. Place lettuce, then burgers on roll bottoms. Top each burger with 2 tablespoons of remaining salsa, then roll tops.
