Dietician's Tip: Substituting ground turkey breast for ground beef reduces the fat and calories in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1/4 cup dried plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 4 whole-grain buns
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 4 slices red onion
  • 2 bibb lettuce leaves, halved
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise

Directions

Combine the ground turkey breast, bread crumbs, chopped onion, parsley, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce in a large bowl. Mix well. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions and form into patties.

Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.

Grill burgers until browned on both sides and heated through, about 7 minutes a side. Serve each burger on a bun topped with 1 tomato slice, 1 onion slice, 1/2 lettuce leaf and a dollop of fat-free mayonnaise.
