    Italian Turkey Burgers

    POINTS® Value: 5
    Preparation Time:
    20 min
    Cooking Time:
    10 min
    Level of Difficulty:

    The addition of fennel seeds makes these burgers reminiscent of Italian sausage. Top them with fresh basil and tomato for a wonderful summer main course.


    1 spray(s) cooking spray

    1 pound(s) lean ground turkey

    1/3 cup(s) onion(s), chopped

    2 tsp minced garlic

    2 tsp fennel seed

    1/2 tsp table salt

    1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground

    4 spray(s) olive oil cooking spray

    2 small tomato(es), ripe, yellow and/or red, thinly sliced

    1 cup(s) basil, fresh, leaves, torn or thinly shredded

    4 item(s) reduced-calorie hamburger roll(s)

    · Coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray; preheat to medium-high.
    · In a large mixing bowl, combine turkey, onion, garlic, fennel seed, salt and pepper; form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Coat burgers and inside of rolls with cooking spray.
    · Grill burgers for 5 minutes; flip burgers and add rolls to grill. Grill open-face rolls until lightly charred, about 1 to 2 minutes; remove to serving plates. Grill burgers until cooked through, about 5 minutes more.
    · To serve, top grilled rolls with burgers and tomato slices; garnish with basil. Yields 1 burger per serving.

    · For an extra hit of flavor, rub the bread with a cut garlic clove as it comes off the grill.

    Try these burgers with arugula leaves instead of the basil.
