Do you want to know what I am doing right now? ...Eating lunch! I literally just snapped a picture of my lunch and now I am posting the recipe while I eat. Don't you wish you could enjoy this lunch too?! Ahhh the benefits of being able to work from home! Verdict on this recipe: I will definitely be making this again. I think it would be a nice change to our normal summertime barbecues at the lake! Have a fabulous weekend!!
Buffalo Turkey Burgers
Yield: 6 servings
1.2 lbs. Lean Ground Turkey
1/2 White Onion, finely chopped
1/3 C. Bread Crumbs
Salt and Pepper (to your liking)
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/3 C. Buffalo Sauce or Hot Sauce
6 Slices of Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese
6 Hamburger Buns (go to your favorite bakery!)
Lettuce (for serving)
Celery Sticks (for serving)
In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, chopped onion, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Once it has been incorporated, form it into 6 equally-sized patties. In a large skillet (or two), heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the turkey burger patties to the skillet. Cook on each side for at least 7 minutes (depending on the thickness of your burger). Once the burgers are done, toss them in a bowl of buffalo sauce. Set the burgers on a baking sheet lined with foil, place a piece of mozzarella cheese on top and put them in the oven to broil for 2 mintues. At this time, you may wish to toast the hamburger buns in the oven. I find that some people do NOT like their buns toasted! :) When you are ready to serve, place a small piece of lettuce on each bun, top it off with the burger and voila! Serve with celery sticks, blue cheese dressing, and baked sweet potato fries.
