Reader's Recipe: Turkey Burgers

This week's Reader's Recipe comes from Sarah Tarantino. Can't wait to try these! Enjoy :)

This recipe is actually from The Abs Diet cookbook. We bought the book a few years ago, and I actually still use a lot of the recipes as staples, because I know they are healthy and easy.

So here goes:


1 egg
1 lb. ground turkey breast
2 crushed cloves garlic
1/3 cup drained canned diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, whisk egg. Add everything else, mixing it with your hands until well blended. Form into four patties. Place in a grill pan or nonstick skillet that's heated over medium-high. Cook 6 minutes per side or to desired level of doneness.

We like to put the burgers on toasted sourdough wheat bread and top with a little dijon mustard.

A good side that we sometimes eat with this are sweet potato fries. Toss some field greens with oil and vinegar for a simple salad, and you have a tasty little meal that is so easy to make!

**The only thing about this recipe is that sometimes when you are mixing it, it can get a little eggy, which makes it difficult to form the patties. So, adding a little more ground turkey can help that.

Hope you like it!
