I found this recipe in a Weight Watchers cookbook. I think it is a perfect weeknight meal as it is simple to prepare and tastes delicious.
- 3⁄4 lb ground turkey
- 2 scallions or 2 green onions, chopped
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄3 cup monterey jack cheese
- Combine the 1st six ingredients in a bowl. Blend in the cheese.
- Form into 4 patties.
- Spray a frying pan with cooking spray.
- Cook patties until done.
- Serve on hamburger buns with lettuce and tomatoes.
Fantastic! I very rarely review recipes (in fact, this might be my first), but I have to give this recipe huge credit for having a high reality:expectation ratio. I honestly wasn't expecting much from a turkey burger, despite the raving reviews, so I had pretty low expectations going into this. I was expecting a pretty bland burger that dried out easily on the grill. To my surprise, these ended up being very flavorful and about the most moist burgers I've had in a long time. The turkey I ended up with was likely a blend of dark and white meat, so pure ground breast may be more dry. For comparison, I usually use 85/15 beef, mixed with 1 egg/pound, and seasoned appropriately. That said, I made these very close to the recipe, except that I substituted crushed Club crackers in place of the cheese (on the recommendation of another person that felt the cheese made them too soft for grilling); the substitution worked out great, but these would have been even better with the cheese included. I also grilled them over low / medium-low heat for about 10-12 min, flipping at the half way mark. For the record, they held up as well as beef. Where the turkey was cheaper, maybe a tad more healthy, and just as juicy as 85/15 beef, I may be doing these going forward in place of beef burgers. That's says a lot, coming from a red meat fan who doesn't usually care for poultry!
Excellent! I tried in a pinch because I was lacking an ingredient for my usual Turkey burger recipe. I looked all through my other cookbooks and other internet recipes and finally settled on this! Will definitely do again. Easy also.
These were amazingly good. Even my suspicious husband thought they were delish. I used a whole 20.8 package of turkey breast, added 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the mixture and sprayed the patties with olive oil spray in addition to spraying the pan. Other than that, I followed the recipe. I should have started them on medium-low as they started to burn a little bit. They taste just as satisfying as a real burger. When I find ground turkey breast on sale, I am going to make up a bunch of these and freeze them. Thanks so much for sharing a really good recipe.
