Summer Supper

July 15, 2010

I’ve been trying to cook a little healthier lately, so I thought I’d try turkey burgers.  I found this amazing recipe {from Emeril, of course} and have already made them twice this week.  The ingredients that are mixed in with the meat make it so flavorful — you really don’t miss the beef.  I served with coleslaw, tater tots and corn on the cob with cilantro butter…a perfect summer supper!

Ingredients

1 pound ground turkey

1/2 minced red onion

1/4 cup minced green onion, (about 1 scallion)

1 poblano peppers, diced

1 egg white

1 tablespoons Emeril’s Southwestern Essence

½  teaspoon ground cumin

½  tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Whole wheat burger buns

Slices of your favorite cheese

Lettuce leaves

Sliced tomato

½ sliced red onion

1 avocado, thinly sliced

Chipotle mayo (I open a can of chipotles and dribble about a teaspoon into a half cup of light mayo)

 Directions

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

 In a large bowl, combine ground turkey with minced red onion, green onion, peppers, egg white, Essence, cumin and Worcestershire sauce. Divide the turkey into patties – 6 to 8, depending on how big you like them.

 Place the burgers on the grill and cook until turkey is done, about 3 minutes per side.

 Serve the burgers with cheese on the buns with lettuce, tomato, sliced red onions and avocado, garnished with chipotle mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup to your liking.
