Carolina BBQ Burgers

July 31, 2011

I stumbled upon this recipe while flipping through my cooking magazines and found this one in WeightWatchers Mag.  I lowered the points {from 9/per burger to 7/per burger} by using ground turkey instead of ground beef and made five patties, instead of four.  The end result was a {healthy} juicy burger that I served with Homemade Sweet Potato Fries.

  • 3 TBS Ketchup
  • 1 TBS Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 TBS Mustard
  • 1 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ¾ TSP Worcestershire Sauce
  • ⅓ TSP Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 LB Ground Turkey
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 5 Whole Wheat Thin Buns
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Lettuce Leaves, torn
  • Tomato slices

Preheat grill to medium-hig heat. For sauce, mix ketchup through cajun seasoning. Season ground turkey with salt and pepper and form into patties. Place patties on heated grill. Brush the tops generously with BBQ sauce. Flip burgers after about 4 minutes and brush burgers with remaining sauce. Meanwhile, slice red onion, brush with olive oil and toss on grill. Once burgers are done (after about another 4 min.) place on buns and top with grilled onions, lettuce and tomato.
