Recipe: Low Fat Burger with Show Stopper Topper
Low Fat Burger with Show Stopper Topper
1/2 pound extra lean ground beef
1/2 pound lean ground turkey (skinless)
2 tablespoons minced onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 egg white
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon lite Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon each chili powder and celery seeds
1/4 teaspoon each ground cumin, salt, and black pepper
4 hamburger rolls
Combine all burger ingredients (beef through black pepper) in a large bowl. Mix well (using your hands works best). Divide into 4 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 1/2 inch thick patty. Separate patties using wax paper. This also makes it easier to transfer them to the grill.
Prepare grill. Cook burgers 4-5 minutes on each side, or until desired doneness is reached. Baste with your favorite barbeque sauce.
Serve on hamburger rolls with your favorite toppings. Makes 4 servings.
