No need to add a lot of fat to your turkey burgers to keep them moist! I have found the perfect way to not only make them fast and easy, but these are also healthy and delicious! Easy enough for a weeknight meal, and a perfect reason to skip the drive thru and eat at home!
AIMEE'S EASY MOUTH-WATERING MOIST TURKEY BURGERS
The secret to these burgers not drying out? The Greek yogurt.
- 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup Cabot lowfat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 Tablespoon worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
- 1 shallot, finely diced
- hot habanero, jalapeño cheddar or pepper jack cheese, sliced (use your favorite kind of cheese!)
- hamburger buns
- sliced tomato
- baby spinach
- cooking spray
Heat a skillet medium-high to high heat. Mix ground turkey, Greek yogurt, worcestershire sauce, cayenne and shallot together. Form your burgers into 4 larger sized burgers, or about 8 small burgers; then spray skillet with cooking spray (or use 1 Tablespoon olive oil). Add burgers to pan and cook for about 5 minutes, then flip burgers. Cook for another 4 minutes, then add cheese slices to the top of burger. Add a lid to the pan and allow the cheese to melt; about 1 minute. Spread Greek yogurt on buns, add baby spinach, sliced avocado and tomato, burger and enjoy!
