NEW RECIPE: Cheddar Veggie Turkey Burgers

There's nothing like Spring and Summer to make delicious burgers...and there's nothing worse than a big fatty burger to weigh you down or possibly even worse--a flavorless patty that tastes like nothing! I was so busy yesterday (today is just as bad). But I decided I wanted to make turkey burgers because I had bought ground turkey to make another recipe and realized I didn't have all the ingredients. With no time to go to the store, I decided to rifle through my cabinets and use up what I had and OH MY GOODNESS these turned out AMAZING!


Cheddar Veggie Turkey Burgers


Number of Servings: 6
Cheddar Veggie Turkey Burger and some Alexia sweet potato puffs. YUM!

    1/4 Cup Minced Onion

    6 Light White Buns (included in calorie count!!!!!)

The Verdict:
 
These are super moist, delicious, FILLING turkey burgers. You don't need to add any ketchup or anything because they are just so flavorful and delicious. The cheese inside makes these super gooey and delicious too. No need to smother with cheese! And if you want to add shredded lettuce, just add 2 calories for 1/4 cup! I served these with Alexia Sweet Potato Puffs and this was an amazing dinner. You will love these!!! Give them a try!
