Turkey burgers are a great low-fat grilling alternative to high-fat burgers, especially if you look for the leanest possible ground turkey. This sounds like a tasty recipe for adding flavor, a honey-mustard grilled turkey burgers from EatingWell.com.
The details, along with my notes on how to further cut salt, fat and sugar:
- ¼ cup coarse-grained mustard
- 2 tablespoons honey (try using less to cut the sugar, experiment with how much is enough to give flavor but also less sugar.)
- 1 pound ground turkey breast (buy the leanest ground Turkey you can find.)
- ¼ teaspoon salt (leave this out)
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 4 whole-wheat hamburger rolls, split and toasted ( check salt content on the buns you buy, not all whole-wheat buns are the same when it comes to salt. This is likely where a lot of the per-serving salt is hiding.)
- Lettuce, tomato slices and red onion slices, for garnish
