INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces uncooked ground turkey breast or chicken breast
  • 1 cup mixed baby greens
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • 1/2 cup whole cranberry sauce

 

DIRECTIONS

In a medium bowl, stir together carrot, green onions, bread crumbs, milk, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add ground turkey; mix well. Shape the turkey mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.

Place patties on a greased grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until patties are done (165 degrees F),* turning once halfway through grilling.

Arrange mixed greens on bottoms of buns. Top with grilled patties and cranberry sauce; replace top halves of buns.

 

  • Tip: Broiling Directions:  Place patties on greased unheated broiler pan rack. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 11 to 13 minutes or until done (165 degrees F),* turning once halfway through broiling
  • Tip: *Test Kitchen Tip:  The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey or chicken patty cooked to 165 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
