Juicy Turkey Burgers

These burgers are so easy and, unlike plain grilled lean turkey, they are juicy and bursting with flavor. I used my small indoor electric grill since I don’t have a real one and they turned out FABULOUS! This is a perfect way to break up the monotony. 🙂 I came up with these on the fly and….yeah, my weekend is off to a great start!

1 pkg 99% lean ground turkey (1.25lb approx.)
1/2 red onion, chopped
4 baby bella mushrooms, chopped
1 roma tomato, chopped
1/4 cup fat-free Italian dressing

1. Mix all ingredients together until incorporated.
2. Divide into 5 (5oz) portions and form into patties.
3. Broil or grill until internal temperature reaches at least 170 degrees F.
4. Enjoy on sandwich thin or other whole grain roll.
