Asian-Style Turkey BurgerThanksgiving is almost here.  You love turkey, but this year you want to keep it low key, so I have just the right recipe for you….ASIAN-STYLE TURKEY BURGERS!!!!

I am not very fond of turkey myself, but I do prepare a big Thanksgiving Feast for my family.

These Asian-Style Turkey Burgers are great, if you are opting out of cooking up a storm for Thanksgiving!  They are easy to prepare, moist and flavorful, and only about 280 calories per serving.   How can you beat that!  I serve then on a 100 calorie Multi-Grain Sandwich Thins, made by Arnold.  You can add some of your favorite trimmings, and celebrate Thanksgiving on a lite side.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup onions, chopped fine
  • 3 Tbs fresh Italian Parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbs Green Pepper, minced
  • 1 Tbs Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbs cold water
  • 2 tsp fresh Ginger, peeled and grated (or 1 tsp powdered)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbs oil for frying
  • 4 Multi-Grain Sandwich Thins, 100 calorie each

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix well the first 11 ingredients.
  2. Divide the turkey mixture to 4 equal portions, shaping each into a ¾ inch-thick patty.
  3. Coat a large skillet with oil, warm over medium high heat, until hot.
  4. Add patties, and cook for 8 minutes on each side, or until done.
  5. Serve on buns, with your favorite condiments and trimmings.

Tip:  Just for fun, I checked on the calories in some fast food chicken sandwiches, as I have not noticed turkey on their menu yet, and found out that these range from 360 – 660 calories per sandwich…ouch!

    That was so sweet of Meream to link to my potato peeling post. I actually clicked on it to see what other method someone else had, not knowing it was linked to my post. I was laughing so hard when I realized it was mine….
    I love regular rolls, since I LOVE all kind of breads, but due to only 100 calories in the Sandwich Thins, I switched to these babies now. They taste great as well.

    Meream, these are made by Arnold bread company (I just added a link, if you want to check it out), and our local grocery stores carry them. They taste wonderful, and only 100 calories each……you know every little bit helps.
