Asian–Style Turkey Burgers – Recipe

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 them 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.
