Ingredients

  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese

  • 1 (7-ounce) bottle roasted red bell peppers, drained and cut into 1-inch strips

Directions

  • Place egg white in a large bowl; lightly beat with a whisk.
  • Add onion and next 6 ingredients (through turkey); stir well to combine.
  • Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Coat pan with cooking spray.
  • Add patties to pan; cook 8 minutes on each side or until done.
  • Place patties on bottom halves of hamburger buns.
  • Divide peppers evenly among burgers; cover with top halves of buns.

Notes

This recipe is from Cooking Light, and they are the best turkey burgers I have ever had! So flavorful and moist. I form the meat mixture into balls, then place on a nonstick pan coated with cooking spray and flatten with the back of a spatula. This is the best thing to do so they don't fall apart. Also, I cover them while cooking - this keeps the steam in so they stay really moist. We serve them on light whole wheat buns.
