Dukan Buffalo Parmesan Turkey Burgers

We both liked these, but we weren't falling ourselves over them.  They were definitely juicier without the oat bran but we didn't use enough hot sauce.  If you don't like spicy, this is fine the way it is, if you like spicy food, definitely add more hot sauce.

These were our spicy miso turkey burgers, but the
buffalo ones looked the same.
Decided to throw this together...weren't sure how it would turn out.  Several months ago we saw a food show on the Travel Channel and the "original" buffalo wings restaurant in Buffalo, New York was featured.  Being lovers of buffalo wings, we just had to try it.  We really enjoyed it but since starting Dukan, all that butter is off limits and now that's we've gotten used to eating low fat, not sure we really would enjoy butter in that amount.

So, we found ourselves with a bottle of Frank's hot sauce, the one used in most copy cat Anchor Bar Buffalo Wing recipes.  Sounded like a great opportunity to try a buffalo turkey burger!  We found a 'Buffalo Burger' recipe on the internet and tweaked it a bit.

Serves 3-4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10-20 minutes (depending on how large your pan is, ours is small)

1 lb. ground turkey, lean
2 T. Frank's original hot sauce
1 t. dried minced onions
1/2 t. kosher salt
1/8 t. pepper
1/4 c. parmesan cheese, grated (from the can)
1/2 c. egg whites

Mix all ingredients together and form 8 patties.  Pan fry with a little bit of olive oil spray until juices run clear.
