|Southwest Turkey Burger|
This was very simple to make and very tasty! We used Rachael Ray's recipe and made some changes so the meal would fit both Dukan and Paleo. We did use bacon which we wouldn't use in Cruise (too much fat). We used lettuce in place of a bun.
Not sure if it's just my imagination, but the leftovers tasted even better.
Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Cook Time: approx 15-16 minutes, we cooked our burgers in two batches
1 1/4 lb. ground turkey
2 slices bacon, chopped finely
2 cloves garlic, minced finely
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1 t. dried thyme leaves
2 T. freeze dried or fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 small bell pepper, seeded and chopped finely (any color)
2 small serrano peppers, seeded and chopped finely
2 t. ground cumin
2 t. adobo seasoning (Paleo folks, making your own is best)
4 pieces of romaine lettuce to fit burgers like buns
Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Mix all ingredients except lettuce together. Form 4 large patties and
grill. For the Dukan folks, spray your pan lightly with non-stick spray and for the Paleo folks, extra virgin olive oil or your choice of fat.
Grill patties approx 4 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. It'll depend on how thick you make your patties.
Serve with lettuce pieces.
Enjoy...we sure did!
