Last night I made some pretty darn good grilled turkey burger lettuce wraps to eat while watching Dancing With The Stars! I’ve meant to make these for weeks now, and I’ve had the ground turkey in the freezer just waiting for me to cook it up. This meal was quick and straightforward; it only took about 45 minutes to prepare and cook it all. Once Dancing With The Stars comes on, I’m hooked to the television; I love Monday nights! My favorite dance couple is still in the game, Riker & Allison!
Burger Ingredients: *1 lb ground turkey, * one large egg, *1 tablespoon olive oil, *1/2 small onion, diced, *1/4 teaspoon black pepper, *1/4 teaspoon sea salt, *1 teaspoon garlic powder, *1 tablespoon of low sodium soy sauce, *1/2 teaspoon onion powder.
Sweet Potato Fries: *1 large Sweet Potato sliced, * sea salt *olive oil for frying.
Extras *lettuce *tomato *avocado
Heat your grill on high, or you can bake these on 350.
Time to get your hands dirty! Throw meat, spices, sauce, and the egg into a mixing bowl and mix with your hands.
Form six big juicy patties! & throw them on the grill.
I cooked them on the tin foil until they were half cooked and then removed the foil and cooked them directly on the grill.
The sweet potato fries were fried in olive oil for twenty minutes and then shoved in the oven for 25 minutes on 425. Make sure you continue to flip!
I felt great after eating dinner like this. It was healthy, full of protein, fiber, and healthy carbs! The turkey burgers turned out great; they weren’t dry like most ground turkey burgers, and they had tons of flavor!
