I miss summer. Up here in New England we have no snow. I'm not complaining because I would prefer to not drive in the snow, but I would rather there be snow on the ground than have everything be brown and sad looking. Some days it is actually kind of warm (and by warm I mean about 50 degrees) so it does make me miss summer time. Also, my neighbors were grilling the other day so that really made me want this meal.
Ever since I can remember, my parents have made hamburgers with salsa, so I did too. It makes the burger very moist and adds a little kick of flavor and spice. I also added some fresh herbs and served these on reduced calorie, whole wheat buns.
I didn't account for my toppings in the points because everyone puts something different on their burgers. I put BBQ sauce, sauteed onions, lettuce, tomato, and fat free cheese on mine and it came out to about 8 points (1 Point+ for the cheese and 1 point+ for the BBQ sauce).
The day that I made these Super Juicy Turkey Burgers, it was freezing out. I would have felt bad making my boyfriend stand outside to grill (I certainly wasn't going to do it) so, we made these burgers in a very hot pan and they came out delicious. You can always cook these on the grill as well, just spray a little cooking spray so they don't stick, and the cooking time remains the same.
We loved these burgers. We had them with a veggie loaded pasta salad (recipe coming soon!) and they were really filling. The whole meal made me think of summer time and barbecues. The warm weather can't come soon enough!
- 1.3 pounds 93% lean Ground Turkey
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp Salsa (I used Newman's Own Tequila Lime)
- 1/4 cup Fresh Parsley, chopped
- Salt and Black Pepper
- 6 Reduced Calorie Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns (2 Points+ each)
- Your choice of toppings for extra points
- Cooking Spray
Lightly spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat.
Add ground turkey, salsa, parsley, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl. Combine so all of the herbs and salsa is mixed throughout the ground turkey. Form into 6 patties. Matt helped with this part so I could take pictures :)
Once the pan is hot, add the turkey burgers. Cook about 5 minutes per side, until the burger is cooked through and slightly charred.
Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
