After a few months of dieting, dinner gets to be same ‘ol. There are some great lo cal recipes out there while lately I have begun to take recipes and modify them to be lo cal to add some variety…
So this one is a modified turkey burger, took something kind of ho-hum and we ended up loving it!! The burger is incredibly moist.
This makes 12 good size turkey burgers, which I froze in packages of 3.
3 pounds of lean ground turkey
3 stalks celery
½ cup Special K cereal, ground up fine in food processor or blender
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons of poultry seasoning
1/3 cup lo fat feta cheese, crumbled.
Lo calorie Mayo
100 calorie Rye Sandwich rounds
Chop the peeled apples and celery fine and sauté in 1 tablespoon extra version olive oil until tender.
Combine the sauté above, the feta cheese, and into the ground turkey.
Add the blended Special K
Lay wax paper on the counter and shape into burgers. Lay another sheet of wax paper on top and cut into squares. I put mine into baggies to freeze.
Use only a half teaspoon of Olive Oil and fry the burgers on medium low heat, mine took about 10 minutes.
Combine one tablespoon of lo cal mayo with one teaspoon of cranberry. Whip until blended.
Place the burger on the sandwich round, top with the mayo spread.
On the high side I estimate this burger dish to be around 400 calories including the sandwich rounds.
I served them with garden fresh sliced tomatoes, drizzled with lo-cal dressing
I'm going to try this but I don't ever buy sour cream anymore, I use plain non-fat greek style yogurt. It has worked in every recipe that I would use sour cream in. How many oz are the cutlets usually, are they called cutlets when I look for them? I don't cook with turkey much unless it's the whole bird or leftovers from the bird.
Good idea Kelly on using greek yoguart.... My hubbie has one everyday for lunch so we always have them around.
Yes, they are called cutlets and already sliced pretty thin. I already threw my package out but there was about 10 thinly sliced ones in the package. I used half and the other half I am using tonight for a stir fry!
