My house smelled so good while I was making these. I love playing around with spices and herbs in my recipes. It’s amazing what a pinch of this and a dash of that can do for a meal. If your’re trying to become or stay lean, you’ll come to realize how excellent herbs and spices are when it comes to cooking. Your meals don’t need to be flavorless or plain for you to be lean. You CAN enjoy your “healthy” foods. Just start stocking up on yummy spices. The store shelves are stocked with TONS of options.

TURKEY BURGERS WITH A GARLIC BASIL SAUCE
Servings: 4
Bake Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients {burgers}
20 oz. Extra Lean Ground Turkey {I like the Honeysuckle White brand}
3 oz. mushrooms,chopped
1 oz. onions, chopped
2 egg whites
salt & pepper, to taste

Directions:
1.
Put all of your ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix together using your hands. This mixture is going to be kind of sticky. I like to make a ball with meat mixture and pat it down into one giant burger in the bottom of my bowl. Take my hand and “slice” an “X” pattern into the patty to divide it into 4 even parts. You’ll be making four 5 ounce turkey burgers.

2. Spray frying pan with Pam Olive Oil and heat it on low/medium heat. Place all 4 burgers into a frying pan and place lid on top. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes on each side. You’ll want to keep your heat medium/low so that the middle of the burgers have time to cook without burning the outsides.

3. While your burgers are cooking, start making the garlic basil sauce.

Ingredients {garlic basil sauce}
2 oz. Fat-Free Cream Cheese
1 tsp. fresh basil
1/2 tsp. pureed garlic
Dash of salt

Directions
1.
Mix ingredients together till smooth and creamy. Once your burgers are done cooking, spread sauce on top. I like using sandwich thins as my burger buns. They are low in calories and work perfectly if you want to toast them in the toaster.

Stephanie’s Tip
Since I’m on a low calorie and low carb diet, I will only eat 1/2 of a sandwich thin to cut out extra carbs and calories. I love eating my turkey burgers like an open faced sandwich. If your a dude and looking to increase your calories, I suggest you do 2 turkey burgers =) Lucky you, huh?
