Zesty Basil Burgers

Submitted by: JULIETTECAKE


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound lean ground turkey
    3 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    4 whole wheat hamburger buns
    1 cup packed spinach leaves
    4 tomato slices

    Basil Mayonnaise

    3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
    1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
    1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

Tips

I substitute greek yogurt for mayonnaise due to a food allergy. These burgers would also be wonderful on the grill.


Directions

In medium bowl, combine ground beef, onion, garlic, salt and pepper, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four oval 1/2 inch thick patties.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 7 to 8 minutes or until no longer pink and juices run clear, turning once.

Meanwhile in small bowl, combine Basil mayonnaise ingredients; mix well.

Line bottom half of each roll with spinach and tomato; top with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture. Close with top half of roll.

Serving Size: Makes 4 burgers
