Ingredients

    1 package lean ground turkey (about 1 lb.)
    1/2 cup tomato sauce
    1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated; divided
    1 tbsp italian seasoning
    2 tsp dijon mustard
    1 package mushrooms (cremini or portabella)
    2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    4 slices of italian bread
    2 cups marinara sauce
    4 slices provolone cheese

Directions

1) Preheat broiler.

2) In a medium mixing bowl, combine turkey, tomato sauce, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, italian seasoning and dijon mustard. Form mixture into 4 patties.

3) place turkey patties in broiler for about 12 minutes. Turn and cook until no longer pink in the center, about 12 more minutes. (Can also do on the grill for about 6 minutes per side.)

4) Clean mushrooms by wiping them with a damp cloth. Remove and discard stems. Brush mushrooms with olive oil (or just spray them with spray olive oil). Place on cookie sheet and broil for about 2-4 minutes per side.

5) Place Italian bread slices on a baking sheet and place under broiler until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes.

6) Heat marinara in microwave or on stove-top.

7) Top each turkey burger with mushrooms and a piece of provolone and place in broiler until cheese melts.

8) Top each piece of toasted bread with turkey burger, mushrooms, and provolone. Then put 1/2 cup marinara sauce on each and top with 1 tbsp of grated parmesan cheese (fresh would work here as well).

Hint: If you are not eating all of these at once and you are saving some for another meal, refrigerate everything together, except the bread. This receipe works best if you don't add the bread until you are ready to eat (or it gets mushy)!
