Recipe

To begin, I almost never eat turkey burgers. When I am craving a burger usually I want the real thing, medium rare, in all of its glory. For me they just don’t compare most of the time and tend to be drier and just have less flavor. However a couple days ago I tried a sample of Whole Foods Cowboy Turkey Burger and it was surprisingly delicious and full of flavor. I knew I wanted to make a copy cat version at home. These turkey burgers are made special by the presence of chopped onions and jalapenos in the burger, along with some cheddar cheese. You can serve it up with your favorite condiments, it’s especially good with barbecue sauce, and on your favorite low calorie roll or on a bed of greens. Want to make it even more delicious? Crisp up two slices of bacon and then crumble and add to the turkey burger mixture. Yum. It will add 1 point per serving.
