A hearty and fun take on the usual turkey burger….
1 pound lean ground turkey
4 egg whites or 1/2 cup egg substitute
1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs (I used 1 oroweat double fiber English muffin put in a blender)
½ cup diced white onion
3/4 cup chopped mushrooms
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Place egg whites/substitute in a large bowl and beat vigorously while stirring in the parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Add ground turkey, mushrooms and onion and mix well. Add bread crumbs, and knead into turkey mixture until evenly distributed. Form 8 patties and place on a heated nonstick pan or grill. Heat 10 minutes on each side on high heat or until no longer pink on the inside.
Makes about 8 patties
