Recipe of the Week

Here's a recipe that was posted on my BFL Women's Group. I haven't tried it yet, but it's sounds tasty. Personally I 'd cut out some of the bread and have it open-faced, but that's just 'cause I'm still planning on having a six pack... someday...And unless you want to bloat up - drink plenty of aqua fresca - this one's got a fair amount of sodium...Let me know if you try this and what you thought. Healthy eating, everyone!

Barbecue Turkey Burgers

1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup barbecue sauce, divided
2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound ground turkey
Cooking spray
4 large leaf lettuce leaves
4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
4 (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns

Combine the onion, 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce, breadcrumbs, and the next 5 ingredients (breadcrumbs through turkey) in a medium bowl. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1 1/2 inch-thick patty. Heat a grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Place patties in pan; cook 7 minutes on each side or until done. Place 1 lettuce leaf, 1 tomato slice, and 1 patty on the bottom half of each bun. Spread each patty with 1 1/2 teaspoons barbecue sauce. Cover with top halves of buns.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 burger)
