Southwest Turkey Burgers Made Easy

Southwest Turkey Burgers - Mimi's Fit Foods

This is a VERY easy, yet a delicious way to make turkey burgers.  All you do is add an egg white and salsa to your ground turkey, shape into patties, and grill (or broil).  I mean, really!  Does it get a whole lot easier than that?  I love to whip these up when I don’t have much energy to make dinner because I know that we can still eat something tasty, but it only takes a few minutes from start to finish!  You don’t have to worry about pulling out spices or teaspoons or anything of the sort.  It’s awesome and they taste awesome too!

Southwest Turkey Burgers Made Easy

1 pound ground turkey breast (I used 93% lean)
1/3 cup black bean and corn salsa, from jar (I used Great Value brand)
1 egg white
optional toppings (tomato, avocado, lettuce, etc.)

In a medium bowl, combine the turkey, salsa and egg white.  Mix well and then form into 4 patties.  Grill patties for about 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked throughout (you can also broil on each side for 5-6 minutes if you prefer not to grill).  If desired, serve with a few slices of tomato and avocado.

Serves 4.
