We are a family that is trying to get healthy! Several years ago, I lost almost 40 pounds and while I kept it off for a while, I did have another baby and life happened. Now I am back to working on getting the weight back off. When I lost weight before, one major change I made was reducing the amount of complex carbs (breads, sugars, etc) that I eat.
Here is one of my favorite recipes that was a staple for the first time around and will be again!
Lettuce Wrapped Turkey Burgers
I mix the following ingredients to create my turkey burgers:
- Ground Turkey – 16 ounce package
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 tablespoons Tapatio sauce (yep..I like my burgers spicy)
Mix ingredients together and cook over medium heat. Wrap in a leaf of Romaine Lettuce and serve with your favorite toppings.
*My burgers are topped with a thin slice of cheddar, tomatoes, peppercinis, mustard and occasionally ketchup.
