What’s For Dinner? Lettuce Wrapped Turkey Burgers

Healthy-Turkey-Burgers

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.
