I am not sure about you but my yearly goal is to lose weight and on February 1, 2016 I am going to start that goal. I want to see what I can lose for weight by summer just in time for swimsuit season. Did you watch the Biggest Loser last night? Well, they featured a recipe using Jennie-O that I want share with you. I can’t wait to make it myself.
Turkey Bacon Burger
1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast
1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey
½ cup minced onion
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
10 lettuce leaves
10 tomato slices
20 sweet onion slices
avocado slices, if desired
pickled jalapeño slices, if desired
mustard, if desired
DirectionsIn large mixing bowl, combine ground turkey,onion, garlic and pepper*. Form into 10 patties. Ideally, make this mixture at least 8 hours before cooking so that the turkey can marinate with the other ingredients. Freeze any extra formed patties to thaw later.
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Grill turkey burgers approximately 14 to 16 minutes. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Layer lettuce, tomato, turkey burger and onion. Top with avocado, pickled jalapeño and mustard, if desired.
*JENNIE-O also recommends adding 15 slices of chopped, uncooked JENNIE-O Turkey Bacon to the meat mixture. For ease of chopping, place bacon slices in freezer for 15 minutes. Chop finely while still firm.
