Number of servings

Serves 4

Ingredients

  1. 1 pound ground turkey breast
  2. 1/4 cup dried bread crumbs
  3. 1/4 cup chopped onion
  4. 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  6. 1 teaspoon Tabasco (hot) sauce
  7. 4 whole-grain buns
  8. 4 slices tomato
  9. 4 slices red onion
  10. 2 bibb lettuce leaves, halved
  11. 4 tablespoons ketchup

Directions

Combine the ground turkey breast, bread crumbs, chopped onion, parsley, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce in a large bowl. Mix well. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions and form into patties.

Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.

Grill burgers until nicely browned on both sides and heated through, about 7 minutes a side. Serve each burger on a bun topped with 1 tomato slice, 1 onion slice, 1/2 lettuce leaf and a dollop of ketchup.
