How to Make Turkey Burgers

Turkey burgers are a great low fat alternative to your typical hamburger. Top with cabbage, red onion and the sauce of your choice for a beautiful and delicious meal.

Directions
1. 
In a large bowl combine egg white and bread crumbs. (If using veal or beef, stir in 2 tablespoons water.) Stir in carrot, onion, green sweet pepper, salt, and pepper. Add Parmesan cheese and ground meat; mix well. Shape meat mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
2. 
Spray a cold grill rack with nonstick spray coating. Then, place rack on grill.
3. 
Grill burgers on an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 7 minutes. Turn and grill 8 to 11 minutes more or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F with an instant read thermometer. Place 1 tomato slice atop each burger and grill 1 minute more. Makes 4 servings.
