Burgers Burger Recipe Low Fat Burger Recipe Healthy Food Cheeseburgers Grilling
In this day and age, we’re seeing more people watching their fat intake for more reasons than ever before. Some of us are cutting back thanks to doctor’s warnings and others may simply not be happy with the way their favorite jeans are fitting these days. However, wanting to reduce the fat content in our meals and actually setting aside some of our favorite comfort foods for good are two different matters.
There are few foods as well-loved and widely enjoyed as the hamburger and it’s only natural to assume that cutting back on fat means saying good-bye to burgers forever. However, the truth is that a burger can be delicious and low in fat all at once. The following is an ultra-flavorful, low-fat burger recipe that has been filling bellies and pleasing crowds at my house for a while now. Try it for yourself and find out how delicious a low-fat diet can really be when you get a little creative!
The key is to substitute fatty beef for healthful ground turkey while making sure to infuse every bite with flavor and moisture through the use of simple, smart ingredients.
1 lb ground turkey
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup sweet onion (minced)
1 medium-sized jalapeno pepper (minced)
2 garlic cloves (crushed and minced)
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
A pinch or two of salt
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly using your hands and fingers. Then form into uniform patties of your preferred size and set aside. These make great full-sized burgers, but at my house, we love them best as appetizer-sized sliders.
These burgers are also perfectly delicious pan-fried on a cold day, but they’re honestly at their best when grilled outdoors over an open flame. Top with low-fat Swiss or provolone cheese if you’re a cheeseburger fan and garnish with fresh baby greens or spinach and thinly sliced sweet onions. Your family will flip… and trust me when I say they will never guess that they’re eating low-fat burgers. Enjoy!
