Caesar Burgers

Using ground turkey, this is a great burger recipe. Good for Phase 2 Fat Smash or higher.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Mince the 2 cloves of garlic. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. Mix the ground turkey meat, 3 tablespoons of the grated parmesan cheese, and the minced garlic. Shape the mixture into 4 oz patties.
  3. Grill for 6 minutes on each side or until the burgers are cooked through. Top each burger with 1 slice of cheese. Continue grilling for 1 minute or until cheese begins to melt.
  4. Toss the lettuce with 2 tablespoons of the caesar dressing and the remaining tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese.
  5. Divide the lettuce mixture evenly into 4 portions and spoon evenly onto the bottom part of the bun. Top with the meat patties and the remaining 4 tablespoons of the caesar dressing. Cover with the top bun.
  6. Note: if you are on phase 2 of the fat smash diet, do not use the whole wheat buns.

Take out the bun, use fat-free dressing, and go easy on the cheese, and it's not bad.
I'd have to change dressing, maybe for a vinigarette, but sounds good
