Spicy Turkey Burgers

Amazing turkey burger recipe that's safe and delicious for Phase 1 of South Beach.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Mix ground turkey (lean if available), 1/2 cup mild or medium chunky salsa, shallots, cilantro, 3 tablespoons oil, hot sauce, cumin, salt, and pepper in large bowl.
  2. Shape turkey mixture into four 3 1/2 to 4" diameter patties on wax paper.
  3. Heat cooking spray in large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add burgers; cook until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Do not move around burgers until they have browned or they will fall apart.
  5. Reduce heat to low. Cover pan and sauté burgers for 2 minutes.
  6. Flip, and add a slice of low-fat cheese. Cover and sauté until burgers are cooked through and cheese is melted - another 2 minutes.
  7. Arrange lettuce leaves on 4 plates. Top each lettuce leaf with a tomato slice and burger. If allowed, enjoy on a toasted whole wheat roll.
  8. Note: these burgers freeze great - just put them between sheets of wax paper and throw them on the skillet for a quick and easy dinner! Also, you can try making 8 smaller burgers for kids or portion control.

Reviews 
unsuitable due to combination of onions [shallots] and hot sauce. Salsa is also questionable due to whether tomato is included in it.

I think this woulds work fine for South Beach OR Atkins, minus the bread for atkins or level one SB.Sound good to me!

Onion and Tomato limitations are no longer an issue and two tablespoons of salsa is allowed per day in phase one under the new guidelines. This sounds great and I plan to make this tonight!
This was awesome. My husband and I loved and even my oldest daughter who is not on SB couldn't stop eating them, even the left over's were gone after a day!

Loved it! Was really good, gave the turkey meat just the right amount of flavor, which is what I was looking for! Turkey burgers can be bland sometimes! Definitely making again!
