As our family has moved toward eating more healthy, we are always on the look out for healthy meals, as well as, snacks. This burger recipe is great for both. Make them for dinner one night and then eat the leftovers for a healthy snack paired with a complex carb. We made these two weeks in a row they were so delicious. Try them and see!
1 cup high protein cereal flakes (used Original Special K)
1/2 c skim milk
3 tsp. instant low sodium chicken bouillon
3 T. minced onion
2 egg whites
1 lb. lean ground turkey (to make it the healthiest make sure to use ground turkey breast)
Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl. Let the milk soak into the flakes and the other ingredients for five minutes. Add lean ground turkey. Mix well with clean bare hands. Shape into patties and grill. I used a grill pan, grilling until they reached 165 degrees.
Serve on a toasted bun. Makes 6 burgers.
