Monday Morning (Super Bowl Turkey Burgers)

And the kitty strikes again!!!

This one made both my husband and I laugh hysterically. I am still laughing now. :)

The Super Bowl was definitely worth watching last night - those last few minutes were intense! Congratulations, Steelers!!! 

The night was bittersweet because it was such a fun game, but on the other hand, it signals the end of Football Season - which is something that I look forward to with excitement and anticipation every year - even though I know that my beloved Vikings will always let me down. :(

Last night's Turkey Burgers were fabulous! They stayed very moist and tasted delish! Here is the recipe that I used:

Super Bowl Turkey Burgers

1 1/4 lb ground turkey breast
1/2 c whole wheat breadcrumbs
2 TB flax seed
3 TB chicken bouillon
1/2 c water
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste
1 TB natural low-sodium tamari (soy sauce) - watch out for preservatives in some soy sauces
Dash worcestershire sauce

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together with your hands until the ingredients comes together - do not over mix. Gently form into 5 patties. Spray a grill pan with olive oil and preheat to medium. Grill for 5 - 6 minutes per side, until no longer pink in the middle.

Serve with sprouted wheat buns and your favorite toppings. 

Tip: Heat tinfoil wrapped Sprouted Wheat buns in a 350° oven for 5 - 6 minutes, they will be crusty on the outside and soft in the middle.

Toping Options:
- Organic Ketchup (or homemade ketchup from the Eat-Clean Diet Family and Kids Book)
- Organic Pickles (regular ones usually have preservatives and dyes)
- Tomato slices
- Lettuce
- Hummus
- Mustard (yellow or Dijon)

Cooler 1 Substitutions:
  • Substitute rolled oats for the whole wheat bread crumbs
  • Eliminate the bun, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce
  • Eat with a fork and enjoy!
  • Portions: 1 Protein, 1/4 Grain serving
