I have to say that this is one of Paula Deen’s less unhealthy recipes, however, I still healthified it a little. You can see the original recipe here.
And here is my version, adapted from Paula Deen:
2 lbs. lean ground turkey
1 oz. fresh basil, finely chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
Mix all of these ingredients together. Form into small patties – you can make them any size you want, but I made them quite small and ended up with about 30 little burgers. Cook these on a skillet until they are cooked through and smell delicious. I also did not make Paula’s red pepper mayo, although it sounds delicious. Instead I just garnished with lettuce, tomato, and a little mustard!
I highly recommend – it’s easy, healthy, and different than your average burger. Enjoy!
