Turkey burgers with a cayenne pepper kick! Here's a fun way to turn boring turkey burgers into something with a little more exciting. If you're a buffalo wing fan, you'll love the flavors in this turkey burger topped with a broccoli slaw tossed with my very own homemade blue cheese dressing.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli slaw
  • 1/4 cup skinny blue cheese dressing
  • 1.25 lbs 93% lean ground turkey
  • 2/3 cup grated carrots (grate in food processor)
  • 1/4 cup seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 clove garlic (grated)
  • 1 tbsp red onion (grated)
  • 1/4 cup Franks Hot Sauce
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • oil spray
  • 5 slices reduced fat cheddar
  • 5 whole wheat burger buns (I used Martin's 100 calorie Potato Whole Wheat Buns)

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl combine broccoli slaw and skinny blue cheese dressing. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, carrots, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Makes 5 equal patties, 5.5 oz each.
  • Heat a large skillet on high heat. When hot, lightly spray the oil. Add burgers to the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Cook on one side until browned 4-5 minutes, then flip.
  • Cook another 4 minutes or until burgers are cooked all the way through (keep heat medium-low to prevent burning); top with cheese and place on a toasted burger buns topped with broccoli slaw.
  • If grilling, clean grill well before cooking and spray with oil spray to prevent sticking.
