Prep Time: 30 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
1 1/4 pounds JENNIE-O extra lean ground turkey
1 cup cooked quinoa
2 tablespoons egg beaters
1/2 a medium red onion, diced red
1/4 cup semi-soft soft goat cheese
1/4 cup raw walnuts roughly chopped
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 teaspoons honey mustard
12 fresh basil leaves (2 per burger)
1 medium avocado, thinly sliced
6 whole grain Sandwich thins or gluten free hamburger buns (Udi’s)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a small pot, add ¼ cup quinoa to ¾ cup of water. Bring to a boil, cover and let simmer for 20 minutes. Once cooked, fluff with a fork and set aside. While the quinoa is cooking, prepare all of the other ingredients and toppings for the burgers.
In a large mixing bowl gently combine the Jennie-O extra lean ground turkey, cooked quinoa, eggbeaters, red onion, walnuts, seasonings, and crumbled goat cheese. There will be about 6 cups of the mixture. Using a 1-cup scoop or your hands, gently form the mixture into six patties the size of your palm.
To cook the burgers, spray a nonstick skillet with olive oil, and cook the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side until the burgers are cooked through. Cook turkey as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165°F. as measured by a meat thermometer.
Place each burger on a bun with a 1 teaspoon dollop of honey mustard, 3 slices of avocado, and 2 fresh basil leaves.
