Turkey Burgers with zucchini

Serving Size: 1 burger Old Points: 3 pts (bun extra) Points+: 4 pts

Calories: 156 Fat: 6.8 g Protein: 18.6 g Carb: 5.5 g Fiber: 1.3 g

1lb. 93% lean ground turkey

1 small zucchini, grated

1/4 cup breadcrumbs (I used panko)

1 clove garlic, grated

1 tbsp red onion, grated


Oil spray

I also added a dash of soy sauce, worchestershire & tabasco to add more flavor

grate zucchini, onion & garlic

In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, zucchini, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, salt and pepper.

Heat a large skillet on high heat. When hot, lightly spray oil. Add burgers to the pan and reduce the heat to low. Cook on one side until browned, then flip. Flip over a few times to prevent burning and to make sure the burgers are cooked all the way through

It was good, but I couldn't taste the grated veggies AT ALL. I guess the zucchini made it moister, but didn't add much in my opinion. Would be a good way to sneak veggies into kids!
