Turkish turkey burger
½ small, yellow variety, grated
Uncooked boneless skinless turkey breast
¼ tsp, freshly ground
Whole wheat pita(s)
4 small, (6-inch each)
1 large, cut into 4 thick slices
- Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray; preheat the broiler.
- Place the pine nuts in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Add the cumin and cinnamon and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
- Heat the oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring constantly, until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add to the nuts in the bowl. Add the turkey, egg white, salt, and pepper and mix well. Form into 4 burgers.
- Arrange the burgers on the broiler rack; broil 4 inches from the heat until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the side of a burger registers 165°F, 5 – 6 minutes on each side. Serve the burgers in the pitas with a slice of tomato. Yields 1 burger per serving.
