Mariano’s had turkey breast on sale for $4.99 this week which is an awesome price. I haven’t had a turkey burger in the longest time and that sounded good to me.
Have you seen turkey burger recipes that call for bread crumbs and eggs? That sounds more like a meatloaf to me that masks the turkey instead of highlighting it.
The secret to my turkey burgers? Butter in the middle!
This time I just used a teaspoon of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light in between the patties. Simple seasoning with Dak’s steakhouse seasoning, salt and pepper.
Turkey Burger Sliders
The secret to a juicy turkey burger is butter in the middle! Simple spread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light and pinky swear you won’t have another dry turkey burger.
- 6 ounces ground turkey breast
- 2 teaspoons I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
- 1 teaspoon Dak’s steakhouse seasoning
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese
- 1 tablespoon real bacon bits
- 2 pretzel bun slider rolls
Divide the burger patties into 1.5 ounce portions. Spread 1 teaspoon of the butter on one patty, then put the other 1.5 ounce patty on top, crimping together to bring the burger together, so you will have two three ounce burgers.
Heat skillet over medium heat. Season with the steak seasoning, salt and pepper on both sides. Cook burger for 4 minutes, flip. At the 3 minute mark after the flip, add the cheese and bacon. I cooked with a lid on, so my burger reached 165 in 8 minutes total.
Serve on a pretzel bun with your favorite toppings. I kept mine simple with romaine lettuce and mustard.
On the purple and blue plans on WW, each burger is 4 WW points. On green, you have to count the turkey, so each burger is 5 WW points.
I thought I would eat both, but one was filling!
I got the pretzel buns at Mariano’s – a six pack was only $2.99 and each one while 3 points is only 110 calories. So good!
