Oh my! You have to try this Saucy Turkey Burger with Pico. This delicious burger can be on the table as quick as it takes you to cook the turkey burger! Really. I was walking through the grocery store and stumbled across a bottle of chili sauce in the condiment aisle. I had never had it before, and it was on sale… so I thought “why not?” My next thought was “what can I make?” I came up with this saucy turkey burger with pico. This one comes in at 445 calories per burger (with bun and toppings) and 13 SmartPoints™. You could lower these totals by using 93% fat free ground turkey and low or no-fat Swiss cheese… However, the deliciousness of this burger made those SmartPoints™ worth it in my book. Pair it with some delicious broccoli or cauliflower, and you are good to go. Oh my. Enjoy.
Saucy Turkey Burger with Pico
1 pound ground turkey breast OR 4 pre-formed ground turkey patties
4 slices Swiss cheese
8 Tablespoons Chili Sauce (near ketchup, in the condiment aisle!)
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 Tablespoon black pepper
4 – 100% whole wheat hamburger buns
1/2 cup fresh pico de gallo
If using ground turkey breast, form four evenly-sized turkey patties from meat. Place patties in a large, non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Cook on one side until browned, approximately 2 minutes. Flip patties over and continue cooking on second side for an additional 2 minutes. Flip again, season with garlic salt and ground pepper. Continue cooking burgers, until no longer pink and a thermometer reads 165°F internally. Remove from heat. Top each burger with one slice of Swiss cheese. Allow to melt slightly. Place each burger on a bun bottom. Pour approximately 2 Tablespoons of chili sauce on each burger, followed by 1/8 cup pico. Top with bun and serve.
