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 | Mini Van Dreams


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.
