I'm passing along a recipe I came across at the Diabetic Gourmet Magazine, Avocado Turkey Burger. It's made using Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. Check out the Diabetic Gourmet Magazine and it's great selection of Diabetic Friendly recipes. http://diabeticgourmet.com/
Avocado Turkey Burger
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 (16-ounce) package Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast
2 teaspoons no-salt seasoning
5 small whole wheat buns
5 slices light Cheddar cheese
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1 - Drain applesauce in a strainer to eliminate excess liquid. Mix ground turkey, applesauce and no-salt seasoning.
2 - Form mixture into 5 patties. Cook patties according to package directions. Always cook to well-done, 165F as measured by a meat thermometer.
3 - Place burgers on bun bottoms. Top with cheese and avocado. Cover with bun top.
Always cook to an internal temperature of 165F.
