These bruschetta turkey patties are so delicious you won't even miss the burger bun! Plus there is broccoli hidden in the patty but, shh! Don't tell!
Ingredients
  • ½ lb. lean, ground turkey meat
  • 1 small head of broccoli, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp. parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • ¼ cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 chopped tomato
  • 2 tbsp. chopped basil
Instructions
  1. In a large Ziploc bag, combine first six ingredients (through pepper) and mix well. Divide mixture into eight equal portions.
  2. Line the lid of a peanut butter jar with plastic wrap. Place one portion of the turkey mixture into lid and press down. Top turkey with cheese, and then place another portion of the turkey on top. Seal the sides well. Continue until you have four patties and all the turkey mixture is gone.
  3. Grill patties for about eight minutes or until turkey is no longer pink inside.
  4. Meanwhile, set a pan to medium-high heat and pour in the balsamic vinegar. Allow vinegar to reduce to a syrupy liquid.
  5. When vinegar is almost done reducing, add in tomatoes and basil.
  6. Remove patty from grill and top with tomato, basil, balsamic reduction.
  7. Enjoy!
