Bacon-Wrapped Turkey Burgers


Serves four.

  • by from Quick fix Meals

Since ground turkey breast is super-lean, it partners well with fattier foods. Smoky bacon adds incredible flavor, as does the creamy blue cheese sauce. Since the flavors are so intense, I like to serve these burgers on whole wheat or whole grain buns. You can also add your favorite toppings, such as fried onions, lettuce, and sliced tomatoes.

  • Cooking spray
  • 1-1/4 lb. ground turkey breast
  • 1-1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 8 slices regular bacon or turkey bacon
  • 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 4 hamburger buns, preferably whole wheat

Coat a stove-top griddle or large skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat.

In a large bowl, combine the turkey and poultry seasoning until thoroughly mixed, then shape into 4 patties, each about 1 inch thick. Wrap two slices of bacon around each burger, covering the outer edge (secure with a wooden toothpick if necessary). Place the burgers on the hot griddle and cook until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the sour cream, blue cheese, and chives. Place burgers on buns and top with the blue cheese sauce.
