Turkey-Cranberry Burgers
Ingredients
1/2
cup finely shredded carrot
1/4
cup thinly sliced green onions
2
tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
2
tablespoons fat-free milk
1/4
teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon ground black pepper
12
ounces uncooked ground turkey breast or chicken breast
1
cup mixed baby greens
4
whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
1/2
cup whole cranberry sauce
Directions
  1. In a medium bowl, stir together carrot, green onions, bread crumbs, milk, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add ground turkey; mix well. Shape the turkey mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  2. Place patties on a greased grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until patties are done (165 degrees F),* turning once halfway through grilling.
  3. Arrange mixed greens on bottoms of buns. Top with grilled patties and cranberry sauce; replace top halves of buns.
From the Test Kitchen
Broiling Directions:

Place patties on greased unheated broiler pan rack. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 11 to 13 minutes or until done (165 degrees F),* turning once halfway through broiling

*Test Kitchen Tip:

The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey or chicken patty cooked to 165 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
