Tonight the final 4 contestants on American Idol are singing one hit wonders so I decided to experiment with some of this year’s hottest food fads.
The Atkins Diet has spawned a plethora of all meat food crazes and now every burger joint offers the anti-burger…a bunless mound of meat.
So for tonight’s Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers I’m going with a delicious southwestern seasoned turkey burger on soft and creamy butter lettuce.
Check out tonight’s recipe on Yahoo! Music’s Reality Rocks Blog!
Mini Bunless Turkey Burgers
- 20 oz package lean ground turkey
- 2 tbsp yellow onion, diced
- 2 tbsp red bell pepper, diced (plus some for garnishing)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp chile powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tsp chile in adobo, seeds removed
- 1/4 tsp adobo sauce
- 1 head butter lettuce
- 1/2 avocado, large dice
- 2 tbsp red onion, large dice
- 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
Combine the turkey and next 8 ingredients, through the black pepper, in a large bowl and mix until well combined.
Score meat into 8 even sections.
Form into 8 small patties.
Heat a grill top or outdoor grill over medium high heat.
Grill 5-6 minutes on each side until cooked through.
While the meat is cooking combine the mayonnaise, chile and adobo sauce in a small bowl and mix until well combined.
Top a piece of butter lettuce with a turkey burger plus a tablespoon of the mayonnaise. Top with the red onion, avocado, red bell pepper and sprinkle with the cilantro.
