[Healthy_Recipes_For_Diabetic_Friends] Cajun Deluxe Turkey Burger


Cajun Deluxe Turkey Burger

12 oz extra lean ground turkey
8 slices Jennie O turkey bacon, lower sodium
1/2 tsp pepper, or to taste
1 tsp salt free Cajun seasoning, or to taste (store bought or homemade)
1 tsp garlic powder
4 slices red onion
4 lettuce leaves
4 slices tomato
4 slices cheese (I used Kraft slim cut sharp cheddar not processed cheese)
4 Flatout Foldit 5 grain and flax flatbreads (or a low carb bagel thin)
1/4 cup Mayo (optional)
2 tsp mustard (optional)

Grind or finely chop turkey bacon.

Combine the ground turkey, chopped bacon, pepper, garlic powder and
Cajun seasoning together well then form 4 patties. Ideally, make this
mixture at least 8 hours before cooking so that the turkey can marinate
with the other ingredients.

Heat grill to medium high heat. Grill turkey burgers approximately 14 to
16 minutes. Always cook to well done, 165 degrees F as measured by a
meat thermometer. Melt a slice of cheese on each burger.

Spread 1 tsp mayo and 1/2 tsp mustard on flatout foldit then layer the
lettuce, tomato, onion and burger.
