Main Dish: TERIYAKO TURKEY BURGERS - Thanks Virginia!
POINTSŪ Value: 6

Servings: 4

1 1/4 pound lean ground turkey

1 Tbsp ginger root, fresh, finely chopped

1 Tbsp minced garlic

1 tsp sesame oil

1/4 cup teriyaki sauce

1/4 cup scallion(s), chopped

2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, finely chopped

1 large egg white(s)

2 sprays cooking spray

8 medium scallion(s), root ends trimmed

4 reduced-calorie hamburger roll(s)

Preheat a grill (or grill pan) to medium-high; cover to maintain heat

In a large bowl, combine turkey, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, teriyaki sauce, chopped scallions, cilantro and egg white; mix thoroughly with your hands or a spoon.

Make 4 burgers, about 3 1/2-inches across and 3/4-inches wide.

Place burgers on a nonstick baking tray; coat with cooking spray. Flip burgers and coat other side with cooking spray.

Place burgers on heated grill (or grill pan) and cook, flipping once, until fully cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes per side. A few minutes before burgers are done, place whole scallions on center of grill and cook, turning once, until bright green and charred, about 2 minutes.

Remove burgers and scallions to a plate; lightly toast rolls on grill. Serve each burger on a roll topped with 2 scallions.
