Turkey Burgers

ok....the first week is tough!! been thru this many times....but boy do i dislike change...you would think after counselling people with addictions for 30 years i would be a "pro"...well, i am ... i can talk it....doing it is a whole other thing....but don't you find that when you start to eat differently all you think about is food...anyway...stop crying and just do it!! so tonight was Turkey Burgers from a recipe i used from food network...not bad......
Turkey Burgers
1 pound ground turkey breast
1 cup chopped red onions
1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers
2 egg whites
1/4 cup chopped fresh watercress leaves (i used parsley)
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
2 Tablespoons jerk seasoning
Combine until well blended...make 6 equal patties...spray non-stick pan with canola oil cooking spray...cook on each side about 3 minutes...than i put into the oven for awhile...need it well done for me given it is poultry...instead of rolls used the thin high fiber bread....was good..
My DH is not home yet....they are waiting for him....he is willing to give this a go...oh, for a quarter pounder with cheese....but my arteries are thanking me.....
