Grilled Turkey Burgers Supreme

Grilled Turkey Burgers Supreme

Burger satisfaction without tons of calories

In this week's food challenge, we learned that several Biggest Loser contestants used to chow down on double cheeseburgers, consuming thousands of calories in one sitting. Trainer Dolvett Quince showed them a much healthier burger alternative:

1 package extra lean seasoned turkey burger patties
4 slices reduced fat muenster, provolone, or cheddar cheese (optional )
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted, or grilled, if desired
4 red or romaine lettuce leaves
4 thin slices red onion
4 slices tomato

Prepare grill. Coat patties with cooking spray. Grill the burgers as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer.

Place cheese over patties during last minute of cooking, if desired. Split buns. On bun bottoms, add lettuce leaves, grilled patties, red onion, and tomato slices; add bun top. Serve with desired condiments.

Always cook to an internal temperature of 165°

Makes 4 servings.
