This past Monday was National Hamburger Day, so I'd be remiss if I didn't share a mouthwatering, diabetic-friendly burger recipe with you this week! Try out this Grilled Herb Burger from Diabetic Living and let me know what you think!
1 egg white, lightly beaten
2/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup snipped fresh oregano and/or basil or 2 teaspoons dried oregano and/or basil, crushed
1/4 cup ketchup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound uncooked ground turkey breast
8 whole wheat ciabatta rolls, split and toasted
16 slices tomato
Fresh oregano and/or basil sprigs (optional)
Goat cheese (chevre), arugula, and/or red onion slices (optional)
1. In a large bowl combine egg white, onion, Parmesan cheese, the 1/4 cup oregano, the ketchup, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add beef and turkey; mix well. Shape meat mixture into eight 3/4-inch-thick patties.
2. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill patties on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 14 to 18 minutes or until no longer pink (165 degrees F),* turning once halfway through grilling time.
3. Serve burgers on rolls with tomato slices. If desired, top with fresh oregano and/or basil sprigs, dollops of goat cheese, arugula, and/or red onion slices.
