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.
