First Lady, Michelle Obama, has started a great campaign called, Let's Move! She states, "This isn’t just a policy issue for me. This is a passion. This is my mission. I am determined to work with folks across this country to change the way a generation of kids thinks about food, nutrition and physical activity"!
We love this campaign and we love the turkey burger recipe from the White House Executive Chef. It's healthy & absolutely delicious. It has a light texture with a subtle lemon & herb flavor. It's going in the dinner repertoire and is definitely company-worthy.
turkey burger recipe:
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup panko crumbs (*we added an additional Tablespoon*)
1 egg white (*we used a whole egg*)
2 Tablespoons minced scallions
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Zest & juice of 1 lemon
1 Tablespoon of canola oil
(1.) In a large bowl, blend ground turkey with panko, egg white, scallions, garlic, soy sauce, parsley, lemon zest and juice. Shape into 4 equal patties (*we made 6 patties out of this recipe*).
(2.) Heat canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook turkey patties for about 5-7 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
These would be delicious topped with cheese, sliced tomato and/or avocado.
