  • Cooking Time: 12 minutes


1 lb. ground lean turkey
1 Tbsp. salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
4 Tbsp. finely minced onion
2 garlic cloves, finely minced (almost to a paste)
Dash hot sauce


  1. Combine all of the ingredients, handling the meat lightly. Form mixture into 4 equal size patties.
  2. Prepare an outdoor grill, with the rack set 6 inches from the heat source. Coat the rack with cooking spray. Grill the patties on medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes per side, until the turkey is cooked through to an internal temperature of 165 F.
  3. Remove the patties from the grill and keep them warm until ready to serve. If desired, serve on a whole wheat bread thin with lettuce, tomato, onion, and your favorite condiments.

Trans Fat

While manufactured trans fats are bad for cardiovascular health, “natural” trans fats found in dairy products and meats, such as the ground turkey used here, seem to have no harmful effects.
