Ingredients

  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 2 slices white bread, cut into cubes
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 lbs lean ground turkey breast
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 8 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese (1 oz each)

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until browned.
  2. Add onion, garlic, tomato and bread cubes, and cook until onion is softened and mixture is combined well, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and chill, covered, for 20 minutes or until completely cooled.
  3. In a small bowl, combine eggs, basil and parsley, and whisk until beaten well. In a large bowl, combine turkey, egg mixture, mushroom mixture, lemon juice, pepper and salt, and stir to combine well. Form 8 patties, transfer to a plate and chill, covered, for 30 minutes.
  4. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray and preheat the grill. Grill burgers for 6 minutes with grill lid open. Turn burgers, add a slice of cheese to each burger, and close grill lid. Grill for 6 minutes more, or until meat is no longer pink. Serve on multi-grain rolls with sliced lettuce, tomato and red onion for garnish, if desired.
