Recipe #3/Ry's Journey


These burgers really turned out GREAT! I was a little worried after my Orange Chicken wasn’t as I expected, but THESE, they were delish! I was worried they would turn out dry or fall apart, neither happened. I served them with oven fries, which are 3 points for a serving size. I just had another burger for lunch and I think it was better today than last night! One thing I did do was after I made the patties, I stuck them in the fridge for 30 minutes so that they could firm up and so the flavors could soak in. I will DEFINITELY be making these bad boys again! I also had 1 point hamburger buns, which are VERY easy to find.

Tonight were headed out to dinner so I won’t be getting my Weight Watcher cookbook out, but will defiantly get back to cooking this weekend. Enjoy your WED! HALF WAY TO FRIDAY!

Monterey Jack Turkey Burgers
6 points for 1 burger :)
Ry's Rating: 9!!
My Husband: 8.5, and he doens't like turkey burgers :)

3/4 pound ground skinless turkey breast
2 scallions, minced
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
4 strips turkey bacon (I used salad bacon bits, they are better for you and taste better)
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted

1 tablespoon of Worchestershire Sauce
1 tablespoon of Dale's Seasoning
Goya seasoning


1. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, bacon bits, scallions, soy sauce, ketchup, garlic and pepper. Blend in the cheese, then form into 4 burgers.

2. Heat an indoor ridged grill sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Cook the burgers until cooked through, 6-8 minutes on each side.
