All American Hamburgers

Here's a simple all American classic hamburger recipe that is fast and good for you. And, if you want to make them even lower in fat, use ground turkey instead of beef.

Cook these in the kitchen, or fire up the bbq, and grill these outside at your next cook out.

Classic Hamburger Recipe

Ingredients: 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey or lean ground beef, 1 cup of bread crumbs, 1 egg, 1/4 cup diced onions, 2 tablespoons butter, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.

Directions: Mix turkey, bread crumbs, egg, onions, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Shape into 4 patties.

Melt butter in large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add patties and cook, turning once to brown other side. If using turkey, cook until golden brown outside and white inside. If using beef, cook until brown on the outside and no longer pink on the inside, about 10 minutes.

Serve with toasted whole wheat buns, lettuce, tomatoes and condiments.

Serves 4
