This burger definitely falls under the healthy category – a must for BBQs this summer if you’re counting calories. The recipe came from one of the swaps I participate in, and I have to say, I was a little skeptical about it at first.
I knew that the zucchini would give the turkey meat an even softer texture than it already had…combine that with the fact that there was no bread, and I got nervous. Then, I formed the burgers and really got worried. They were super soft…so soft that I was afraid they’d break while on the grill.
Well, not only did they stay together…they were delicious! I topped them with swiss cheese, and of course I had a nice big slice of onion on mine 🙂
