Turkey Burger with Gruyere cheese and caramelized onions accompanied by baked sweet potato fries.
- 1½ Pounds Lean Ground Turkey
- 3 Cloves Garlic, minced
- ½ Tablespoon Chile Powder
- ½ Tablespoon Dried Thyme
- 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 Teaspoons Salt
- ½ Teaspoons red Pepper flakes
- 6 slices of Gruyere cheese
- 3 whole wheat burger bread
- 1 Tablespoon minced white onion
Combine the turkey, garlic, chile powder, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, salt, minced onion and pepper into a large bowl.
After mixing form each patty into a round shape; Make 6 oz patties. Use your thumb to make a small well in the center, on either side, of each turkey patty. This will keep the patty from plumping up in the middle.
Preheat a large pan or skillet over medium heat. Place the turkey patties in the pan and allow them to cook for approximately 7 to 8 minutes on the first side. Do not press the patties with a spatula. Next, carefully turn the patties over, place the cheese on the top of each patty and allow them to cook for another 3 to 4 minutes.
Once the patties are done and the cheese is melted, place each patty on a toasted bun. Serve immediately. Top with your favorite toppings.
EatSmart Scale Review
I was sent the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale to review. As I’ve mentioned in previous post I will need a scale to measure my protein intake while prepping for Bikini Competition. I was so excited to receive this scale, and I couldn’t wait till I started preparation so I decided to use scale to measure the Turkey burger patties above.
Max weight is 11 pounds
Displays 4 different units-pounds, grams, kilograms, ounces
3 minute auto shutoff to preserve battery
Tare Feature; Subtract the weight of any plate or container
Comes with an EatSmart Guidebook to Calorie Counting (Which I plan on referencing a lot)
I really liked the attractive and modern design, I like the chrome color they sent me. I love that it converts to different units to help with recipes that use different measurements. Also its compacted size is a bonus for me since it won’t take up too much space. I can even take it with me while traveling, that’s how light weight it is. It’s also very straight forward and simple to use, power on/off set measuring unit , put item on scale and that’s it. You guys will be seen this scale a lot in my food preparation photos and videos.
Overall, if you are in the market for a budget scale that offers various weight measurements. Look no further. The Eat Smart Precision Pro Scale will be sufficient in meeting these needs in quality, and afford-ability. You can find it here on sale at Amazon for just $25. Can’t get any better than that.
Thank you Karen Welby from Eatsmart for this opportunity.
