Ingredients

  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1/2 lb ground turkey breast
  • 1 tsp crushed fennel seeds
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup plain whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 8 mini multigrain kaiser rolls

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, combine beef, turkey, fennel, oregano, crushed red pepper, garlic powder, milk and bread crumbs. Mix well. Shape mixture into 8 patties, 1/2 inch thick.
  2. Lightly coat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat until hot. Add onion, bell pepper and water; cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove vegetables from skillet and cover to keep warm.
  3. Wipe skillet clean and spray again with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat until hot. Add patties and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until there is no pink in the center. Serve patties topped with vegetables and BBQ sauce, if using, on Kaiser rolls.
