I love Thanksgiving. The flavor palette of this holiday meal has me salivating for days before — and digesting/working it off for days after. But what if you could have all of the flavors of Thanksgiving and none of the trappings? And by ‘trappings’, I mean calories.
Imagine you had a shopping list of turkey, pumpkin, sweet potato, apples, raisins…wouldn’t you start thinking “Thanksgiving”?
Broiled Stuffed-Turkey Burger + Sweet Potatoes
The burger was made with ground turkey, poultry seasoning, thyme, and pumpkin seasoning. The ‘stuffing’ is dry oatmeal + chopped portobello mushroom I put in the mixture. For a tasty topping, I shredded a small amount of sweet potato and onion and broiled them alongside the burger.
So, there you have it…turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes — and pumpkin, apples + raisins (but not in pies). All of the flavors but none of calories from bread, fats, pastry, etc.
