Lightbulb Turkey burgers

I had a lovely ground turkey breast burger last night by adding a bit of low-fat mozzarella and some cinnamon to it, then grilling it up. I didn't know what to expect, except for some burnt cheese on the grill.

But the cinnamon was a fabulous addition! I used just a dash, but it really came through nicely. I read somewhere that cinnamon was good for dieters, so I thought I'd pass that along. I hope it's allowed on Phase 1, because I see quite a few such Thanksgiving burgers in my future!

Also, the turkey I buy is specifically only ground breast and has very little fat. I noticed another post mentioning the various types of ground turkey and thought I'd mention it.

They're not OP, but prior to the SBD I would sometimes make DH blue cheese burgers by forming two very thin patties, sprinkling some crumbled blue cheese on one, and then topping it with the other and pressing them to seal together. Then I'd broil or grill it for him. It makes a pocket of warm, melty cheesy goo - so if you like that idea, you could try it with the turkey and mozzarella, too.

Long-term goal - to keep up with my toddler!

Walls for the wind,
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks beside the fire -
Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire!

hey I just finish a ground chicken burger kinda the same. I mixed in chopped onion, mushroom, fresh basil and some pepper jack cheese. It was delish servied ontop a bed of spinach with horseradish mustard!!

I love the cinnamon idea though maybe my next one.

I will not surrender. I will not turn against myself when things get tough. I will never show weakness on the outside. The tougher and tighter the situation the more I will love it.
