This is a lighter version of a tasty burger that people enjoyed at a place I once worked. I substituted the beef with turkey and used low-fat cheese, but the results are tastier than the original crowd-pleaser. —Vicki Schurk of Hamden, Connecticut

Ingredients

  • 3 slices whole wheat bread, torn
  • 1 cup fat-free milk, divided
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground turkey

  • 6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
  • 6 lettuce leaves

Directions

In a large bowl, soak bread in 1/2 cup milk for 1 minute. Add the garlic, mustard, salt and pepper. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties; set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine flour and remaining milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Add cheese and jalapeno; stir until cheese is melted. Keep warm.
Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Grill patties, covered, over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165°. Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato and jalapeno cheese sauce. Yield: 6 servings.
