Turkey burgers in Lettuce wraps



I always loved turkey burgers and love too in bread but when I saw this turkey burgers in lettuce I think to make of course:)
I found in LadyHome Journal and I made and freeze, you can grill or make in a frying pan.








Ingredients

500 grams package ground white meat turkey
1/2  cup finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic minced
1 cup grated zucchini
1 carrot grated
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
1/3 cup chopped cilantro, plus more for serving
1 small jalapeño seeded and finely chopped
1 large egg white
1/3 cup plain bread crumbs or panko
canola oil
lettuce leaves
salt

Optative
Mayonaise
mashed avocado
basil

Method
                       Add turkey, onion, garlic, zucchini, carrot, ginger, jalapeno, cilantro,  egg white and bread crumbs or panko to a bowl; mix with hands until completely combined.
 With oiled hands use 1/2 cup of the mixture to form each patty (each about 1/2 inch thick).
                        Heat grill to medium-high. Brush patties with oil and grill, covered, turning once to cook through, 2 to 3 min on each side. (or fry in a frying pan by some minutes until are cook)
                        Serve in lettuce leaves with extra cilantro and grated carrots,  and a squeeze of lime.
I think the grated zucchini is a plus in these burgers because are more juicy.
Enjoy:))

Hamburguesas de pavo en wraps de lechuga












 Estas hamburguesas de pavo son absolutamente deliciosas y me encantó en estos wraps de lechuga.
Las he hecho 2 veces y las dejo congeladas.
Asi tengo cuando quiero algo rápido pero sano y delicioso.
Las hace muy jugosas porque llevan zapallo italiano rallado le da una textura muy buena.

Ingredientes

1/2 taza de cebolla picada fina
1 ajo picado o aplastado
1 taza de zapallito italiano rallado
1 zanahoria rallada
1 cucharadita de jengibre rallado o molido
1/3 taza de cilantro picado fino
1 aji pequeño picado y sin semillas (optativo)
1 clara de huevo
1/3 taza de pan rallado o panko
sal a gusto
aceite
hojas de lechuga

para acompañar
palta molida o en trozos
mayonesa
albahaca


Preparación

En un bol colocar la carne de pavo molida, la cebolla picada, el zapallito, el ajo y la zanahoria rallada, agregar el jengibre, la sal, el cilantro la clara de huevo y el panko o pan rallado.
Mezclar con las manos hasta que esten totalmente mezclados.
Poner a calentar el sarten con un poco de aceite o si se hará en un gril pintarlas con un poco de aceite.
Cocinar dandolas vueltas por cada lado unos 2 a tres minutos.
Servir en hojas d elechuga. O en pan pita o de hambuerguesa.
Se pueden hacer y congelar tambien.

    1. the grated zucchini is a great idea! I'm going to try that! Sometimes I add a little olive oil, but zucchini would be more healthy!

    It enhances the flavor and is healthier and lighter than the classic version.

  50. ¡Mi querida Gloriaaaaaa!
    Vengo a que me regañes... ¡No! Es broma. :))) Pero me ha hecho mucha gracia tu comentario en casa Pepinho. Jejeje... Con lo que nos queremos. Y por mi culpa, no hablamos casi, que voy de cabeza y no entro en casi ninguna web. Mal, mal, mal. :)
    ¿Cómo estás? ¿y la familia? Espero que muy bien, seguro que muy bien cuidados todos, con esa mami de 10 que tienen, que les prepara todas estas cosas tan ricas. Como estos burgers o esos pancitos con semillas de antes, que me han enamorado porque se ven riquísimos, y la taza y el plato con ese gallo también. Qué preciosidad de menaje tienes siempre, amiga. Qué buen gusto.
    ¿Has visto qué rebonito nuestro ahijado Teo? Para comérselo.
    Muchos besos, amiga. A ver si no tardo tanto en venir otra vez... ¡Regáñame siempre que quieras!

    1. Rosita por supuesto que no te voy a regañar amiga.
      Viste que Pepinho no entendio y se molesto conmigo?
      Es como si no me conociera.
      Por eso le explique que te estaba solo molestando o embromando.
      Como has estado?
      Con la unica que hablo es la olga siempre me comenta o hablamos por mail.
      Teo esta precioso y le dije a Pepinho pero a veces no me pesca.
      En fin.
      Gracias por tu visita amiga.Siempre me alegras el corazon

      Ya sabes que siempre espero que vengas.muchos besos!@

    2. Estoy muy feliz de que hayas venido.
