My girlfriend and her son came over for dinner tonight. I am not too familiar with what her son eats so I asked her in advance what he likes. After talking with her, I thought it would be best to keep things simple and decided on hamburgers for dinner. To keep dinner low fat, I combined half the burger meat with 93% lean ground beef and half with ground turkey breast. I use ground turkey breast because it only has 1 gram of fat per serving instead of 7 grams in ground turkey meat. It is important to look at the packaging because the difference in fat is significant.
There isn’t much of a recipe to write of except that I added a little Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke to add a nice grilled flavor. If you want something easy or are not sure what your company likes, this is a simple recipe that you may like to try.
Enjoy & Happy Grilling!
