RECIPE: Grilled Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey



1 lb (16 oz) ground turkey (7% fat)
1 lb (16 oz) ground turkey (99% fat free)
½ C whole wheat bread crumbs
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1/3 C sun-dried tomatoes (diced)
3 tsp ground pepper
2 tbsp garlic, minced
3 tbsp fresh chives, diced
2 tbsp fresh parsley, diced
½ tbsp. fresh basil, diced
2 tsp lemon zest


  1. Add all ingredients into large mixing bowl and knead together until evenly distributed. Place bowl in refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes or overnight (chilling the mixture makes it easier to divide and make patties).
  2. Preheat grill to 450
  3. Pull bowl out of refrigerator and divide mixture into 8 patties
  4. Spray grill with cooking spray to prevent patties from sticking. Place patties on the grill and cook 3-4 minutes per side for medium (or to internal temperature reading 160). The thinner the patty, the shorter the cooking time
  5. Remove from grill and enjoy
