Provolone Cordon Bleu Turkey Burgers

My husband and I love turkey burgers. They are so moist, juicy, and flavored ... But the best part about them is how lean and guilt-free they are.

We love to experiment with different variations of turkey burgers. This week we invented a Cordon Bleu with Provolone turkey burger.

Mix one pack of lean ground turkey with one egg white, 1/4c oats, 1 tbsp hickory-smoked BBQ sauce, finely chopped red onions, garlic, sea salt and pepper all together. Then thinly slice extra lean deli ham (about four slices) into strips and work them into the mix.
The ham really added that extra bit of flavor. So delicious!

Use a 1/2 cup to measure out each portion and mold them into burger patties. Cover them and let them sit in the fridge for about two hours.

Fry them over low heat on the stovetop until they're browned lightly on both sides, then put them onto a baking tray and put them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes at 350. Then top each burger with a slice of light provolone cheese.

Each patty with cheese is 6 WW+ points! Not bad vs beef cheeseburgers, right?!

We had them one night as burgers for dinner, and then had leftovers for lunch the next day. To save on points (and carbs!) I had my turkey burger without a bun. I topped my patty with spinach, tomato and a slice of light cheese. Yum!

Enjoy :)
