BURGER FOR BREAKFAST
1 — medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 — medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 tbsp — extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp — Italian seasoning, divided
1/4 tsp — freshly ground pepper
10 ounces — 93%-lean ground turkey
2 — links sweet or hot turkey sausage, casings removed
1/4 cup — fine, dry breadcrumbs
1 tsp — fennel seeds
1/2 tsp — garlic powder
4 — slices provolone cheese
4 — small whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted
1 Place a grill basket on one side of grill. Preheat to medium-high.
2 Toss onion, bell pepper, oil, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and pepper
in a large bowl. Transfer to the preheated grill basket. Cook, stirring
a few times, until the vegetables are soft, 12 to 15 minutes.
3 Meanwhile, combine ground turkey, sausage, breadcrumbs,
fennel seeds, garlic powder and the remaining 1 teaspoon Italian
seasoning in a medium bowl. Shape into four 4-inch patties.
4 Oil the grill rack (see Tip), place the burgers on it and cook for
4 minutes. Turn them over, top with the grilled vegetables and
cheese; continue grilling until the burgers are cooked through
and the cheese is melted, 4 to 6 minutes more. Serve on buns.
