  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1/2 lb ground turkey breast
  • 1 tsp fennel seed, crushed
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup plain whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 large onion, halved, thinly sliced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 8 mini multigrain Kaiser rolls
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, optional


In a large bowl, combine beef, turkey, fennel, oregano, crushed red pepper, garlic powder, milk and bread crumbs. Mix well. Shape mixture into 8 patties, 1/2 inch thick.

Lightly coat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat until hot. Add onion, bell pepper and water; cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove vegetables from skillet and cover to keep warm.

Wipe skillet clean and spray again with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat until hot. Add patties and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until there is no pink in the center.
Serve patties topped with vegetables and BBQ sauce, if using, on Kaiser rolls.

Yield: 8 servings
