Day 47 – BBQ Romano Turkey Burgers

These burgers were INCREDIBLE, and they’re very simple to make. We bought some ground turkey after recently discovering that ground beef has an enormous amount of calories per serving. Also, we started buying small bricks of Romano cheese instead of the usual giant brick of extra sharp cheddar that we would usually get. The reason for this being that we could easily share half a brick of cheddar (like 10 servings at 160 each), or we could eat the more pungent Romano cheese at only 100 calories per serving. 

The ground turkey and the Romano cheese seemed like a natural fit – not having cheddar on stock any more. The trick is to grate the Romano cheese into the ground turkey with salt and pepper before forming the burgers. As you’re grilling the burgers, you’ll notice that the ground turkey will almost cook up like ground beef with the extra help from the Romano cheese. We only used a quarter serving of Romano per burger, so it only added 25 calories per burger. It also helped that we used thin buns that were only 100 calories each.
