Teriyaki Burgers

This is a little out of my normal vein, but I just have to share. I'm getting so tired of cooking the same old thing. I have this list of meals that I keep rotating through...and I'M BORED! So, while planning this weeks' meals I had this flash of brilliance, if I may say so myself. All the sudden I thought, "teriyaki turkey burgers". And oh my, did they ever turn out beautifully. Moist and flavorful. Everything you could want in a healthy low fat meal. So, I thought I'd pass it along. I know that I'm not the only one who gets tired of cooking and eating the same old things.
So, all you need to do is mix about a 1/2 c. of Mr. Yoshida's Teriyaki Sauce, some minced garlic, garlic salt, pepper & of course your lean ground turkey. Make them into patties and grill 'em up. As a bonus, I had hubby throw some pineapple rings on the bbq and those went onto the burger as well. I also topped the burger with a slice of part skim mozzarella (Dylan used cheddar, both were yummy). For added healthy factor, I went with a "protein style", meaning I decided to forgo the bun and wrap the patty in lettuce (I was bad yesterday!!). It was one of the best meals we've done in a while. And the best part, I didn't feel guilty enjoying it. If you're interested in what else was the plate(I know I would be), we had homemade coleslaw-made with light mayo, and Ranch Beans. The coleslaw wasn't the healthiest choice in the world, but I limited my portion, and I knew how much mayo I used...and it wasn't much.
So, do you have an awesome healthy dinner idea to share? If you do, I'd love to hear about it. And, if I have any more flashed of brilliance, I'll share too. Here's to an great week!! (I have no idea how that one section got to be posted in black, and I can't fix it...sorry! LOL :P)
