Beth’s version of Terrific Teriyaki Turkey Burgers

It seems today has been the day for cooking! This morning we had Apple Pie Pancakes. This afternoon's selection for dinner was one RJ had found in a Taste Of Home magazine. So Beth took the recipe (along with her helper Chi Chi) , and changed a lot of the ingredients to make it a little more weight WLS friendly. Without further ado, Beth's version of Terrific Teriyaki Turkey Burgers

¼ C of low sugar ketchup
2 T reduced sodium soy sauce
1 T Splenda Brown sugar
1 T Splenda Sweetened crushed Pineapple (Libby's Pineapple Rings)
1 ½ t ground ginger
1 t minced garlic
1 t sesame seeds

1 egg
1/3 C dry bread crumbs
3 T dry minced onion
2 T Splenda sweetened crushed pineapple
1 lb ground Turkey

For crushed pineapple, take 2 slices of pineapple and crush in chopper

1) In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the sauce. Set aside
2) In a large bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs, 3 T of sauce, dry onions and pineapple and ground turkey. Mix well. Shape into ½ C patties. (Mine made 6)
3) Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Grill burgers, covered over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat thermometer reads 165 and juices run clear. Brush burgers occasionally with reserved sauce.
4) Grill remaining pineapple slices for 2-3 minutes on each side or until heated through.
