Finally...Italian Style Turkey Burgers

This is one of my all-time favorite Body for Life recipes! It only serves four, so you probably want to double it.

1 lb. lean ground turkey breast
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup reduced fat Parmesan Cheese, grated, divided
1 TBSP Italian Seasoning
2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
4 portabella mushrooms
2 tsp. olive oil
4 slices Italian Bread
2 cups marinara sauce
4 slices reduced fat Provolone Cheese

Preheat broiler and grill. Combine ground turkey, tomato sauce, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and Dijon mustard. Form mixture into 4 patties. Place patties on hot grill and cook for about 6 minutes. Turn and cook until no longer pink in the center, about 6 more minutes. Clean mushrooms. Remove and discard stems. Brush caps with olive oil. Place on hot grill and cook for 2 minutes on each side.

Place Italian bread slices on cookie sheet and place under broiler until lightly toasted. Top each toasted bread slice with a cooked turkey burger, a portabella mushroom, 1/2 cup marinara sauce and a slice of Provolone. Place under broiler until cheese melts and sauce is warmed through. Top each with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

Mamma mia!!
