Burgers made with ground turkey are a lean alternative to beef burgers, providing you choose turkey ground from the breast. Regular ground turkey, which is a mixture of light and dark meat and some skin, contains almost as much fat as lean ground beef. A honey-mustard mixture keeps these low-fat patties moist and succulent.

1/4 cup coarse-grained mustard
2 tablespoon honey
1 pound ground turkey breast
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons canola oil
4 whole-wheat hamburger rolls, split and toasted
Lettuce, tomato slices and red onion slices, for garnish

Step 1
Prepare a grill.

Step 2
Whisk mustard and honey in a small bowl until smooth.

Step 3
Combine turkey, 3 tablespoons of the mustard mixture, salt and pepper in a bowl; mix well. Form into four 1-inch-thick burgers.

Step 4
Lightly brush the burgers on both sides with oil. Grill until no pink remains in center, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Brush the burgers with the remaining mustard mixture. Serve on rolls with lettuce, tomato and onion slices.
