I really enjoy Udi's gluten free bread and have been eating it for awhile now, so when I was contacted by one of their company representatives to try out some samples of their hamburger and hot dog buns in a BBQ inspired recipe post I was BEYOND excited! Soon after I happily agreed a package arrived at my doorstep...
Not only did they send me the buns but I also got samples of bread, cookies, brownies, muffins, tortillas and pizza crust too! I immediately tried the SnickerDoodle cookies which were to die for and my daughter and I had one of their Double Vanilla muffins the next morning which was also delish and seriously like having a cupcake for breakfast.
I have had this recipe for Fiesta Turkey Burgers in my mind for while now and getting the hamburger buns was a perfect opportunity to try it out. Adding veggies, beans and spices to the turkey burgers was super tasty and also added a boost of vitamins and minerals plus fiber too!
I have to say that the hamburger buns worked perfectly as well. They hold their shape nicely, even when carrying the weight of a hefty turkey burger and all the fixin's. These buns are also crusty on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside and are delicious when toasted. I used the Whole Grain Hamburger Bun variety which is under 200 calories and has a whopping 6 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein as well. I can't wait to try some recipes with their hot dog buns, tortillas and pizza crust too. A big thanks to Udi's for providing me with the samples and hope you all try their products out along with this festive turkey burger recipe!
1 pound lean ground turkey
½ cup diced onion
½ cup diced red bell pepper
½ cup egg whites
½ cup cooked black beans (I used canned from Trader Joes, rinsed well)
½ cup cooked corn
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
1.5 tablespoons taco seasoning
½ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon salt (if taco seasoning does not contain salt)
6 hamburger buns, preferably whole grain (I used Udi's brand which is great for those on gluten free diets!)
Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Form 4 patties and place on a heated nonstick pan or grill. Heat 7-10 minutes on each side on high heat or until no longer pink on the inside. Lightly toast the
buns, add the patties, your favorite condiments/fixin's in and serve.
