TEXAS TURKEY BURGERS

3/4 pound ground, white meat turkey

3 tablespoons low-sodium barbecue sauce

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Vegetable oil spray

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped (about 2 tablespoons)

3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise

2 whole wheat hamburger rolls

1 small tomato, sliced

Mix ground turkey with the barbecue sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. Form into 2 patties, about 4 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and coat with vegetable oil spray. Add the burgers and cook 3 minutes. Turn and cook 3 minutes. Turn heat down to medium and cover the skillet with a lid. Saute 2 to 3 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees.

While burgers cook, mix chopped jalapeno pepper and mayonnaise together.

When burgers are cooked, place each burger on the bottom half of a hamburger roll. Place several slices of tomato on each burger. Spread the mayonnaise on the top half of the roll and close.
