1.3 lbs. 93% lean ground turkey 

1/4 cup green bell pepper, minced 

1/4 cup red bell pepper, minced 

1 clove garlic, crushed 

1/2 tsp sweet paprika

Combine turkey, garlic and spices and mix well using your hands or a fork. 


Form into 5 patties and lay on parchment or wax paper while working. If you want to make these for another day, they can be refrigerated or frozen. 


Spray a non-stick skillet and set over medium-low heat. Once hot, brown turkey patties, in two batches, 3 minutes on each side. 


Once you have achieved a nice browned crust on each side, reduce heat to low and cover. Continue cooking until internal temperature reaches 165.
