Leaner Tip: Substitute 1 flour bun with white mushroom caps to reduce recipe by ~130 calories per 1.5 oz.

Ingredients

  • 12 small white mushrooms about 2″ in width (~2.5 cups)
  • 2 small vine ripe tomato (~1/4 cup)
  • 4 strips of turkey bacon
  • 3 tsp of barbecue sauce

Directions

  • To make the buns, preheat the oven to 390F(200C). Line baking pan with parchment paper. Wash the mushrooms, remove the stems, and place on the baking sheet with the mushroom gills facing upwards. Bake for 10 min with tin foil on top of the mushrooms sealed on three out of the four sides to let out some moisture; the tin foil will help keep the mushroom “buns” moist and juicy!
  • To cook the turkey bacon, please place the turkey bacon on a non-stick pan on medium heat. You should cook each side for about 3-4 min on each side until it turns slightly brown and toasty. Remove the strips and place on a paper towel while it cools down.
  • To make the patty, use ground turkey and form 6 small patties about 2″ wide. Cook the patties on medium heat on a non-stick pan. . You should cook each side for about 5-7 min on each side until thoroughly cooked. Set aside.
  • Slice tomatoes into 12 pieces.
  • Stack all ingredients together starting with the mushroom, then turkey patty, BBQ sauce, tomato slices and then mushroom.
