Southwest Turkey Patty Melt



1/2 pkg. taco seasoning
1/2 lb. lean ground turkey
Sliced pepper-jack cheese
Sliced tomato
Romaine lettuce, torn
Taco sauce
Bread (I used marble rye)

Heat a large flat skillet at medium heat. In a small bowl, combine the turkey and taco seasoning with hands until fully mixed together. Form into two patties. Spray the pan with non stick cooking spray and add the burgers. Cook for about three minutes on one side and flip, cooking the other side for at least 3 minutes, or until the center of the burger is no longer pink and cooked through. Add a slice of cheese to each burger, and place a lid on top to create steam to melt the cheese onto the patty.

To assemble, place the burger on top of the bottom piece of bread. Add the lettuce, cilantro and tomato. Spread a small amount of taco sauce, or hot sauce if you would prefer, on the other piece of bread. Place on top. Yum!

(Without the bread, the patty and toppings are 6 WW points per serving, which it makes 2 servings. Since I used homemade marble rye bread, each serving would be 10 WW points.)
