Turkey Parm Sandwiches
- 16 oz. ground turkey
- 1/2 cup marinara sauce, separated
- 3 tsp. freshly chopped basil, separated
- 3/4 cup flour
- salt and pepper
- 1 large egg, whisked
- 1 tsp. water
- 1 cup panko bread crumbs
- 2 thick slices mozzarella cheese
- 2 burger buns, halved & slightly toasted
- 2 lettuce leaves
Now you will make an assembly line for coating the burgers. Take 3 shallow bowls and in the 1st bowl, put the flour, the other 1 1/2 tsp. basil, salt and pepper. In the 2nd bowl, whisk together the egg and the water. In the 3rd bowl goes the bread crumbs.
Preheat a large skillet or grill pan to medium high- heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray or pour a little bit of olive oil.
Coat the burgers one patty at a time. First in the flour, then the egg, and then finally the bread crumbs. Once coated, place onto the hot skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes before flipping to the other side. Cook for another 3 minutes. In the last minute of cooking time, place a slice of the mozzarella cheese on top of the burgers and top with the remaining marinara sauce.
To serve, place lettuce on the bottom of the toasted bun. Top with the turkey parm patties and the bun top.
