The avocado topping brings back much needed moisture to an often dry turkey burger. Feel free to add tomato and onion slices – they carry a minimum of calories. If you can’t get your hands on a nice ripe avocado, substitute Wholly Guacamole (a super fresh guac available in the refrigerator section of your market).

2 turkey burgers (Jennie-O)
2 100 calorie buns (Arnold Select Sandwich Thins – multi grain)
1/2 c worth of avocado slices (about 6 slices) – or use some Wholly Guacamole (available at most markets)
salt and pepper
Heat a pan on medium high. Remove from heat to spray with Pam. Heat frozen burgers according to package instructions (you can alternately grill or broil the burgers, but cook them slow so they do not dry out). When done, place on a bun and add 3 slices of avocado on the top.
This makes the job of making avocado slices a breeze – tools such as these make perfect slices all the time !
These are just AMAZING ! Serve as an appetizer, a lunch, even a dinner with a salad next to them. The sundried tomato flavor mixed with the flavor of the cheese and the mushrooms is just outstanding. The prep is quick and easy and these are just amazing !

Pulse tomatoes in a food processor or chop very finely and stir into ricotta. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spread the cheese mix on the rolls and add spinach leaves.

This is a great, hearty sandwich that fills you up and contains no high calorie meat. Sometimes when you get these in a restaurant, they have the same calorie content as having a burger (sometimes they are done in tons of oil or butter). But this version keeps the oil to a minimum and adds a nice amount of cheesy goodness to the sandwich.
