Surf & Turf Burger

I had a Surf & Turf burger at Applebee's and it was all I could think about for weeks! So, so rich and delicious! I figured I could make something that could cure the craving but me much healthier. This is what I came up with!

Healthified Surf & Turf Burger


* 12oz lean ground turkey
* 1 egg white
* 1 cup Oats
* 3 tbsp (63g) A1 Steak Sauce
* 2 tbsp yellow mustard
* 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
* Garlic & Onion Power, Salt and Pepper to taste.

Combine all ingredients and form into 5 patties about 4 ounces each. The mixture will be moist.

Cook on a preheated grill on medium-high for about 5 minutes a side.

Shrimp Topping (enough for 2-3 Burgers)

*1 cup chopped shrimp uncooked
*1/4 of a small onion finely chopped
*1 wedge of Laughing Cow Light Original Cheese
*1 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
*1 Tbsp Brummel and Brown Butter
*2 Tbsp Skim Milk
*1 tsp each of Salt, Black Pepper, Italian Seasning and Garlic (to taste more or less)

Saute onion on a small skillet, once translucent add shrimp and cook until pink, set aside.

In a small sauce pan melt the butter and then add Parmesan & Laughing Cow Cheese, then the milk and then seasoning. Keep stirring until mixture melts completely, remove from heat and add shrimp and onion mixture and stir until coated. Remove from pot immediately.

Place burger on bottom side of whole wheat bun, top with 1/3-1/2 of shrimp topping and bun.
