  • 6 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread, 2 slices torn into small pieces
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey (7% fat)
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons prepared mango chutney, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • Coarse salt
  • Mesclun lettuce mix
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced


  1. Preheat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. In a medium bowl, mix together bread pieces, turkey, sour cream, 3 tablespoons chutney, 1 tablespoon mustard, chili powder, and 1 teaspoon coarse salt.

  2. Shape mixture into four 5-inch round patties. Broil on a rimmed baking sheet until firm and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

  3. Meanwhile, lightly toast remaining 4 slices bread; transfer to serving plates. Top each slice with lettuce, burger, and tomato. Stir together remaining tablespoon chutney and mustard; serve alongside burgers.

Cook's Notes

For single servings: Delicious right away, ideal to freeze. Wrap uncooked patties individually, and defrost just the number of burgers you need.
