Stuffed Turkey Burgers

Serve with Martha's All-American Potato Salad.

  • servings: 4




  • 10 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey (7 percent fat)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup prepared mango chutney, preferably Major Grey's, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 4 ounces Fontina or Monterey Jack cheese, quartered and cut into strips
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • 1 cup mixed greens
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced


  1. Step 1

    Cut 2 slices bread into very small pieces, and place in a medium bowl. Add turkey, sour cream, 3 tablespoons chutney, 1 tablespoon mustard, chile powder, and salt; mix to combine.

  2. Step 2

    Divide meat mixture into 8 equal-sized portions. Flatten one portion to a diameter of 3 1/2 inches. Place one quarter of the cheese in the center in a single layer. Top with another portion of meat and seal edges by pinching with fingers to enclose cheese. Repeat process with remaining ingredients. Place burgers on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap, and freeze for 30 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Heat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat. Brush both sides of each burger with oil. Reduce heat to medium, and grill burgers until firm and cooked through, flipping once, 7 to 8 minutes per side.

  4. Step 4

    Lightly toast remaining 8 slices of bread. Top each of 4 slices with 1/4 cup greens, followed by a burger and a tomato slice. Stir together remaining tablespoon each chutney and mustard. Spread chutney mixture evenly over remaining 4 toasted bread slices, and place on top to enclose. Serve immediately.

    These burgers are excellent!!! My picky eaters love them. I make this recipe over and over. They can be alitlle hard to handle because they are soft, but def. worth it. I also use apricot jelly in place of the mango chutney.
