Turkey Burgers

For juicy burgers, use ground turkey that's at least 7 percent fat. Sour cream, mango chutney, and mustard will give them additional flavor and moisture.

Turkey Burgers

Source: Everyday Food, January/February 2006

Ingredients

  • 6 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey (7 percent fat)
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons prepared mango chutney, preferably Major Grey's, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 cup mesclun lettuce mix
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, tear 2 slices bread into small pieces. Add turkey, sour cream, 3 tablespoons chutney, 1 tablespoon mustard, chili powder, and 1 teaspoon coarse salt. Shape into 4 firmly packed 5-inch round patties.

  2. Freeze on a baking sheet until firm, about 30 minutes, then wrap each burger in plastic; place all burgers in a resealable freezer bag, label, and date. Freeze up to 2 months.

  3. To cook: Thaw burgers overnight in the refrigerator. Heat broiler with rack set 4 inches from heat. Place burgers on a rimmed baking sheet; broil until firm and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

  4. Lightly toast 4 slices bread. Dividing evenly, top each with lettuce, burger, and tomato. Stir together 1 tablespoon each chutney and mustard, and serve alongside burgers.

Cook's Note

When burgers are wrapped separately, you can defrost as few or as many as you need.

    absolutely awesome! super tasty and a great way to serve a burger with a slice of toast instead of always a big ole' bun! yummy!

    HEY THANKS FOR THE TIP, WITHOUT THE BREAD SOUNDS GOOD, AS NO BREAD IS ON MY DIET. BESIDES MY HUSBAND LOVES TO GRILL. I WILL HAVE TO TRY AND FIND A RECIPE FOR THE MANGO CHUTNEY, AS IN OUR SMALL TOWN THEY ACT LIKE THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IT, AND MOST LIKELY HAVEN'T

    These are easy to prepare and very tasty as well. I normally serve them without the bread and broil the burgers in summer when the grill is handy.
