Great Tasting Grilled Turkey Burgers

June 13, 2012 at 5:07 pm Leave a comment

Summer barbeques and picnics can offer a tempting range of choices that are high in calories and sugar.  Choose lean, grilled meats:  Skip the fried chicken and go for lean meats such as a grilled chicken breast or fish filet or try a turkey burger.


  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 ounces uncooked ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted


  1. In a medium bowl stir together carrot, green onions, bread crumbs, milk, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper. Add ground turkey; mix well. Form the turkey mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  2. Place patties on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 11 to 13 minutes or until patties are done (165 degrees F),* turning once halfway through grilling time.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together mustard and curry powder. Spread buns with mustard mixture. Top burgers with desired fresh vegetables.
