It doesn’t always have to be a beef burger – this recipe for turkey burgers is a great alternative, tastes wonderful and it is a good idea to make the patties ahead of time and freeze them. And if you freeze them wrapped individually, you can defrost as many at a time as you need.

Healthy Turkey Burgers:


  • 6 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1 lb. of of lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup of reduced sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons of prepared mango chutney (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder
  • coarse salt
  • 1 cup of mesclun lettuce mix
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  1. In a medium bowl, tear 2 slices of bread into small pieces
  2. Add turkey meat, sour cream, 3 tablespoons of chutney, 1 tablespoon of mustard, chili powder and 1 teaspoon of coarse salt
  3. Mix and shape into 4 patties – about 5 inches round
  4. At this point you can prepare them for freezing: freeze them on a baking sheet until firm – about 30 minutes. Then wrap each one individually in plastic wrap, place them into a resealable freezer bag, label them and you can freeze them for up to 2 months.
  5. To cook your burgers: Thaw them overnight in the refrigerator
  6. Heat broiler with rack set 4 inches from heat
  7. Place burgers on a rimmed baking sheet and broil until firm and cooked through – 4-5 minutes per side
  8. Lightly toast 4 slices of bread
  9. Dividing evenly, top each with lettuce, burger and tomato
  10. Stir together 1 tablespoon of chutney and 1 tablespoon of mustanrd and serve alongside burger so that each person can use as much as they wish.
