Tasty Turkey Burger Recipe

I found this recipe in a pile of Dave’s (my bf!) stuff and since we were entertaining on Saturday I thought I would make these tasty burgers for lunch! I’m pretty sure his mom is the one to thank for this recipe (Thanks Sandy!)

I am a HUGE fan of burgers (usually my cheat of choice) but these are a much healthier option but equally as delicious!  Pair your burger with a spinach salad and you’ve got yourself a complete meal!!


1 lb of ground lean ground turkey

1 small carrot, grated

4 green onions, chopped

1 sm clove of garlic, minced

1 egg, lightly beated

1/4 cup of fine dry bread crumbs (or you can use oatmeal!)

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp of ground coriander (I didn’t have any of this so I left it out)

1/2 tsp dry mustard

Pinch of sea salt/pepper

Pita bread or whole wheat buns (or no buns which is how I prefer them, try lettuce wraps!)

((For toppings you can cut up avocado, tomato, onion, lettuce or any other veggies…I also like to put mustard on mine!))

Combine all ingredients and shape into 4 patties.  Cook in a pan on both sides until cooked all the way through.  You can also make your patties smaller and make 8 burgers/sliders.


These take no time at all to make so if you’re looking for a quick, delicious and nutritious meal this is one you’ve got to try!
