Spiced Turkey Burgers With Dill Sauce

Number of Servings: 4

Serving Size: 1 burger

Tasty and spicy, these burgers are an excellent exchange for the beef burger.

Name: Amount:
lb ground turkey breast 1.25
seasoned bread crumbs 0.25 cup
egg, beaten 1
minced parsley 0.25 cup
finely minced onion 0.25 cup
light soy sauce 2 tsp
Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp
ground cumin 0.50 tsp
paprika 0.50 tsp
Fresh-ground black pepper
olive oil 1 tsp
plain nonfat Greek-style yogurt 0.50 cup
finely minced dill 2 tsp
apple cider vinegar 1 tsp
grated lemon zest 0.50 tsp
Salt and pepper to taste
whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted (optional, not included in nutritional analysis) 4
Lettuce and tomato (optional, not included in nutritional analysis)

Combine all ingredients for the burgers and form into patties. Be sure to handle the meat lightly.


Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and then the turkey burgers. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes per side until the turkey is cooked through (an internal temperature reading should be 180°F). You may also cook these on an outdoor grill, coated with cooking spray. If grilling, cook on medium heat, grilling the patties for about 5 to 7 minutes per side.


Combine the ingredients for the yogurt sauce. Top the turkey burgers (with or without the buns) with the yogurt sauce. Serve with lettuce and tomato, if desired.
