Dill Turkey Burgers with Yogurt Sauce

If you love a quick and easy weeknight meal, give these turkey burgers a try!  I’ve always followed recipes for turkey burgers that included breadcrumbs and egg until I came across a recipe by @bobbyflay that did not include those two ingredients. So I thought if Bobby Flay made it, it must be great!  So I created these easy dill turkey burgers with yogurt sauce.  I love dill and have added it to the burgers and the yogurt sauce for a burst of flavor.   As a fun family dinner idea, declare “dress your burger” night and let your kids pick their favorite veggies to top their burger with!

Ingredients

1 pound ground turkey breast (or mix ½ pound ground turkey breast with ½ pound ground dark meat turkey)

2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped

2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped

1 ½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

6 whole grain burger rolls (or for a low carb option, wrap in romaine lettuce!)

Yogurt Sauce

1 cup Greek yogurt

2 teaspoons dill, finely chopped

2 tablespoons onion, minced

¼ cup tomato, chopped

¼ cup cucumber, chopped

2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

½ teaspoon ground cumin

salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber, dill, lemon juice, onion tomato, cumin, salt and pepper to taste.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients together and mix well. Form into 6 patties.
  4. Heat an oven-safe skillet over medium heat and coat with a dash of olive oil. Cook the patties until nicely browned, about 1-2 minutes, and flip. Continue cooking another minute until browned on both sides.
  5. Turn stove off and place skillet directly in oven. Bake for 10 minutes or until internal temperature is 165 degrees F.
