I go out to eat a lot, and I mean a LOT, and even though the restaurants I frequent serve fresh and usually healthy food, I do have to watch what I eat and cook. I love a good turkey burger, but sometimes they come out a little dry and boring. Below you find a recipe for a healthy, yummy, juicy turkey burger that you will keep on your go-to-list!


What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 8 oz portobello mushrooms
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 8 oz Manchego cheese (cheddar if you can’t find it)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tbsp cream cheese
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 whole wheat burger buns


Place the mushrooms and red onion in a food processor or blender and chop finely. Combine mixture with the ground turkey, Worcestershire sauce, 1. tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp salt and a pinch of black pepper. Make four patties out of the mixture  and pan fry for about 5 minutes on each side over medium heat.

Cut the cheese into small pieces and chop it in the food processor or blender with the cream cheese and mustard. Peel and slice the avocado. Toast the burger buns and assemble the burger. To add the cheese on top of the turkey patty, microwave the cheese mix on 50% power for 1 minute to make it gooey (or however you want to heat it). Top off with the avocado and enjoy!

Bon Appétit!
