Lean, Mean, Turkey Burger Machines

What's for Dinner? 5/18/2010

-Simple Turkey Burgers
-Sweet Potato Oven Fries

We really love turkey burgers in this household. Sometimes they get a bad rap as being flavorless and dry, but ours are definitely not! Plus, they are WAY healthier than beef burgers. {We use 99% fat free ground turkey.}

Tonight's dinner was positively scrumptious, and made even better by the fact that Alex did all the cooking AGAIN! Score!

To make the Simple Turkey Burgers we just formed the patties {with no seasoning} and then sprinkled both sides of the patties with garlic salt and black pepper. Then we grilled them on the charcoal grill for about 5 minutes on each side. Melt provolone cheese on top once cooked through.

To make the Sweet Potato Oven Fries we sliced up a sweet potato and then tossed them in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and some Lawry's Seasoning Salt. Place the potato slices on a rack placed on top of a baking sheet. Then bake in a 425 degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.


  1. Sweet potato fries are seriously one of my favorite foods ever. Yours look delicious!

  2. I LOVE turkey burgers, I put sundried tomatoes in mine....so delicious!

  3. Hmmmmm turkey burgers - love them!

    We're having bison burgers for dinner tonight. They're also quite lean!

  4. tell me more about these delicious looking burgers! did you just get ground turkey and form it into a hamburger patty? I don't eat ground meat often so I'm not too familiar with ground turkey. I might have to put them on the list for next week :)

  5. Yep, that's all there is to it Mrs. G! After forming into patties we sprinkled with the seasonings mentioned. Good luck if you try it!!
