Turkey Burger with Yogurt Sauce


I was looking for a new good turkey burger because most of the time turkey burgers are pretty boring.  I had heard about Oprah’s favorite turkey burger and started searching for it on the Internet.  I found the recipe here on and decided to try it out.  This burger is supposedly served at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach.  As usually I did changes to the recipe, I didn’t want apples in my burger and I wanted a yogurt sauce to the burger. It was delishhh!  These were probably the best turkey burgers I have every had.  Turkey burgers are no longer boring to me.  Try them out!

Turkey Burgers

Serves: 6-8

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Bake Time: 5 minutes

1 ¼ lbs ground turkey
1/4 cup of finely chopped onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 finely chopped celery stalk
1 finely chopped carrot
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 egg
1 tsp dijon mustar
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp Worchester sauce
1 tbsp of bread crumbs
1 tbsp of Major Grey’s Chutney


Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Shape into the size of burger you wish, I like my a little smaller and made 8 burgers. BBQ them on the grill, or fry them on a frying pan with a little of vegetable oil.  About 2 minutes on each side, but that depends how thick you made them

Serve with hamburger roll and yogurt sauce.  Enjoy!

Yogurt Sauce

Serves: 6-8

Prep Time: 10 minutes

½ cup of plain yogurt, preferable Greek style yogurt
1 tsp of dried dill
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp of olive oil
1tsp of lemon juice
White pepper

Mix all together and server with your favorite burger.

    Yogurt sauce is my new obsession. I used to be a ketchup fiend, but tzatziki and the like are so refreshing during summertime! This sounds like perfect barbecue food to me. 🙂

      Maddie – Mee too. This is my favorite yogurt sauce and then the Tzatziki. The tzatziki sometime is overpowering vs. this sauce just goes with everything. I put it on burgers, and also use it as dressing or dipping sauce etc. Also feels so much healthier than regular dressing.
