Burgers are a backyard passion, but--dare we admit it?--sometimes the passion wears a little thin. But once the patties are spiked with curry powder and topped with a creamy chutney sauce, the old spark is back and everyone's happy at the table.

Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare sauce: Mix 2 tablespoons yogurt, mayonnaise, chutney and 1/2 teaspoon curry powder in a small bowl. Cover and chill.

  • To prepare burgers: Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat broiler.

  • Combine pork, turkey, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup yogurt, 2 tablespoons curry powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.

  • Grill or broil the patties until no longer pink inside and an instant-read thermometer reads at least 160 degrees F, about 5 minutes per side. Serve the burgers on buns, topped with the sauce and watercress.


Tip: To make fresh breadcrumbs: Trim crusts from firm sandwich bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor until a coarse crumb forms. One slice of bread makes about 1/3 cup crumbs.
