Directions

  • In a medium bowl stir together carrot, green onions, bread crumbs, milk, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper. Add ground turkey; mix well. Form the turkey mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.

  • Place patties on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 11 to 13 minutes or until patties are done (165 degrees Fahrenheit), (see Tip), turning once halfway through grilling time. To broil, place patties on the unheated greased rack of a foil-lined broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 11 to 13 minutes turning once halfway through broiling time.

  • Meanwhile, while burgers are cooking, in a small bowl stir together mustard and curry powder. Spread buns with mustard mixture. Top with burgers and, if desired, lettuce and tomato.

Tips

Tip: The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey or chicken patty cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
