“Carrots and green onions make these low-fat burgers juicy. Grill them to serve at your next cookout.”


    • 2 tablespoons milk
    • ½ cup finely shredded carrot
    • ¼ cup finely sliced green onion
    • ¼ cup soft whole wheat bread crumbs
    • ¼ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
    • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
    • Dash pepper
    • ¾ pound lean ground turkey or chicken
    • ¼ cup Dijon-style mustard
    • ½ teaspoon curry powder
    • 4 whole wheat or white hamburger buns, split and toasted
    • Lettuce leaves (optional)
    • Shredded or thinly sliced zucchini (optional)
    • Sliced tomato (optional)


  • 1 Stir together milk, carrot, green onion, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Add ground turkey; mix well. Shape the mixture into four ½-inch-thick patties. Lightly grease the grill rack.
  • 2 For a charcoal grill, place patties on the greased grill rack directly over medium-hot coals. Grill, uncovered, about 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of a patty registers 165°F, turning once.
  • 3 For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-hot. Place patties on grill rack; cover and grill patties as directed in step 2.
  • 4 Meanwhile, stir together mustard and curry powder.
  • 5 Serve patties on buns topped, if desired, with lettuce leaves, zucchini, sliced tomato, and curry mustard mixture.
