In this healthy turkey burger recipe, lean ground turkey stands in for ground beef, and mushrooms are added to produce a thick and uncommonly juicy, flavorful turkey burger. An easy, lightened mayo sauce provides the perfect accent.

"This is a great recipe. It's moist and very tasty! I made it once and found myself craving it again. 2 thumbs for this guy! Our family enjoys this alternative to beef! Thanks Nelson from Lancaster, California "

Better-than-Beef Burger!!!

Only thing I did differently was add one red bell pepper, so delicious! Not a turkey burger fan and I thought these were better than beef burgers. Made on charcoal Weber grill, 5 minutes first side, 3 minutes second, perfection, a must try, healthy alternative.

Moist, flavorful, holds together well.
Amazing recipe!!

Everything about this recipe was amazing! Didn't have dill, so I used scallions instead. I also substituted the sour cream with Greek yogurt and it worked out well!! I will definitely make this again!

Winning recipe for a flavourful burger

These burgers are wonderful...I couldn't eat just one! It being the dead of winter here, I decided to pan fry the patties instead of grilling them; they were great. I tried the Lemon Scallion mayonnaise and was impressed by how well it worked with the burgers. I added only lettuce and tomato, and had what tasted like gourmet fare. Once summer comes and I am ready to throw the cover off the barbecue, I will try this recipe again.

Mushrooms add both flavour and moisture

Although time consuming, these burgers are great - full of flavour, definitely will make them again.


We didn't have fresh dill so I used 1 tablespoon of dried, and we used a whole grain hotdog bun to create the bread crumbs because I had one that needed to be used. We left out the mustard by accident, and I broiled them in the oven... but in the end it all turned out awesome!
