Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high.

  • Cut baguette into 4 equal lengths. Split each piece horizontally and pull out about half of the soft bread from each side.

  • Finely chop enough onion rounds to equal 1/3 cup. Combine the chopped onion with turkey, 1 tablespoon chutney and salt in a medium bowl; gently mix with your hands until well combined. Form into 4 burgers, about 1/2 inch thick and oval-shaped to match the shape of the bread.

  • Oil the grill rack (see Tips). Grill the remaining onion rounds until softened and blackened in spots, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Grill the burgers until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 165 degrees F, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Grill the bread, cut-side down, until just beginning to char on the edges, about 2 minutes.

  • To assemble sandwiches, spread the remaining mango chutney on the bottom pieces of baguette. Top with a turkey burger, grilled onion and lettuce. Cover with the remaining bread.


Tips: Look for prepared mango chutney--a sweet, tangy and spicy condiment--near other Indian ingredients in the international aisle at most supermarkets.

To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

Quick Memorable now on the go-to list I had all the ingredients on hand and had thumbed down the page in the Fresh and Simple insert that came with my recent issue of Eating Well. I was beat and while I normally do most of the cooking my wife made this recipe. She followed it exactly and the sandwiches drew ooos and ahhs at the first bite from both of us. This is a keeper. Pros: Everything about this recipe rocks. So easy to make it should be illegal Cons: None Read More

These burgers were great -- easy to make and very family friendly. They stayed very moist after cooking. I featured this recipe on my own blog. Here's the URL to the entry: Read More

Moist and tasty This is a great burger. I took a hint from another EatingWell turkey burger recipe and added a bit of cooked couscous to lighten them up (cranberry and herb turkey burgers). We spread a bit of dijon mustard on the roll which really brought out the sweet mango chutney in the burger. Came off the grill moist and the burgers got a nice lacquered look to them--not easy to do with turkey. Pros: super easy Read More

I couldn't find mango chutney so the only other thing I thought to use was mango salsa so they had a kick to them. Mine didn't come out moist so maybe I overcooked them? They were a little bit dry. I am sure the chutney must make them sweeter.... Read More

Amazing! This was such a super delicious burger! The mango chutney transforms the flavors here into complete awesomeness. I used whole wheat burger buns and added an extra - tsp salt. I used a griddle instead and caramelized my red onions into sweet goodness. The flavors here blended so beautifully for a savory result. Everyone went back for seconds! This was a simple recipe with such a flavorful result. Read More

Fresh and delicious Not as heavy as a beef burger but just as tasty. It had a fresh sweet taste with the mango chutney. The crispness of the baguette and taste of mango really make this recipe. Will be making again but doubling the recipe so my family of 3 can have at least 2 each. Pros: quick easy tasty Read More

Delicious! These were sooooo good! We made them into wraps because we had whole wheat tortillas on hand. Also added a dollop of yogurt to each wrap to round everything out. It was so delicious my hubby and I fought over who gets to take the leftovers to work the next day: ) Pros: easy Cons: nothing! Read More
