Healthy Recipe: Italian Turkey Burgers–YUM!

///Healthy Recipe: Italian Turkey Burgers–YUM!

Ever since we began our health and wellness journey here at AFG, we like to try healthy recipes and share them with each other. One of my personal favorites, Italian Turkey Burgers, comes from Jamie Eason. Here’s a tip though: Pair this with a light side, like a salad, because they definitely fill you up!

  • Protein: 27.6 g


  • 2 packages of ground extra lean turkey breast
  • 4 medium zucchini, grate
[I used 2 medium zucchinis and felt it was plenty]
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Directions

    1. Set broiler on high, arranging rack so that burgers will be about 2 inches from the heat. [I used my George Foreman extra lean grilling machine!]
    2. In a large bowl combine grated zucchini, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, dried basil, oregano, pepper and then turkey.
    3. Mix well and scoop out 4-5 oz. portions. Mixture will be very moist. Use non-stick spray on the foil-lined baking sheet or grill.
    4. Place burgers in oven for 7 minutes. Carefully flip each burger and broil for another 7 minutes. The George Foreman Grill will cook much faster–so watch it!

    These are great as meatballs too! Try with spaghetti squash for a low carb meal.
