Before Oprah had anything to say about the subject, turkey burgers elicited as much excitement from carnivores as a Richard Simmons workout.

Even more delectable and flexible than its beefy cousin, the turkey burger once again proves what we knew all along – Oprah’s always right.


Mango Turkey Burgers

1/4 cup mango chutney, pureed smooth
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup finely diced celery
1/4 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 lb ground turkey breast
1 tbsp olive oil

Mango Mayonnaise

1/2 cup diced mango
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp sugar

4 hamburger buns


1) For the burgers, in a large bowl, whisk chutney, sour cream, celery, panko, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and salt. Add ground turkey, mix well and shape into 4 patties. Place on a plate, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up slightly before cooking.

2) Preheat barbeque to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grill. Brush the burgers with 1 tbsp olive oil, place on grill and cook 8-9 minutes per side, until meat is thoroughly cooked through. The internal temperature of the turkey burger should be between 160°F-165°F.

3) For the mango mayonnaise topping, place mango, mayonnaise, lime juice and sugar in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Place turkey burger on a hamburger bun and top with mango mayonnaise.
