Mushroom, Garlic, and Swiss Turkey Burgers


  • 1 lb of lean ground turkey meat
  • 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Ground black pepper
  • Sprinkle of paprika
Mushroom, Garlic Topping:
  • 8 oz. of white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • Ground black pepper
  • Whole wheat hamburger buns
  • Reduced-fat swiss cheese, slices
  • Dijon mustard

1. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground turkey, worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, pepper, and parika. Mix ingredients together with your hands until well incorporated. Assemble into 6 burger patties (you can do 4 if you like your burger larger).

2. Spray a large grill pan with cooking spray so the burgers don't stick. Add the burger patties to the pan and cook on medium heat until completely cooked through (should no longer be pink in the middle-this can take up to 20 minutes).

3. While the burgers are cooking, add the olive oil and sliced mushrooms to a medium saute pan and saute on medium-high heat until the mushrooms start to sweat (about 5-8 minutes).

4. Next, turn the heat down to medium and add the minced garlic (stir continuely so the garlic does not burn) and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Season the mixture with black pepper. Turn the heat off and cover so it stays warm until your burgers are finished cooking.

5. Add a slice of swiss cheese to one side of each hamburger bun and toast until lightly brown and the cheese is melted.

6. To assemble, add dijon mustard to the side of the bun without the cheese and add a spoon full of the mushroom/garlic mixture on top of the melted cheese. Place a burger patty in the middle and smoosh together. Enjoy!!
