No need to add a lot of fat to your turkey burgers to keep them moist!  I have found the perfect way to not only make them fast and easy, but these are also healthy and delicious!  Easy enough for a weeknight meal, and a perfect reason to skip the drive thru and eat at home!


The secret to these burgers not drying out?  The Greek yogurt.  

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup Cabot lowfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • hot habanero, jalapeño cheddar or pepper jack cheese, sliced (use your favorite kind of cheese!)
  • hamburger buns
  • avocado
  • sliced tomato
  • baby spinach
  • cooking spray

Heat a skillet medium-high to high heat.  Mix ground turkey, Greek yogurt, worcestershire sauce, cayenne and shallot together.  Form your burgers into 4 larger sized burgers, or about 8 small burgers; then spray skillet with cooking spray (or use 1 Tablespoon olive oil).  Add burgers to pan and cook for about 5 minutes, then flip burgers.  Cook for another 4 minutes, then add cheese slices to the top of burger.  Add a lid to the pan and allow the cheese to melt; about 1 minute.  Spread Greek yogurt on buns, add baby spinach, sliced avocado and tomato, burger and enjoy!
