I adapted this recipe from another one I had. Our family loves them. The Basil sauce makes all the difference.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together ground turkey, chopped onion, garlic, soy sauce and egg. Mixture will be very wet. Plug in griddle and heat to 350, or you can fry them in a pan with a little cooking spray to keep from sticking.
  2. divide meat mixture into 6 portions and pat out to about 1/2 thickness. They will be about 4 to 6 inches round. They shrink up a lot so I pat them a little larger than the buns diameter. fry about 5 min and flip and fry on the other side about 5 minutes or until done.
  3. For sauce: mix together mayo, mustard, tabasco and about 1/2 to 1 cup chopped fresh basil. Place Burger on bun top with sauce, and add desired veggies. MMMM.

This is delicious. I normally dont like soy in things like burgers but the hint of it just set it off perfectly. The basil sauce is yum, i used low fat sour cream for it rather than mayo. Loved it.
