"A juicy turkey burger with a hint of red bell peppers, garlic and onions, topped with with fresh spinach, ripe red tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts and drizzled with a special avocado-artichoke dressing. Served on two slices of toasted sourdough bread, it's a burger any Californian could groove on. And that ain't no jive!"

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make dressing: combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth, but not too smooth (a few chunks are nice).
  2. Make burgers: Combine all ingredients and form 4-8 patties (depending on what size you want).
  3. Grill patties on outdoor grill, or pan-fry them if you don't have a grill.
  4. Serve on toasted sourdough bread with liberal helpings of avocado/artichoke dressing. Serve with baby spinach, sliced red onion and/or tomato, and alfalfa sprouts.

Looks yummy! I will make this week! Does the calorie count exclude the bread? thanks!

I'm not terribly fond of avacado so I didn't expect to like this as much as I did, but it was love at first bite! The turkey burger was moist and I loved the loads of garlic. I found myself piling on more dressing, it was so good! And the sourdough bread was a terrific choice. I totally forgot to write down the condiments on my grocery list so I just added some green leaf lettuce to the burger. Bravo for a great recipe! Made for ZWT3.

Really flavoful. I prefer ground turkey breast anyway, so tend to sub it in place of beef when possible for a healthy alternative. That is the first part that drew me to this burger. I love the use of artichokes, red peppers and onions, sprouts and the cheeses too ( I used slightly more and a blend of both cheeses for the flavor). I agree with previous reviewers that the dressing makes a nice dip - especially with a corn chip. Nicely done JJ Rollers! ZWT3.
