Turkey Burgers With Salsa

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Knitting Granny

This is one of our family's favorites, and it's pretty healthy, too. I usually double the recipe because it reheats beautifully. I haven't tried to freeze the burgers, but I don't know why that wouldn't work.

I really liked these turkey burgers. They had a great flavor and the salsa was good too. At first I was nervous to put the salsa on the burgers, but it turned out great. Very quick to make and great for a healthy weeknight meal! Thanks Knitting Granny!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl and using your hands mix together the ground turkey, cornmeal, 1 can of the green chilis, lime juice, egg white (or egg), 2 teaspoons cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
  2. Form turkey mixture into 4 or 5 patties.
  3. Heat canola oil in a large fry pan, or if making a double recipe an electric griddle works great.
  4. Fry patties about 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in the middle. If making a double batch, as patties are cooked, keep warm in a 150 degree oven on a heat-proof plate.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, combine the crushed tomatoes, corn, 1 can chopped green chilis and 1 teaspoons cumin.
  6. Heat the "salsa" until bubbly and thoroughly hot.
  7. Serve patties with salsa spooned over the top.
