Quick & Easy Turkey Burgers


My schedule during the week usually calls for quick & easy dinner recipes. As much as I love cooking, fast meals are my go to during the week because I teach classes on most nights.

I don’t like recipes that are too heavy before a workout so a turkey burger and some veggies does the trick!

Give this Turkey Burger recipe a try! It doesn’t take long, it is light, and has great flavor!

Turkey Burgers with Peppers & Mushrooms



1lb Ground turkey

½ cup red pepper, diced

½ container sliced mushrooms, diced

salt & pepper

2 teaspoons olive oil

whole wheat buns

sliced tomatoes and lettuce


Heat a small skillet to medium heat, Saute peppers and mushrooms in olive oil for 5 minutes or until soft.


Mix ground turkey with veggies and sprinkle in some salt & pepper. Make 5 patties with the meat mixture.


You can either grill them or bake them in the oven. I baked them because it was freezing outside. Bake 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until cooked through.


Build your burger…  Serve on whole wheat buns with lettuce & tomato, avocado and your favorite condiment!
