Grilled Pineapple Turkey Burgers
Serves: 4
  • 20-oz package extra lean ground turkey breast (if your ground turkey doesn’t specify that it’s the breast than count on it being as high in fat as beef)
  • 2 TB low sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme seasoning
  • 4 pineapple slices, approx ½ inch thick
  • ½ cup shredded carrot (we love red carrots for their vibrant color, as photographed here)
  • ½ cup shredded beets
  1. Preheat the grill to medium.
  2. In a large bowl, combine turkey, soy sauce, bell pepper, black pepper, and thyme. Mix well until thoroughly combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together carrots and beets.
  4. Evenly distribute turkey mixture into 4 equal portions and form into patties.
  5. Place patties and the pineapple slices on the grill.
  6. After about 8 minutes, flip the burgers and the pineapple slices (the grill side of the turkey should be brown).
  7. After another 3-4 minutes, remove pineapple slices and place one slice on top of each burger.
  8. Keep on the grill for another 4-5 minutes and remove from grill. (Be sure meat is thoroughly cooked and not pink).
  9. Place the burgers on a plate on top of a whole wheat bun.
  10. Top with carrot/ beet mixture, evenly dividing between the burgers.
  11. Serve with a salad or a side of steamed veggies. Enjoy!
  12. Enjoy!
