Louisiana Cajun Turkey Burger

I don't eat much red meat and tofu only satisfies me when I need a light meal, so that limits my selection of protein somewhat. Turkey is a wonderful lean source of protein and it's a very versatile meat. Surprisingly, I have rarely found a good turkey burger, most are predictably dry and lacking flavor. This confounds me because with the meat being ground, it is so easy to season and mix with things to retain its moisture. This burger has a subtle punch, ok, more like a playful wake-up slap in the face. It's spicy, but not hot. Just warm enough to grab your attention.


  • 16oz Ground Turkey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Culinary Collection Louisiana Cajun Mix
  • 1 tablespoon Culinary Collection Dried Shallots
  • 3/4 tablespoon Culinary Collection Seasoning Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Low Fat Yogurt
  • Spray Olive Oil


  1. Combine the seasonings and yogurt in a medium-sized mixing bowl and then add turkey and mix well.
  2. Form into patties and spray one side with olive oil.
  3. Heat grill or saute pan until hot and place burgers on, oiled side down, sear well, flip and cook until done.
  4. Remove, let rest 3 minutes or so and serve with your favorite preparation. As a variation, try adding minced sun-dried tomatoes, minced apples, some Toasted Brown Rice (see above), minced red bell peppers, etc.
