Veggie and Sun Dried Tomato Turkey Burgers

Monday, for some reason, usually turns into a burger night for us.  It's a quick, easy meal that's perfect for the start of the week.  I make a variety of different veggie and meat based burgers and I just LOVE the addition of sun dried tomatoes.  Gives it just a little kick.  If you're looking to jazz up your burger night, give these a try.  

-1 1/2 pounds ground organic free-range turkey
-1 medium zucchini, peeled and grated 
-1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
-1/4 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes (I used marinated) 
-1/4 cup onion, diced (I used a shallot)
-3 tablespoons oil (I used organic olive oil)
-2 tablespoons gluten free Worcestershire sauce or Coconut Aminos (omit both if SCD, and add extra 1/4 teaspoon salt)
-2 teaspoon garlic granules (or 1 clove garlic, minced)
-1/4 teaspoon salt 
-A few grinds of fresh pepper 

How To
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1.  Add ingredients to a bowl and mix.
2.  Form into patties.
3.  Bake for 25 minutes (or until internal temp reaches 180 degrees).  
4.  Dress with favorite burger night fixins'.
Makes 6 medium patties or 4 large patties 

*Double the above recipe and freeze the remaining patties for another dinner.  Great for those late night sport or dance practices!

  1. This is now a favorite recipe of mine (on my to make recipe list) and I'm sure once I eat these burgers! I love all of the ingredients you used Amber. My daughter has been begging me to play soccer for months. I am finally going to sign her up. I hope Skylar has a great time playing.

    Take Care,


    1. Hi Laura. So fun, we have soccer girls! My daughter has been wanting to play for a while, but she has so many activities...finally worked out this year. She loves it. I hope you enjoy the burgers. The sun dried tomatoes really make it, but I've made them with just carrots and zucchini (and sometimes mushrooms). Fun to play around with ingredients. :-)

    A burger with all the veg right inside...I am sold!! My kind of burger. I've never really gotten the big hunk of meat allure for some people, but this I can wrap my brain around! Now for some nice weather to fire up the barbie! (well, we have fired it up, but we do it in the pouring denial I guess!

  • Hi There Tessa,

    Yes, I can't do a plain old "burger" either, I NEED some veggies in there. Ground turkey is nice, but I've also made these with ground chicken breast. Just a different way to have the chicken. :-)

    I think the rain clouds went in your direction. The last few weeks were wet here in Cali. So nice this week. Spring has sprung for sure!

  • These burgers look delicious! Love all of the vegetables mixed in with the ground turkey meat - yum!

    1. Thanks so much!!
