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 lb ground organic free-range turkey (if you can find it)
-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 red onion)
-3 tablespoons oil (I used grapeseed)
-2 tablespoons gluten free Worcestershire sauce or Coconut Aminos (omit both if SCD, and add extra 1/4 teaspoon salt)
-1 teaspoon garlic granules (or 1 clove garlic, minced)
-1/4 teaspoon salt 
-A few grinds of fresh pepper 

How To
Preheat oven to 375 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,


    • 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!

  4. 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!

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