Rosemary Turkey Burgers

I am a sucker for a good juicy burger, there is nothing better at a BBQ in my opinion. Recently I had some creative juices flowing and was dying to try a creation I came up with that was inspired by the rosemary I’ve been growing… and oh my goodness, this combination that I came up with was a success and such a hit! And now my mouth is watering just thinking of it…

Your guests at your BBQ will get a kick out of this unique and flavorful burger!

This is a healthy and very tasty choice for your BBQ. Remember to eat in moderation of course!

My personal favorite toppings for this burger: a little greek yogurt aioli (see below), splash of ketchup, arugala, tomatoes, and avocado. Mmmm. So Tasty!

I played with some leftover nonfat greek yogurt to make a “healthier” version of an aioli sauce for a topping and to dip my sweet potato fries in!

Greek Yogurt Aioli:

1/2 cup nonfat greek yogurt

Juice of 1 lemon

2 to 3 cloves of minced garlic (I like a lot of garlic)

sea salt to taste

Mix all ingredients together well and voila!


1 lb ground extra lean organic ground turkey

1/2 cup nonfat greek yogurt

1/4 cup chopped fresh rosemary leaves

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1 4oz can of diced green chiles *La Victoria is Gluten Free

1 clove garlic minced (I added extra, but I think 1 clove is plenty)

1 tbsp. red pepper flakes

A dash of sea salt and ground pepper to taste


-Saute rosemary leaves, chopped onion, diced green chiles, minced garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper in a saute pan using extra virgin olive oil

-Once everything is sauteed together, combine in a bowl with ground turkey and greek yogurt. Use hands to mix ingredients together well.

-Form into burger patties and place on grill and grill until cooked through.

-Put your burger together using your favorite toppings and your favorite Gluten Free Bun or make it “protein style” wrapping your burger in lettuce
