Sour Cream and Onion Turkey Burgers

Portions:
4

Serving Size:
1 burger

    Diet Types:
  • CKD non-dialysis
  • Diabetes
  • Dialysis

Ingredients

  • 1/4 medium onion
  • 2 tablespoons chives
  • 1 pound ground turkey 7% fat
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 4 cracked wheat hamburger buns

Preparation

  1. Dice the onion and chives.
  2. Combine the onion, turkey, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and pepper. Mix well and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Form turkey mixture into 4 patties and refrigerate until ready to cook.
  4. Grill the turkey patties over medium heat, until well cooked, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Burgers are done when a meat thermometer registers 165˚ F.
  5. Place each burger on the bottom part of the bun, top with 1 tablespoon sour cream and 1/2 tablespoon chives. Place the other half of bun on top and serve. 

Helpful hints

  • Top burgers with grilled onions for more onion flavor.
  • Look for hamburger buns that do not have phosphorus additives.
  • Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to ground turkey mixture to make burgers juicier if fat content is not a concern.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet make 8 patties instead of 4. Wrap and freeze extra burgers for a quick meal later. Protein is reduced to 18 grams per serving with the bun.
