Turkey Burgers With Roasted Vegetables


Roasted vegetables:

  • ½ lb Brussels sprouts
  • 3 oz. cherry tomatoes
  • 3 oz. (1¼ cups) mushrooms
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary or dried thyme
  • ½ tbsp olive oil


  • 1 lb ground turkey or ground chicken
  • 1 tbsp mayo 
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter or olive oil

Herb butter:

  • 2 oz. butter, at room temperature
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped, fresh parsley
  • salt to taste

Roasted vegetables:

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Rinse and trim the vegetables and peel the outer layer of the Brussels sprouts if needed. Chop the vegetables, so they're roughly the same size.
  • Place them in a baking dish. Season with salt, pepper, rosemary, and/or thyme. Drizzle with olive oil and mix.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the vegetables have softened and turned a nice color.

Turkey burger:
Combine the ground turkey with mayonnaise, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper

  • Divide the meat mixture into balls — roughly 4 oz (110 g) each. Flatten and shape them into burgers with wet hands. The thinner they are, the faster they will cook.
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the butter.
  • When the pan is hot, place the burgers in the pan.
  • Fry for about 5 minutes on each side until cooked through, and have a nice brown crust. There are two burgers per serving.

Garlic butter:
In a small bowl, mix together the butter, garlic powder, parsley, and salt. Set aside to let the flavors develop before serving. If you're preparing it ahead of time, store it in the refrigerator.


When the chicken is almost cooked, add some heavy cream and more seasoning to the skillet to make a quick and delicious sauce.
