Turkey Burgers with Sweet Potatoes

My Mom hates to cook. I'm not sure why, she's actually very good at it. This is one thing I remember her making quite often, it's a great stand-by for my family now too. There are never any leftovers!


Using only ground turkey and Italian dressing, you will have a tasty, savory burger with no bun needed! Paired with easy and delicious steamed sweet potatoes, you'll have a healthy meal ready to enjoy.

Total Time: About 45 minutes, start to finish.

Yield: About 7 small burgers.

  1. Place your turkey in a large bowl

    Tip: If you purchase the frozen rolls of ground turkey and defrost beforehand, it is much more cost effective than purchasing in the trays from the fridge case.
  2. Add your dressing.
  3. Combine well with a potato masher.
  4. Using 1/3 cup measure, place your mounds on a medium heated surface, flatten slightly. I prefer an electric griddle.
  5. Cook on each side for about 5 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked thoroughly. Because of the dressing, these will crumble easily, be careful.
  6. Place a slice or 2 of cheddar cheese on top of your burgers and keep covered until ready to serve.
  7. For your potatoes, peel and quarter as many sweet potatoes as desired. Place in a large pot with a small amount of water and a steaming basket. This way you will preserve more vitamins. Steam for about 10-15 minutes, or until tender. Serve with butter or margarine and brown sugar.
