Grilled Cherry Tomato Turkey Burgers

For a healthy alternative to beef burgers, turn to ground turkey. A touch of Dijon helps keep the burgers moist, while a little basil goes a long way to add fresh flavor. Pair the burgers with juicy grilled tomatoes for a fresh and healthy summer meal.

  • Turkey Burger with Peaches and Blueberries

  • 4

    small peaches

  • 1

    pound ground turkey

  • Salt

  • Ground black pepper

  • 4

    slices Monterey Jack cheese

  • ½

    cup blueberries

  • ¼

    teaspoon chili powder

  • 4

    thick slices roasted garlic country bread or garlic bread, toasted if desired

  • Fresh mint (optional)


Finely chop one of the peaches; add ground turkey, salt, and pepper. Shape turkey mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties (if necessary, dampen hands first). Grill on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until no pink remains (165 degrees F). Add cheese; cover and cook 1 minute more. Meanwhile, coarsely chop remaining peaches. In a large skillet combine peaches, blueberries, and chili powder. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until heated through and juices are beginning to form. Top each piece of garlic bread with one turkey burger and some of the peach mixture. If desired, top with mint and additional chili powder.
