Turkey Burgers with Savory Warm Relish


  • Ground turkey (¼ pound patties, 93% lean) seasoned with a little salt & pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 3 cups red cabbage shredded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 4 large leafs of lettuce (romaine, red leaf, or green leaf)


Wash and dry the lettuce leaves.

In a large skillet sauté the onion, pepper, and red cabbage with the olive oil until soft.

Add the garlic salt and balsamic vinegar and allow to simmer until the vinegar and veggies are shiny and caramelized. Stir often. (Most of the liquid will have cooked off).

Keep this relish warm.

Grill or pan fry 4 quarter pound turkey burgers until just done. (Cooking them too long will make them dry) Usually 4 minutes on each side on a hot grill is sufficient, but a little longer if you are using the frozen type.

Now place a turkey burger on the stem end of the lettuce leaf, top with a generous portion of the warm relish.

Serve! Feeds 4 with other sides or 2 as a complete meal.
