Green Apple Turkey Burgers

Gobble Gobble

I am on a never ending high protein diet, so I’m constantly dreaming up new ways to do the same old protein laden dinners. I threw these turkey burgers together the other night and they were good enough to share… who says you can’t put fruit into your patty??


1 Package of Lean Ground Turkey (93/7)

1 Whole Tart Green Apple (finely chopped)

5 Sprigs of Fresh Parsley (finely chopped)

1 Tbls of Whole Grain Mustard

2 Tbls of Grated Parmesean Cheese

1 Green Onion (Chopped)

Salt and Pepper

Mix it Up


Combine all ingredients (season with salt and pepper… easy on the salt as the cheese is fairly salty already). Mix with a fork just until combined. Be VERY careful not to mix it too much or your meat will be tough and chewy. Cook on oiled grill over medium high heat until cooked through (flipping once).

I ate mine with a side of vegetables (no bread, boo!) but my dinner guest enjoyed it on a bun. It works great either way.

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”. I fell in love with the word and the idea that chic is the pursuit of something better, prettier, or cooler than you are today. Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
