Bacon-Wrapped Turkey Burgers

Mark Ferri

Servings: four.

Since ground turkey breast is super-lean, it partners well with fattier foods. Smoky bacon adds incredible flavor, as does the creamy blue cheese sauce. Since the flavors are so intense, I like to serve these burgers on whole wheat or whole grain buns. You can also add your favorite toppings, such as fried onions, lettuce, and sliced tomatoes.

This recipe is excerpted from Quick Fix Meals.


  • Cooking spray
  • 1-1/4 lb. ground turkey breast
  • 1-1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 8 slices regular bacon or turkey bacon
  • 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 4 hamburger buns, preferably whole wheat


  • Coat a stove-top griddle or large skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat.In a large bowl, combine the turkey and poultry seasoning until thoroughly mixed, then shape into 4 patties, each about 1 inch thick. Wrap two slices of bacon around each burger, covering the outer edge (secure with a wooden toothpick if necessary). Place the burgers on the hot griddle and cook until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the sour cream, blue cheese, and chives. Place burgers on buns and top with the blue cheese sauce.

    This was very disappointing. I really wanted to like it but the. Poultry seasoning overpowered the turkey and the bacon really didn’t add anything. I will not be making again.
