By Ann Lindemann

Turkey Apple Burgers with Yogurt Mustard SauceJust in time for the summer grilling season, these turkey burgers deliver lots of flavor with not as much fat as traditional ground beef burgers. An easy maple syrup glaze and a dollop of tangy yogurt mustard sauce pump the taste up a notch as well.


  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 6 tsp whole-grain mustard
  • 12 ounces 99% extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup shredded apple
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 large whole-wheat hamburger rolls
  • 1 1/2 cups spinach leaves, trimmed, washed, and dried


  1. Combine ground turkey, apple, 2 tsp mustard, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, 1/4 tsp salt and pepper in large bowl; mix well.
  2. Form turkey mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. (Patties can be prepared up to 8 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
  3. Preheat grill to medium.
  4. Mix maple syrup and remaining 2 tsp mustard in small bowl.
  5. Mix yogurt and 2 tsp. of mustard in small bowl.
  6. Lightly oil grill grate by rubbing a piece of oil-soaked paper towel over the surface (use tongs to hold paper towel). Mist turkey patties with cooking spray. Grill patties, covered, over medium heat until browned and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes per side, brushing cooked sides with maple syrup-mustard mixture during the last 2 minutes of cooking.
  7. Shortly before patties are done, toast rolls over grill or in toaster.
  8. Place patties on rolls and garnish with spinach and yogurt-mustard sauce.
