Indian Curry Turkey Burgers

I added Indian Curry Turkey Burgers to my meal prep rotation.

They’re mostly for me cuz my husbean prefers red meat in burger form, not turkey.

Although, I did make these for lunch the other day and I didn’t hear any complaints.

So, there’s hope. I think it’s cuz I added a whole bunch of jalapenos to his…

A mix of curry. turmeric, cumin & cilantro and we’re talking! 

Scroll down and I’ll show you how I’ve been eating them since I’m kinda trying to not eat bread at this current moment in time.

Let’s gather our ingredients.

It all gets mashed together!

For the onions, I found that I liked them grated better than chopped. Use a cheese grater.

Try not to cry about it. They are chopped in this photo. Disregard that.

Ok, we are ready to shape into patties.

This is a step you can do ahead of time. So if you’re not ready to cook them, cover them up and keep them in the fridge. 

You can make 4 big burgers and 5 average-sized burgers and 6 medium-sized ones.

I go for the 6 so I can stretch it out. 

Cook them in a skillet with some olive oil. Make sure they are cooked through.

Now you can put them aside for your meal prep…


Or serve them up right away!  I made mine with lettuce for buns.

I also mixed up a yogurt/cucumber dip to top these. 

Mango chutney would be delicious as well. I might play around with adding jalapenos to the mixture in my next batch. 

But I really just like them over rice… with a bunch of lemon and cilantro.

Also pairs well with a side salad.

I’d also serve them with naan!  I think I have a garlic naan recipe somewhere…

Or just eat them cold…standing in your kitchen staring off into space as I do. 

Anyways, if you see these in my #shutterbeanmealprep for a bit, it’s because I’m kinda obsessed. 

Maybe you’ll see why.
