Blueberry Turkey Burgers

BT Calgary | posted Friday, Aug 7th, 2015

Now, you can have as many burgers as you’d like, guilt-free. (Which helps if you’re going to eat a bucket of fries with them.) These turkey burgers are light, lean and packed with B.C. blueberries.


  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup B.C. blueberries (fresh or frozen), roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp whole grain mustard
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp finely minced garlic
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • 4 whole grain burger buns



  1. Preheat barbecue to 350°F/175°C.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except oil, barbecue sauce and buns, and divide into four 3/4-inch thick patties. Keep refrigerated until ready to cook.
  3. Grease the grill with an oiled paper towel. If cooking over stovetop, heat oil in a heavy bottom pan set over medium-high heat.
  4. Place patties on the grill (or in pan), and cook for approximately 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Flip over, reduce the heat to medium-low and finish cooking for another 5 to 7 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F/75°C.
  5. Brush with barbecue sauce and serve on buns with condiments as desired.
