  • 1 pound ground turkey breast OR 4 pre-formed ground turkey patties
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 8 Tablespoons Chili Sauce near ketchup, in the condiment aisle!
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 Tablespoon black pepper
  • 4 100% whole wheat hamburger buns
  • 1/2 cup fresh pico de gallo


  1. If using ground turkey breast, form four evenly-sized turkey patties from meat.  

  2. Place patties in a large, non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Cook on one side until browned, approximately 2 minutes.

  3. Flip patties over and continue cooking on second side for an additional 2 minutes. Flip again, season with garlic salt and ground pepper.   

    Continue cooking burgers, until no longer pink and a thermometer reads 165┬░F internally. 

  4.  Remove from heat. Top each burger with one slice of Swiss cheese. Allow to melt slightly.

  5. Place each burger on a bun bottom. Pour approximately 2 Tablespoons of chili sauce on each burger, followed by 1/8 cup pico. Top with bun and serve.
