Here at MommiNation we’re in the midst of our #FitMommiChallenge, but let’s face it, as the weather gets warmer and cook-out season is upon us, we start craving a good ol burger and fries. So, I wanted to share a simple recipe to satisfy that craving in a lighter, healthier way.

This recipe trims the fat by replacing red meat with ground turkey breast and swapping fried potatoes for some overbaked goodness. It is so high on flavor, trust me, you won’t be left feeling disappointed!

As always if you decide to give it a try, tag me, @YolandeKelly and @MommiNation, and let us know how it turned out!

Pre-heat oven to 380 degrees.

In a large bowl, season as follows per pound of ground turkey breast:

Massage the turkey breast until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop 1 mound of meat for small patties or 2 for large patties.

Place on a non-stick surface such as parchment paper, or a silpat.

In a large cast-iron skillet, bring 2tbsp flavorless oil (like vegetable or canola) to medium heat.

Sautee on each side until golden brown, about 4 min on each side.

Then place the skillet in the oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of the patties, until cooked through.

Remove from the oven and place on lightly toasted potato buns, top with sweet & sour sauce and chopped cilantro and spring onions.

  • Lay all of the wedges on the sheet in a single layer
  • Drizzle with 2tbsp olive oil and toss to coat each wedge with oil

Remove from sheet and place in a serving dish or portion onto plates and garnish with chopped parsley.
