Lazy Mama's Oprah Burger

A few weeks ago Ali shared the recipe for Orpah's favorite burger. Ali's version is here, Orpah's version is here. Well, leave it to me to find an even lazier way to prepare this that involves very little prep.

1 cup Healthy Harvest organic Granny Smith applesauce (no chopping required)
1 cup Trader Joes chopped onions (again, no chopping required)
1 lb ground turkey breast
1 Tbsp. salt
1/2 Tbsp. black pepper
2 tsp. chipotle Tabasco™
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp dried parsley (instead of fresh)
1/4 cup The Silver Plate mango chutney (this brand is already pureed)

I mixed this up, formed them into patties, and let them sit for 2 hours. They are very soft, so used a grill pan instead of a grill for best results. We served them on Ezekiel sprouted grain hamburger buns with an extra dallop of chutney. YUM!


  1. Okay, so I'm making these for dinner tonight cause they sounded good. Question though: Do I really put TWO tablespoons of salt and ONE tbsp. of pepper in the mix? When I looked at the 1 lb. of meat I had it just looked like that might be too much...thought I'd doublecheck. Also, is there garlic in this? It looked like there was a jar in the pic.:)

  2. Hold that salt! Yes, there is a typo from when I converted the recipe. I've corrected it. Only 1 tbsp of salt, 1/2 of pepper.

    And while I did try garlic in the first go-round, I wouldn't recommend it. Oprah's calls for shallots but that was too much work for me. I tried subbing garlic but it's best without.

  3. Thanks! We cooked 'em up and thought they were good. I really like the chutney in the mix. Yum.
