Honey Mustard and Arugula Turkey Burgers

I love eating hamburgers. I look back on the days of being a teenager and wolfing down a burger anytime without health issues. Well, those days are long gone and now I have to watch my blood pressure, which means less red meat. What else can I eat? Turkey burgers! This recipe really hit the nail on the head with flavor and ease of preparation. Topping with peppery arugula beautifully compliments the mustard, so I recommend not substituting lettuce. My family absolutely loved these burgers.


1/2 cup coarse-grained mustard, divided
4 tsp honey
1 lb ground turkey, 85% lean 15% fat
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup arugula
1/4 cup ketchup
4 wheat hamburger buns, toasted, split


  • Preheat broiler on high.
  • Whisk 1/4 cup mustard and honey in a small bowl until smooth.
  • Combine turkey, mustard mixture, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix well. Form into four 4 oz, 1/2 inch-thick burgers.
  • Broil the first side for 7 to 10 minutes, till browned and firm. Gently flip burgers, as they will be tender, and broil for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Serve on buns topping each burger with 1/4 cup arugula, 1 Tbsp ketchup, and 1 Tbsp mustard.
