Fantastic Food Friday- Marinated Turkey Burgers with Mango Salsa

I had 4 premade turkey burgers I needed to use up. I found a recipe through the Just Eat Real Food Facebook page and loosely base our burgers on it. Go to Against All Grain for the original recipe but here’s what I did. (I omitted several ingredients and changed some others.)

1/2 c pineapple juice

2 ½ tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon evoo

2 minced garlic cloves

½ tsp ground ginger

Mix it all up and let the burgers marinade for a while. I wish I would have let mine marinade for longer than 20 minutes, but it was last minute and we were starving!


While the turkey burgers are on cooking on your grill pan, mix up the salsa for the topping. The salsa definitely took the burgers from good to great.

½ cup chopped mango

½ cup pineapple

½ cup diced tomato

4 fresh basil leaves chopped up

2 tablespoons red onion

2 tablespoons pineapple juice

Blend all ingredients in a food processor (I love my manual one from Pampered Chef!), until you get a chunky salsa texture. Top burgers with salsa.


While we didn’t use a bun, I think these would be great on a thin bun or wrapped in lettuce. And while the girls didn’t like the salsa too much, both loved the burger. Even my 5 year old, who hates anything that looks like a hamburger.


What’s your favorite recipe you’ve found through Facebook?

I'd love to hear what you think!
