Grilled Turkey Ricotta Burger

Serving Size

4-6 servings



  • 1-1 1/2 lb (0.45-0.67 kg) ground turkey
  • 1/2 (~125 g) Canadian Ricotta cheese
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste



  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) deseeded minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce*
  • 1/2 lime, zested
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice
  • Salt, to taste



  • 4-6 whole wheat burger buns
  • Canadian cheddar cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Onion, sliced
  • Tomato, sliced


1. In a medium bowl, break up ground turkey into small pieces. Add all other burger patty ingredients and combine using clean hands.
2. Divide the meat into 4 equal portions. Form each into a ball and gently flatten into a patty of about 1″ in thickness. Cover and refrigerate.
3. Preheat gas grill, turning all burners to high and cover for 10-15 minutes.
4. Cook covered, flip when burger no longer sticks to the grill. Sear on both sides for 5-7 minutes each. Turn the burners down to medium and continue to cook until they have an internal temperature of 160˚F (71˚C).
5. Remove burgers from the grill and cover, allowing to rest 5 minutes. Serve with buns, burger sauce, and garnishes.
