  • Burgers
  • 20 oz. extra lean 99% ground turkey
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. caraway seeds
  • 1 c. sauerkraut squeezed dry
  • 1/4 c. panko bread crumbs
  • Toppings
  • 8 slices swiss cheese
  • 9 oz. container thinly shaved deli corned beef
  • 1 c. sauerkraut
  • 1/2 c. light thousand island dressing
  • 12 round slices or 6 large slices halved rye or marble rye bread


  • In a medium bowl, using your hands, combine the turkey, Dijon, Worcestershire, sauerkraut, bread crumbs and salt.
  • Form the mixture into 3-4 inch patties and place on a lined baking sheet. Refrigerate covered for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours.
  • On a medium-high grill or skillet, coated with non-stick cooking spray, cook each burger for 2-3 minutes on each side. Towards the end of the cooking process, top each burger with a few slices of corned beef and a half slice of Swiss cheese so it is all heated through.
  • Meanwhile, spray each piece of bread with non-stick spray and add them to the grill for 1 minute on each side to toast them up.
  • Top each piece of bread with a burger, 1 1/2 Tbsp. sauerkraut and 1 Tbsp. of thousand island. Serve immediately.
