Turkey Burgers and Baked Steak Fries

Who doesn’t love burgers and fries? So why not eat a healthy version? This meal satisfies that craving with less fat and more nutrients than a typical burger and fries. For example, the steak fries are baked, reducing the fat. The burgers are made from lean turkey, not beef. And for extra nutrients, the toppings include avocado and spinach. For those of us who love spices, add jalapeƱos, mustard, and onion for a bit more zing!

Turkey Burgers and Baked Steak Fries


  • 1 large russet potato
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • Johnny Garlic Seasoning or use sea salt
  • 1/2 lb ground lean turkey meat
  • Yoshidas gourmet sauce
  • Grill Mates hamburger seasoning
  • Crushed red pepper
  • 100% whole wheat or grain Sandwich Thins
  • The Toppings:
  • Fresh avocado
  • Fresh organic baby spinach
  • Sliced jalapenos in the jar (you choose your heat level)
  • Sliced organic tomato
  • Sliced red onion (if the onion is not sweet, I grill mine for a bit)
  • Sweet Heat mustard or mustard of your choice


  1. Baked Fries: Wash 1 large potato and pierce with knife. Put in microwave for 3 minutes. Place on cutting board, and slice into wedges leaving the skin on. Careful it will be hot
  2. In a bowl, pour 2-3 tbsp of olive oil and mix in the Johnny Garlic Seasoning or sea salt. Dip each wedge into oil mixture and place on baking sheet. Put into oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until browned the way you like. I prefer a bit of a crispy outside and soft center. Continue to watch the cooking on these while making the burgers, and remove when browned the way you like. Set aside
  3. Turkey Burger: Place the ground turkey into a bowl and pour 2-3 tbsp Yoshida Sauce over meat, sprinkle with 1-2 tsp seasoning, and use your hands to mix together thoroughly. Form the meat into 2 patties and place on the hot griddle. Turn after browned, and continue to cook through, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Create It: Put the Sandwich Thins into the toaster to warm or if there is room on the griddle heat next to the burgers after they have been turned. Spread mustard on both sides of the Sandwich Thin, and top the bread with the cooked turkey patty. Start layering your burger with the toppings: Baby spinach, sliced onion, tomato, avocado, and end with the jalapenos. This is a messy burger so be prepared with a fork on the side.
