  • 12 ounces mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces turkey, ground, 99% lean
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • Cooking spray, as needed


  1. Chop mushrooms into small pieces. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the mushrooms. Sauté until the mushrooms are soft and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, add the turkey, egg, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  4. Add the garlic to the mushrooms and cook for 30 seconds. Turn off the heat and cool slightly.
  5. Once the mushrooms have cooled slightly, add them to the turkey mixture and stir well to combine.
  6. Shape turkey mixture into five equally-sized patties.
  7. Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Cook the burgers over medium heat for about 3 to 5 minutes., or until browned. Flip the burgers and cook for another 2 to 4 minutes.
  8. The burgers are done when a thermometer inserted in the center of the burger registers 165 degrees.
  9. Assemble each burger on a whole wheat bun and your favorite toppings.
