This classic burger is easy to make, super delicious, and a great way to get some protein. Brioche buns are a perfect choice for Crohn's, as they're tasty and low in fiber. During flare-ups, go with lower fat turkey and skip the raw veggies.

Yields: 4-6 portions

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup red onions, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, finely minced
  • 1 each egg
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 lbs. turkey meat, ground
  • 4 each tomato slices
  • 4 each bibb lettuce slices
  • 4 each brioche buns, toasted
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper

Low fat doesn’t have to mean low flavor! Chef Geoffrey Zakarian shows us how to put together a turkey burger that’s Crohn’s-friendly and still full of flavor.

Method of Preparation:

1. Preheat grill to medium high heat.

2. In a small sauté pan, heat the olive oil over a medium flame and sweat the red onions, garlic, and mushrooms, until they are cooked, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and cool completely in the fridge.

3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the egg, breadcrumbs, onion-mushroom mixture, and turkey meat. Fold the mixture with your hands, being careful to not overwork.  Season with salt and pepper.

4. Divide the patties into even portions and season the exterior. Grill for 6 minutes on each side, or until the burgers are cooked through. 

5. Serve the burgers on a toasted bun with bibb lettuce and tomato, or whatever you feel like dressing them with.
