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


  • 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.
