Earthy mushrooms lend this burger a meatier texture and a richer taste.


  • 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms
  • 1 ¼ pounds 7% fat ground turkey
  • ½ cup reduced fat ricotta cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Place mushrooms and 1 cup of water in a small microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Loosely cover and microwave on HIGH for 1 ½ minutes. Set aside and let steep for 10 minutes.
  3. Heat grill to a medium-high to high temperature. Drain mushrooms and squeeze out excess liquid (reserve liquid to enhance soups or sauces).
  4. Finely chop mushrooms and place mushroom in a large mixing bowl with remaining ingredients and mix well.
  5. Divide into turkey mixture into 4 equal portions (5 ounces each).
  6. Toss one portion from one hand to the other to form a ball.
  7. Flatten into a ¾ inch thick patty.
  8. Repeat with remaining 3 portions.
  9. Oil grill rack with vegetable oil and grill patties for 3 to 4 minutes.
  10. Flip with spatula and grill for 3 to 4 more minutes. If not completely cooked through to your liking, move the patties to a cooler area of the grill and cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
  11. If unsure of the doneness, insert an instant-read thermometer into the center of a burger; it should reach 160 degrees F.
