Curry Burger

So this recipe is an oldie but a goodie from a Weight Watchers cookbook I pulled out. I've made this before as the burger patties, but this time, I, quite frankly, was just too lazy to form burgers.

In the end, the hubs and I discovered we really like the meal this way - just a ground meat with the rice. Really, either way you make this it's good and tasty...

Curried Turkey Burger with Rice

1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup plain low fat yogurt
1/2 small onion, grated (grate for burgers, dice for the meat mixture)
1 T bread crumbs (omit if you're making it the way we did)
1 T curry powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cups brown rice
1/2 cup bottled mango chutney (I don't like mango, so anytime I make this, I've never used it)

OK for the burgers: spray a broiler pan and preheat your broiler and use the turkey, 1/4 cup yogurt, onion, bread crumbs, curry, pepper in bowl and form in to 4 burgers and cook until done and serve with the rice, the chutney and the rest of the yogurt.

NOW for the burger crumble like we made it.

Spray a pan with Pam and saute the onion and the meat together. Add in the curry, salt and pepper. When done, remove to low heat and once it cools a bit, add in the yogurt and stir to make it creamy, then turn the heat back up to warm it up. Serve it over the rice.
