A dish that makes you go “hmmmm?!”

Before you ask…it’s lean ground turkey breast with Lipton Beefy Onion Soup mix.  Don’t knock it until you try it!  Perhaps the sauteed cherry tomatoes do not compliment the dish…but DANG they were goooood!!  Keep the recipe…use it with a chicken dish if you wish 🙂


Turkey Pattie

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey breast
  • 1 package of Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix (I used about 2/3 of package)

Sauteed Cherry Tomatoes

  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • EVOO
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • fresh Basil
  • cracked black pepper


Put tomatoes in a skillet, drizzle EVOO, and crack pepper.  Cover and cook over medium/high heat until tomatoes start to blister.  Add balsamic vinegar (roughly 1/8 cup).  Continue to cover and cook.  Shake skillet or stir every so often.  Balsamic will reduce and thicken up to a syrup consistency and tomatoes will continue to soften up.   Add basil at the end (ribbon cut or tear into small pieces).  Cook another few minutes and it’s done.  So simple.

While your tomatoes are cooking…in a bowl or directly in another skillet, add turkey.  Sprinkle onion mix (about 2/3 of package) and mix with hands.  You can either form hamburger patties or be lazy like me and just smash it into the skillet and cook one huge burger and cut up later.  Cover and cook over medium heat until done.

If you want…you can add a bun and make into a burger…or keep it low carb and eat as is.  I have to admit that the sauteed cherry tomatoes really didn’t go with the burger…but I was hungry and this is what I had to cook.  lol…

**The onion soup mix is loaded with sodium…so if you’re sodium sensitive…either drink ALOT of water after this…or use one of my other turkey recipes 😉

  1. I’m excited to try your recipes! Thanks for posting such informative directions with pics! Quick question: how do you make a healthy balsamic glaze? Thank you!

    1. Thank you!! I hope you enjoy them and please let me know how they turn out for you!
      Balsamic Glaze is really just reduced balsamic vinegar. Sugar or corn syrup is added to sweeten it up, but honestly, i’ve made it by just reducing it over medium/high heat and the vinegar turns sweet as it thickens up. If you want it sweeter, you can add alittle splenda. **Note** when you heat the balsamic vinegar, it will have a strong smell…but it’s so worth it! If you don’t want to take the time to reduce your own…don’t feel too guilty about using a store bought product. U really use so very little. A drizzle goes a long way in regards to flavor. 🙂
