Janice's Razzo Italiano Turkey Burgers

The nutrition facts for this delicious lower calorie burger can be found at Calorie Count!

Razzo Italiano Turkey Burger


1 pound ground turkey, extra lean
1 t olive oil
2 T onion, chopped
2 T red pepper, chopped
3 oz prosciutto
1-2 t oregano
1-2 t basil
1 T garlic, minced (two if you are using pre-minced garlic from a jar as the flavor is not as strong as fresh)
2 T steak sauce
1/3 C barbecue sauce
1/2 onion, sliced
2 tomatoes, sliced


Saute the chopped onion and red pepper in olive oil til the veges start to brown, remove from heat to cool.

Slice and saute the prosciutto in the same pan, adding oil if needed, until it begins to crisp a bit - not so much that it crumbles. Set aside to cool.

Combine well (w/hands) the lean ground turkey with oregano, basil, garlic, steak sauce, and the cooled veges. Inhale the aroma - use your nose and eyes to help you determine if more spicing is required. Start with the smaller measurements of seasonings and add more to suit you.

Form into four large patties. Grill, basting with the barbecue sauce, melt provolone on top if you like but add in the calories as they are not included in the count.

Great on a ciabatta bun (calories for buns and zillions of other food items can be found at Calorie Count!) topped with the prosciutto, raw onion, and tomato. Add any other condiment you like.


  1. Rocket Burger sounds great! Would be helpful if you included the Nutritional (calorie) information.

  2. the link was not good. I've fixed it, so just click on the words "nutrition facts" for calories and etc! Thanks for pointing out the broken link!

  3. do the nutritional facts include the bun or only the burger?

  4. when you click on the link, you will see the list of ingredients. No bun included. To get that, do the food search button on buns! I left the bun off as many do not use buns, easy to add!
