Ranch Turkey Burger

We’ve all had our share of low calorie turkey burger recipes, but this one is one of my faves. Loaded with tang and flavor, this turkey burger recipe tastes much better than most, and yet still keeps the calorie count low. Ground turkey can be pretty bland, and there’s nothing more disappointing than a bland burger. And with just a 3 Point Total, this Ranch Turkey Burger reaches new heights of yumminess! Though this is not an official Weight Watchers Turkey Burger Recipe, it’s a low calorie, low fat burger that any meat-eating dieter will love. Try serving with some 1 Point Butternut Squash Fries!

  1. This was great! The ranch really gives the turkey meat lots of flavor. We added crumbled bacon on top to give it that “turkey bacon ranch” flavor. So good! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Do you have the nutritional content for this recipe? I’m on the DASH diet for hypertension, so I”m mostly curious about sodium content.

    Excellent recipe. I have so much fun on this site, and love the comments, very helpful. Thought I would chime in myself for a change, Ate just the patty, no condiments / cheese / bun / mayo – nothing required, just excellent

  4. Excellent burger. I will definitely use this recipe all the time. So tasty.

  5. Hubby & I LOVED this. No bun, just the patty and a great salad. Excellent recipe!

  6. Are all your recipes listed here Points OR are they Points Plus?

    • The recipes that say “Point Total” in the title are older recipes based on the old Points system. The newer recipes that have “Points +” in the title are based on the new Points Plus system, and they also have the nutritional info posted so that you can calculate the old Points value, if you’d like.

  7. 5 points plus value :(

  8. I would love to know the pts plus for this burger too. It looks really good.

  9. Does anyone know what the points plus points for this burger is?

  10. I made this tonight for dinner. It was sooo quick and easy and absolutely DELICIOUS! Everybody ate theirs with no complaints and my son went back for seconds. I loved them and this is definately a keeper.

  11. What's the actual calorie count sans bun/extras (lettuce, tomato, etc)? This sounds great but I'm counting calories so the calorie count would be a great addition to this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!

  16. I made these tonight, and my husband and I loved them. I found a Hidden Valley Spicy Ranch dressing mix, and it gave it a little extra oomph! Thanks!
