Total Time 25 mins


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup finely diced onion this is important, especially when serving to little ones
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 cup finely diced green bell pepper
  • ¼ cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • ½ cup finely grated carrot
  • 1 pound ground turkey or other ground meat
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce


  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the bell peppers and cook until fork tender, about 5 minutes. Add the carrot and let cook another minute or two to warm through and then remove pan from heat and set aside.
  • Place the turkey in a bowl, mash lightly with a fork, season with salt and pepper, and add the barbecue sauce. Add the cooked vegetables and mix thoroughly to combine. Shape into 6 patties.
  • Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot (flick water and if it sizzles, it’s ready), add the patties and cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until no longer pink on the inside.
  • Serve per your preference.
