Dukan Diet Recipe – Turkey Burgers

When I make burgers, probably three times out of every four, I use turkey or chicken rather than beef, as I try to restrict the amount of red meat that I eat.  If I’m going to eat beef I usually treat myself to steak.

On PP days you can eat your burger between Dukan Oat Bran Pancakes or Dukan Oat Bran Toast with a few slices of red onion and gherkins.  On PV days you can add salad to the burger and you can also substitute the pancakes or toast for two large portbello mushrooms.

You can use this recipe to make meatballs that on PV days you can have in a spicy tomato and vegetable sauce.  If you are unable to find the right low fat sausages you can shape this mix into sausages to eat with dry fried egg, mushrooms, tomatoes and Dukan Diet Oat Bran toast for a really substantial brunch.

Turkey Burgers (Makes 2 burgers)


  • 250 grams of lean turkey mince
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 egg white
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Chop the onion very finely.
  2. Place the turkey and onion in a bowl, add a little salt and pepper and mix well.
  3. Add the egg white and mix again.
  4. Divide the mixture in two and form two burgers.
  5. Dry fry in a nonstick pan turning once halfway through cooking.

Some Variations

You can add mustard or chilli flakes or a small amount of cooked chopped mushrooms.  Don’t add too many mushrooms or the mix won’t hold together.  If you don’t like Oat Bran pancakes, muffins and so on or just haven’t had time to do any baking you can also add some oat bran to the mix.  You may have to add another egg white depending on how much bran you’ve mixed in.

    Can you use cajun spice mixes the powder jars on attack phase

      Hi Natalie

      Some of the mixes do contain oil. Why not make your own, that why you have total control of the ingredents.

    Hi Amber,

    I can’t find the 99% FF ground turkey. I did get the turkey breasts too (1.5 g fat). So is the stuff I bought legal for the DD?

    Thank you!

      Hi Gina

      I’d say yes!

        Thank you!!!

    Are there guidelines for ground turkey and ground beef? What is considered low fat? I bought the Jennie-O ground turkey 93/7, but it still has 8g of fat (12%). The lean ground beef I bought is the same. Thank you in advance! I love your site and check in often if I’m unsure about anything! It’s wonderful!

      Hi Gina

      I always use the lowest fat content I can find. Jennie-O does do a 99% fat free Turkey mince and the best ground beef you’re likely to find is around 95% fat free. Just so you can compare the figures, 85 g of sirloin steak has 13 g of fat and 85g of turkey breast has 1.41g of fat.

      I’m glad you approve of my site!

    Hi. I’m confused. These sound good – but how can you have veg on a PP day? Also how many oatcakes can you actually have per day?

    • Amber on August 6, 2011

      Hi Nigel

      You can have the basic recipe using onion on a PP day as you are allowed a small amount of onion on protein days. You would only be able to add the mushrooms on a PV day.


      Oat cakes aren’t allowed. The only oat product you can use is oat bran which you can use to make oat bran pancakes. You are limited to the number of pancakes that your allowance will make.

      Best wishes
