      As much as I love burgers, it catches up on you, especially in our appearance-driven, heart-disease-threatened society. I like to alternate my burgers in between ground beef and turkey every so often since it’s all the rage now days to make those kind of substitutions. Whereas I, like every other omnivorous Americans, love a good burger with its fixings, I enjoy a good turkey burger as well. The key to appreciate the taste of a turkey patty, rather than thinking that it’s a direct substitute for ground beef…. Because it will never truly be.

      At O’Charley’s, they offer a grilled turkey burger for about $9 (plus tax). Since, I’ve had good soul-satisfying experiences with their burgers (delicious!), I wanted to try their


      turkey burger as well. They don’t profess that it’s healthier or lower in fat on their menu (like other restaurants), but I think there’s a general understanding that it is. This hot sandwich comes with the usual fixings – lettuce, tomato, and onion. They put butter on all of their buns/bread before they grill it so I make a special note to omit that. Like other grilled sandwiches, it comes with the customary fries; however, if you want to complete the healthy gambit, you can order one of the healthier side dishes, like baked potato or steamed broccoli or asparagus (for additional charge). Perhaps even sweet potato fries, which is gaining appreciation these days for the antioxidants and low glycemic index.

      • I must warn you – appreciate this turkey burger for what it is, not what it’s supposed to substitute. O’Charley’s gives you a generous hand-crafted turkey patty with vegetables and pickles. It’s not overly greasy and it’s flavorful in its own rite. It’s not as moist and flavorful as a hamburger (keep in mind that some flavor goes with the missing fat) but it’s satisfying and delicious. I did sense that they didn’t season the patty enough with salt and pepper; they should’ve added some herbs to make up for the absent fat (hence favor). I like to add a combination of mustard and a little bit of ketchup, which I find brings out the flavor of the turkey. It’s a

        wholesome, less-guilty meal. Instead of the fries, I like to order the baked potato without the butter. I ask for a side of pico de gallo, which they make fresh from tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, and cilantro. The combination of hot potato and fresh salsa is a delicious and healthy complement to the hearty turkey burger. If you must, you can ask for cheese on the burger for more flavor; that I haven’t tried yet but it’s worth trying.

        If you’re in the mood for a burger and watching your dietary fat, O’Charley’s offers a good turkey burger. It costs a little more than a hamburger, but isn’t your health and well-being worth a few dollars? Your heart will thank you.
