Yield: Makes 4 servings

  1. 1 16- to 20-inch-long baguette, preferably whole-grain
  2. 1 large red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds, divided
  3. 1 pound 93%-lean ground turkey
  4. 4 tablespoons mango chutney (see Tips), divided
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Cut baguette into 4 equal lengths. Split each piece horizontally and pull out about half of the soft bread from each side.
  3. Finely chop enough onion rounds to equal 1/3 cup. Combine the chopped onion with turkey, 1 tablespoon chutney and salt in a medium bowl; gently mix with your hands until well combined. Form into 4 burgers, about 1/2 inch thick and oval-shaped to match the shape of the bread.
  4. Oil the grill rack (see Tips). Grill the remaining onion rounds until softened and blackened in spots, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Grill the burgers until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°F, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Grill the bread, cut-side down, until just beginning to char on the edges, about 2 minutes.
  5. To assemble sandwiches, spread the remaining mango chutney on the bottom pieces of baguette. Top with a turkey burger, grilled onion and lettuce. Cover with the remaining bread.

Tips & Notes

  • Look for prepared mango chutney—a sweet, tangy and spicy condiment—near other Indian ingredients in the international aisle at most supermarkets.
  • To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
