Turkey Burgers

Pin It
We've been eating these same turkey burgers for about 3 years and love them. I won't even try a new recipe because I think these are perfect. I strongly suggest using a meat thermometer when cooking ground turkey because it can dry out fast. With these I stick my digital meat thermometer in once I flip them. I set it for 10 degrees cooler than I want so I have time to melt the cheese before they are done. Use any kind of cheese you like too. We use cheddar, provolone, or monterey jack. This picture is kind of boring because I was lazy and we didn't have lettuce or tomatoes with it. Just meat, cheese, and BBQ sauce is good enough for us!


1 lb lean ground turkey
1/4 C seasoned bread crumbs
1 TB finely diced onion
1 egg white
1 TB chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp olive oil

In a large bowl mix all ingredients, except olive oil, together until just combined. Dived into 4 equal patties.
Heat oil in skillet. Cook patties over medium heat, turning once, to an internal temperature of 180 degrees F.


  1. Charlotte, congrats on creating your new blog! I'm always looking for new recipes, so I'll be following along if that's ok! This one looks yummy...simple, healthy, filling and you can dress it up or down. Can't wait to try it!

  2. Yum! We tried these last night for dinner and it was a winner! My kids gobbled them up and Ryan loved that they were smothered in BBQ sauce. He didn't even realize it was ground turkey, until I told him. (he isn;t sure abt the whole ground turkey idea sometimes) He thought they were great! Thanks for the recipe. I have a few more recipes of yours on my menu soon...
