How to Make the Best Turkey Burgers

The full recipe for these simply delicious turkey burgers is provided below, but here are a few recommendations to take your turkey burgers to the next level:

  • Turkey: firstly, you want to make sure you use high quality ground turkey.  Since the turkey is the main flavor profile, it is important that the turkey shines through in this dish.
  • Patties: next, once the turkey and other ingredients have been combined and the patties have been formed, you need to place them in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.  This is important because it will help the patties form to create a stronger patty for frying which will prevent them from falling apart in the fry pan.

Serving Your Turkey Burgers

For a traditional serving of your turkey burgers, use the bun of your choosing.  There are many more creative ways you can also serve these simple and delicious turkey burgers:

  • Serve with your favorite toppings and no bun or use lettuce in place of a bun for a low-carb alternative.
  • Make a protein rich breakfast by adding an egg prepared your favorite way on top.
  • Create a meat-infused grilled cheese.

For any unused patties, you can freeze them uncooked separately on a pan.  Once frozen, you can combine them into the same container and store them in the freezer for 3 to 4 months.
