- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1/4 cup white onion

- Start by finely mincing the onion and garlic. In a large bowl mix the onion, garlic, salt, pepper, Worcestershire and BBQ sauces together with the ground turkey. Make sure to get everything mixed together to distribute the flavors.
- Using your hands, form four or five patties about an inch thick.
