Grilled Turkey Burgers
This easy turkey burger recipe keeps the burgers nice and moist by adding onion and garlic along with a little bit of Worcestershire and BBQ sauce.
Adding the sauces helps to hold the burgers together and keeps the turkey from drying out while adding flavors that compliment the char from the grill.
It’s worth noting that these burgers need to be cooked all the way through and that medium-rare turkey is a bad idea.
These burgers are a nice healthy alternative and have fewer calories than regular beef burgers without skimping on the flavor.
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1/4 cup white onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp ground pepper
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp BBQ sauce
- 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.
- Grill the burgers on a medium-high grill for six to seven minutes a side. With ground turkey, you want to make sure the burgers are cooked all the way through, but not so long they become hockey pucks.
- Once the burgers have finished cooking, serve them with your favorite burger toppings.
