The Turkey Burger

Happy Hump Day! I hope you're week is flying by.

I’m so excited to share a recipe that has been on repeat in in the V House for the last few months – Turkey Burgers! Last year I shared Venison Burgers, which we still love, but in an effort to cut out as much red meat as I can, a Turkey version was in order. You can vary the spices to meet your taste; this version is a classic take on the traditional burger.

I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients (Makes 4 Patties)
1 LB Ground Lean Turkey
1 Egg
¼ Cup Bar-B-Q Sauce
2 Sprigs of Green Onions; thinly sliced
Garlic Salt
Season All
*Note: You can also add Italian bread crumbs if your meat isn’t holding patty form. I’ve only had to do this a few times, but it is a great way to firm up the meat.


Preheat grill to medium heat and coat with a generous amount of non-stick spray. Keep in mind that turkey is very lean and will stick more easily due to the low fat content; use lots of non-stick spray to help during the grilling process.

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients listed above together. Then quarter the bowl and form each section into a patty.

Grill for 10-13 minutes. Serve on a toasted bun with fresh veggies!

If you have any leftovers, they are also great served over a bed of fresh spinach!

Thank you for stopping by!
