– How to make the best Turkey Burgers for Dinner –
Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with tasty ground turkey recipes, or we tend to forget about ground turkey altogether, but a swap out of beef for turkey on a weekly basis is a good idea.
If you are planning a back yard BBQ – whip up some tasty turkey burgers along with your regular burgers and just watch these turkey burgers disappear!
Here are two of our favorite ground turkey burger recipes that are a flavorful and healthy alternative to beef.
We like to serve these with roasted healthy potatoes and an easy macaroni salad.
- 1 lb. package ground turkey
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 3/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
Mix the olive oil, soy, sauce, and minced garlic together in a small cup.
Place ground turkey in a medium sized bowl and pour olive oil mixture over turkey.
Sprinkle salt and pepper over turkey then mix gently using your hands.
Mix in the cheddar cheese and place turkey in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to chill.
Form 4 generous patties and pan fry or grill.
Pan Fry: Heat about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet on medium to high heat. Cook the turkey burgers until golden brown (about 3 minutes.) Flip the burgers and cook the same way until the other side is golden brown. Reduce heat and let burgers cook for about 3-4 minutes or until cooked through.
Grilled: Lightly oil your grill before cooking turkey patties. Place turkey patties on the grill and sear them until they are browned on both sides. Lower the heat on the grill and continue cooking for about 5-6 minutes or until cooked through.
