Turkey Burgers

My husband had convinced himself — and me — that he would never like turkey burgers.  But I just had to give them one more shot.  Because I like them.  And I’m the cook.  😉 

Nate, being a good sport, agreed to try the new concoction I came up with.  And, much to my surprise, this last attempt was all it took.  I made sure to add some extra seasonings and even found a mayonnaise sauce in my pile of loose recipes (although the burgers would be great — and healthier — without the mayo as well).  One step at a time, right? 

Hmmm, success feels good!  🙂

Turkey Burgers

1 beaten egg

1/3 cup dry bread crumbs (Italian style)

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon dry parsley

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 pound ground raw turkey

4 hamburger rolls

4 leaves lettuce

1 large tomato, sliced

1.  In a medium mixing bowl combine egg, bread crumbs, onion powder, parsley, and Worcestershire sauce.  Add turkey and mix well.  Shape into four 3/4 inch thick patties.

2.  In a large skillet, cook turkey patties on a nonstick griddle, coated with nonstick cooking spray.  (Over medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once).

3.  To serve, spread bottom of hamburger roll with Mayonnaise sauce (recipe below) and top with lettuce.  Add turkey burger, slice of tomato, and top of bun.  Enjoy!

Mayonnaise Sauce

In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tablespoon chopped green onion, 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, and a dash of pepper.  Cover and chill until serving time.

  1. These look so yummy!! It’s been a while since I’ve had turkey burgers, and this recipe sounds perfect. 😀

    (p.s. we made the bruschetta chicken for when we had dinner over Pepere’s…*so* yummy!! Probably one of my top 5 favorite chicken recipes ever 😀 )

    I have to try this. I was one of those people who said I’d never eat a turkey burger, and then I sampled one at a picnic and loved it. I ordered one at a restaurant soon after that, and it was gross. A frown. I think it depends on the recipe, so I’m excited to try the one you shared!
