Turkey Burgers For The Win!

I try my best to stick with a no red meat diet Monday through Friday.  I slip up a lot, but for dinner tonight I thought I’d go ahead and do the right thing.  I suggested turkey burgers for dinner and my husband agreed!  They came out so moist and yummy.  Turkey burgers tend to be a bit dry, but these came out perfect!

In a bowl I mixed some organic ground turkey, one egg to bind, a small bit of salt (I added more later), black pepper, white pepper, creole seasoning, worcestershire sauce, cayenne, paprika, poultry seasoning, fresh oregano, fresh parsley and minced garlic.  I know, it seems like a lot but turkey is a bit harder to build flavor for than ground beef.


Heat up a skillet or grill pan to medium-high heat.  Once hot, salt the surface of your turkey patty one more time and set into the pan with oil.  One thing I like to do is take a spatula and press down onto the patty firmly to get a nice sear on the other side.  It also helps the inside cook a little faster.  About 3-5 minutes on each side should be good.


I like it hot, and those who know me know I do.  So I added serrano peppers to my patty.  Totally optional.


Throw some cheese on that…… I used american.  If you have a pan safe bowl  place it over your patties to get your cheese a meltin’ fast.  We honestly just used our stand mixer bowl. Haha.


I like to toast my buns on a pan with butter.  I added mayo and sriracha mustard.  Threw on some mixed greens and sit my little turkey patty in its little nest.


Put it all together and ate it all up!
