Whether you want to avoid red meat or just want a lighter option for backyard grilling, a turkey burger is a great option. We always keep our ground turkey in the freezer all summer just to get out of the same old hamburger rut that seems to happen every year. It’s a very lean and healthy meat, but also packed with flavor when cooked properly. Fear not, a full-time chef is here to help you prepare the tastiest, juiciest turkey burgers ever!
How to keep turkey burgers juicy:
Adding healthy fats to your meat is key to keeping your burgers tasty and juicy. You can use the listed olive oil, or try other healthy fats like avocado oil.
Alternatively, you can fry half a chopped onion and mix it with the meat. Onions help keep burgers moist. It’s a great option if you don’t want to add extra fat, but we highly recommend olive oil. This is a great burger!
The real key to this recipe is making an indent in the middle of the burger with your thumb. The burger will expand in the middle as it cooks, which will help create an evenly cooked burger.
Can I turn The Best Ever Turkey Burger into a cheeseburger?
certainly! Just add the cheese directly to the ground turkey. Just make sure it’s shredded cheese and mix it in properly. You need to mix it to distribute it evenly throughout the meat.
How do you know when your turkey burger is done?
Ground turkey needs to be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a meat thermometer for accuracy.
You can make this recipe on an outdoor grill, or indoors using a griddle or heavy skillet. If using an outdoor grill, increase the temperature to about 450 degrees. Make sure your grates are well oiled so your burgers don’t stick together. Be patient and let your burger cook for a while before flipping. If you flip your burgers too soon, they will fall apart.
Storage and Reheating Instructions:
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in a skillet on the stovetop over medium-low heat or in the microwave in 30-second increments until heated through.
