Burger patties

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 yellow onion, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Topping ideas & assembly

  • 4 burger buns
  • Cheese slices
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Red onion, sliced
  • Pickles
  • Condiments such as mayo, ketchup, relish, mustard, etc.

Optional special sauce recipe

  • 1/2 cup light mayo
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp relish
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp garlic or onion powder


  • Mix ingredients together for burger patties in a large bowl, then form into equal-sized patties.
  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over med-high heat. Add burger patties and cook for 4-5 minutes per side until cooked through (meat thermometer should read 165 F in the middle of burger).
  • Meanwhile, mix together ingredients for special sauce if desired, along with other toppings.
  • Add burger patties to buns (can toast for 1 min if desired), along with desired toppings then serve and enjoy!

BBQ instructions

  • Preheat BBQ to med-high heat (400 F). Mix ingredients together for burger patties in a large bowl, then form into equal-sized patties and spray each side with cooking spray.
  • Grill burgers for 7-8 minutes until fully cooked all the way through (should register 165 F in the center). Serve with buns and toppings. Can toast buns on the grill for 1 min each if desired.



NOTE: Nutritional info is for 1 burger with bun and 2 tbsp special sauce; this does not include toppings or cheese. Without special sauce, burger is 317 calories. Cheese will add 110 calories, while vegetable/pickle toppings will add minimal calories.
