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

  • Condiments such as mayo, ketchup, relish, mustard, etc.

Optional special sauce recipe

  • 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.
Try out different topping ideas like tzatziki sauce, grilled veggies, jalapenos or salsa.
Make sure not to overwork the patties so they don’t fall apart.
Store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat on the grill, in the oven or on the stovetop.
Freeze these burgers raw or cooked for up to 3 months, then cook or reheat from frozen.
