Just as you would with regular beef burger, this turkey burger recipe requires simple steps to make. You only need one bowl and a cook time of 10 minutes or under. A perfect dinner recipe. I love a quick fix dinner and this easy burger recipe is one of them.

Have you ever had a bad experience with eating chicken or turkey burger that was bland and flavourless? I apologise and I promise that it is a different case with this. You are promised a flavourful, delicious, juicy burger here. Turkey can easily dry out if not cooked properly so that is why I have made sure you don’t experience such with this moist easy turkey burger recipe.

Why This Recipe Works

Turkey burger is inexpensive, here in the UK, 500g of turkey mince cost around £1.50 and that is enough to feed at least 4 people. Or 750g if you are looking at a mega-size burger

It is quick and doesn’t require much prep time. 10 minutes tops and you are done

Easy to customise you add whatever spices and herbs you want, to make it yours.

This recipe is perfect for any time of the year

It is a healthy alternative to a beef burger, a good option when you fancy a low-calorie dinner

What Is in My Turkey Burger

I have used simple and everyday ingredients for my juicy turkey burgers, feel free to add any spices and herbs of choice that you are confident with. If you are wondering what sage is doing on the list, I am a lover of that herb and I use it every time in my meat. So why not on turkey? You only need a little and I can assure you that you would be hooked too.

Turkey mince (ground turkey): Substitute with chicken mince

Cheese (grated cheddar cheese): substitute with parmesan or pecorino

Breadcrumbs: I used plain breadcrumbs

Egg

Paprika: any type would do just fine

Salt

Black pepper

Worcestershire

Dried sage

Chilli flakes: this is optional, I just like a bit of kick in my meal.

Onions: Because every burger needs onions

How To Make The Best Turkey Burger Patties

Prep all the burger filling and set aside or in the fridge until use

This is very easy to make, more like a dump and mix type of recipe that comes together in 10 minutes tops

First, you add the mince to a bowl, add the Worcestershire sauce and mix to combine. Followed by the rest of the ingredient and gently mix to combine.

Divide the mince into 4 parts and form to make patties about 1 inch thickness

Place a skillet over medium heat, add oil and heat till hot, carefully add the patties and cook them for about 2 minutes or until golden brown but not burnt. Flip to the other side and sear for another 1 to 2 minutes.

Build your burger and enjoy.

How to Know When Turkey Burger Is Cooked.

Just like chicken, cooked turkey would change colour to white but be careful not to overcook these patties. The internal temperature should read 165F/73C.

Tips

Substitute turkey mince for chicken mince

If you find the patties sticky or hard to form, wet your hand with water or oil. This will aid forming the burger patties properly.
