These turkey burgers come out juicy, thanks to the added oil and onions. Turkey is a delicious, slightly healthier choice for the grill.


1 package Ground turkey; 99% lean or better
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
3 teaspoon Fresh parsley; chopped
1/2 cup Bread crumbs; seasoned
1/2 medium Onion; diced
1 medium Egg
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoon Salt
Pepper; to taste
Cayenne; to taste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 package Whole wheat buns
1 tablespoon Yellow Mustard; or Dijon
1/4 head Lettuce
1/2 Red onion; sliced thinly
4 slices Monterey jack cheese

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Use your hands to mix burger ingredients together lightly. DO NOT OVERMIX.

Using a tupperware lid, shape burgers into patties, no more than 3/4 inches thick. Place in freezer for at least 40 minutes; this helps keep the burger together during cooking.

Preheat grill to medium hot heat. Oil grill and place chilled burgers on it. They cook quickly, so turn after 3-4 minutes. Cook on each side for a total of 4 minutes. Place cheese on burgers, cover grill to melt. Serve with traditional burger toppings.

Drizzle some olive oil (careful of flames!) on the burger 1 minute before serving.


A slightly healthier choice for the grill. Excellent flavor.

Tip: Use the top of a plastic container to shape the burgers. Be sure to freeze them for an hour before cooking; this helps keep the burgers together.

I don't eat red meat, so these are a perfect basis for turkey burgers. Can adjust onions, spice as desired.

I liked this recipe a lot... I made turkey sliders instead of full size burgers...people are still talking about how great they were!!!

These are amazing. I used ground chicken instead of turkey. Everyone that has tried these has asked where I found the recipe and they rave about them. Absolutely delicious. I kept a couple in the freezer and grilled them 2 weeks later and they were just as good.
