Recipe Spotlight: Seasoned Turkey Burgers

I got to make dinner again last night!

We had some ground turkey in the fridge, and since we’re working on thinning it out before vacation, we pulled it out and decided to get creative. I really wanted to make turkey burgers, since summer is here and nothing says summer to me like having burgers outside with good friends.

We decided on this recipe because we already had all the ingredients on hand, and didn’t feel like going to the store. Plus it looked super delicious! (Spoiler alert: they’re delicious.)

Here’s what you’ll need to make 6 servings.

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten (optional)
  • 6 hamburger buns, split (you can DEFINITELY use whole wheat buns, or skip the bun entirely.)
So here we go.
  • In a large bowl, mix the turkey with the onion soup mix, pepper, garlic powder, soy sauce, and egg.

This is what the mixture looks like before the egg.

  • Refrigerate the mixture about 10 minutes,
  • Form into 6 even sized patties.
  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
  • Lightly oil a broil pan. Place the patties on the pan. Cook for 6 minutes on each side, flipping once, or until well done. The inside of the burgers will look whitish in color when cooked through. Serve on buns with toppings of your choosing. I used cucumber, romaine lettuce, jalapenos and a little bit of ketchup.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!
