- 1 pound of ground turkey
- 4 whole-grain buns
- 4 tablespoons of seasoned breadcrumbs
- tablespoons of onion (diced)
- 2 tablespoons of parsley (chopped)
- 4 slices of tomato
- 4 slices of red onion
- 2 lettuce leaves (halved)
- 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon of your favorite hot sauce
- 4 tablespoons of ketchup
- Salt & pepper (to taste)
To begin on your grilled turkey burger recipe, use a large bowl to mix together the ground turkey, seasoned bread crumbs, parsley, chopped onion, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce. My wife prefers fresh bread crumbs although I like them dry. Mix well and divide the mixture into four equal portions. Form these portions into patties.
Use a charcoal grill to prepare a hot fire. Alternatively, you can use a gas grill which is how I often do it. If you have a George Foreman grill - even better.
Lightly coat your cooking surface with Pam or a similar spray, away from your heat source. Place your cooking rack about five inches away from the heat.
Next, grill your burgers until they are browned well on both sides. I normally do mine for about seven minutes on each side to ensure that they are heated through.
You may then serve your turkey burgers on buns topped with one slice of tomato, onion, half a lettuce leaf, along with a dollop of ketchup. If you feel that you require more enhancements, you may add a 1/2 cup of finely chopped red bell pepper like my wife does.
