Grilled Turkey Burger Recipe

Let's dive into the juicy details, shall we?


  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 4 whole-grain buns
  • 4 tablespoons of seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Tablespoons of diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
  • 4 slices of fresh tomato
  • 4 slices of zesty red onion
  • 2 lettuce leaves, halved
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of your favorite hot sauce
  • 4 tablespoons of good ol' ketchup
  • Salt & pepper to taste


First things first, grab a large bowl and throw in that ground turkey, seasoned breadcrumbs, parsley, chopped onion, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix it all up until you've got a flavorful medley. I personally don't mind dry breadcrumbs, but if you're feeling fancy, fresh ones work too. Shape your mixture into four equal patties – this is where the magic begins.

Now, fire up your grill – whether it's charcoal, gas, or even a George Foreman grill, the choice is yours. Make sure it's nice and hot. I usually keep mine around 5 inches away from the heat source. Lightly spray your cooking surface with Pam or a similar spray (safety first!), and place those patties on the grill.

Grill those babies for about seven minutes on each side until they're beautifully browned and cooked through. You want to be sure not to overdo it, especially with turkey, as it can dry out if you're not careful.

Once your patties are perfection on a bun, top 'em with a slice of juicy tomato, zesty red onion, and half a crisp lettuce leaf. And of course, a generous dollop of ketchup – because what's a burger without ketchup, right?

Feeling adventurous? My wife likes to jazz hers up with a 1/2 cup of finely chopped red bell pepper. Feel free to get creative and add your own unique twist to these delightful turkey burgers.

In just 30 minutes, you'll have a delicious, healthy burger ready to impress your taste buds. So go ahead, fire up that grill, and enjoy your culinary masterpiece. Stay tuned for more scrumptious burger ideas coming your way! Happy grilling! 🍔
