I LOVE a good burger. Juicy, flavorful and cooked with some sear on the outside is my favorite way to enjoy them.
When a farmer friend asked me if I had a good Ground Turkey Burger recipe I had to scratch my head.
No, I didn’t.
To be honest, I never had much success making turkey burgers but I was certainly up for the challenge.
After some trial and error, I’m proud to say I developed a recipe that would rival a beef burger any day of the week!
Want to know my secret?? Well, I remembered my Grandma teaching me to sear the patty, first, in an oiled skillet and, second, finishing in the oven.
Voila! It did the trick.
This burger is MOIST (sorry to the haters of that word) and delicious. And, did I mention that it’s easy to make???
- 1 lb Ground Turkey
- 1/2 Onion, diced
- 3 Tbsp Ketchup
- 1 Tbsp Mustard
- Dash Hot sauce
- 1 Egg, Whole
- 3/4 cup Breadcrumbs
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- A Few Spritz Cooking Oil Spray such as grapeseed
- Heat over to 375 degrees Combine all ingredients (aside from Cooking Spray) in bowl and mix well with hands. Shape into 4 Patties.
- Spritz a few sprays cooking oil spray into cast iron skillet and heat on medium-high. When skillet is warm, add all 4 patties and switch heat to medium-low. Cook on first side for 6 minutes; flip and continue to cook for 2 more minutes.
- Finish in 375 degree oven for 15 minutes or to desired doneness.
- Dress burger and Enjoy!
