Turkey Burgers Recipe


Makes 4 Burgers

  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup very finely minced red or yellow onion
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 burger buns (optional)
  • mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, lettuce, onion, tomato, pickle


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°f or preheat the broiler (this is for the buns)
  2. Break the egg into a medium-large bowl and beat lightly with a fork
  3. Add the onion, salt, and about 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and mix well
  4. Add the turkey and mix lightly but thoroughly, using your hands
  5. Rinse your hands, wet them with cold water, and gently form 4 patties, each about ½-inch thick
  6. Place a large (10-to 12-inch) heavy skillet over medium heat
  7. After about a minute, add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and swirl to coat the pan
  8. Place the turkey burgers in the pan and cook, undisturbed, for 4 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom
  9. Use a metal spatula to carefully loosen each burger and flip it over, adding a little more oil if the pan seems dry
  10. Cook on the second side for about 4 minutes, or until the undersides are nicely browned
  11. Meanwhile, split the buns, put them on a baking sheet, cut side up, and heat them in the oven or slide them under the broiler to toast the cut sides
  12. Watch carefully so they don’t burn
  13. Spread the cut sides of the buns with some of your chosen condiments (the spreadable ones), put a burger patty on each bun bottom, and top with your other selected condiments (the sliced items) and a bun top
  14. Serve right away
