Actually good turkey burgers

This dish hails from

Although I love my Greek-style turkey burgers, this is a super flavorful, more traditional alternative.


  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 2 tsp Italian-style breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp finely diced onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • egg white, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp fresh parsley
  • pinch of salt and black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • oil for cooking burgers
  • 2 Kaiser or hamburger rolls
  • toppings and dressing (not pictured)*

*I use lettuce and tomato, with mayonnaise mixed with Dijon mustard at a 2:1 ratio.


Mix turkey, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, egg white, parsley, salt and pepper, and Worcestershire sauce together in a large bowl. Form into 2 patties.


Cook burgers in oil in a medium sized skillet over medium-high heat (I’ve read this recipe doesn’t do well on the grill). Cook about 4 minutes on each side, or until inside temperature reaches 180 degrees F.

Serve on toasted rolls with preferred toppings and enjoy.


Makes 2 servings.
