Simple {but delicious} turkey burgers!


  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon each, salt & pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon each, garlic powder and onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon each, olive oil AND butter
  • 4 slices American cheese (or whatever cheese you like!)
  • burger toppings of your choice: pickles, lettuce, tomato, onion, etc
  • 4 hamburger buns


  1. Place ground turkey into a large bowl with egg, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and onion powder.  Stir to combine but taking care not to over mix. The mixture will be wet but once it starts cooking, the egg will help hold it’s shape together!
  2. Preheat indoor griddle to medium high heat. You could easily use a large sauté pan on the cooktop but I prefer my electric griddle for this.
  3. Divide meat into 4 even patties.
  4. Melt the butter and olive oil on the griddle. Place each burger down onto the olive oil/butter. Cook about 4 minutes per side or until browned and completely cooked through. Top each burger with a slice of cheese and then place a large pot lid on top of the burgers to help melt the cheese a little faster- this usually takes under a minute.
  5. Remove burgers and place onto buns. Top with any desired toppings and condiments and serve. I like ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles!
