The World’s Best Turkey Burgers!!

Posted on Updated on

These burgers are the best turkey burgers I have ever made.  There are several flavour variations which I have included.


Michele’s Turkey Burgers

1 pound ground turkey (or lean ground beef)

1/2 medium onion finely minced

1/2 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup 2% milk

1 cup cooked minced spinach well-drained

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

1 egg beaten

1 garlic clove minced finely

Mix oatmeal and milk and let sit for 10 minutes.  Make sure spinach is well-drained by squeezing out the excess water.  Once oatmeal has absorbed the milk, mix all ingredients with hands until just mixed.  Do not over mix.  Form into patties and put in fridge for 1 hour.  You can either grill these on medium heat on the BBQ or sauté until done in a pan.  These can also be baked in the oven as well.  Cook until meat thermometer registers 180 degrees F.

Thai Burger Variation (add the following)

1 green onion finely chopped

1 tsp grated lime peel

1 tsp finely minced hot chili pepper (or 1 tbsp sweet chili sauce)

Italian Burger Variation (add the following)

replace 1/2 cup cheddar with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp dried basil

Serve with tomato and lettuce

Lemon Dill Variation (add the following)

1 tsp fresh dill

1 tsp grated lemon peel

This burger variation is great served with Tatziki and sliced cucumber and tomato.

These burgers are low in fat, high in fibre and very moist and delicious.  They are good with a gluten-free bun or alone with a side salad.  Cheers, Michele
