  • Pan
  • Bowl


  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup Seasoned breadcrumbs
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Buns


  • Mince the parsley and garlic.
  • Combine the turkey, egg, bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, and onion powder in a large bowl.
  • Mix well then divide into four equal portions and shape into 1/2 inch thick patties with dampened hands.
  • Add the oil to a large pan over medium heat then add the patties and cook on each side for about 4 minutes or until cooked through (internal temperature of 160F).
  • Serve on buns with your choice of toppings.



  • Dampen your hands with cold water before shaping the patties to stop them from sticking to your hands.
  • You can chill the burgers in the fridge until you are ready to cook them.
  • Make sure your skillet is nice and hot before frying so you get that delicious sear on the burger.
  • If you're not sure that your burgers are cooked all the way through you can use a meat thermometer to check that the meat reaches 165F.
  • If you want to cook these burgers on the outside grill make sure to preheat the grill and brush the patties with olive oil so they don't stick. I also recommend chilling the burger so they firm up until you are ready to cook them.
  • Toppings - here are some delicious toppings you might want to try; pickles, tomato, lettuce, red onion, avocado, Jalapeno, mustard, ketchup, BBQ sauce, cheese, garlic mayo, relish.
  • If you want to add melted cheese add a slice on the burger 5 minutes before the end of cooking so the cheese melts.
  • For a lower-carb option, you can serve these with lettuce buns instead of bread.
  • These burgers are best served immediately when they are extra juicy.
  • Storage - cooked burgers will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge or can be frozen. Thaw before reheating.
  • Nutritional information does not include the bun.
