Yummy Turkey Burgers

I've been wanting to try ground turkey for some time now but having no experience in cooking it, I've been reluctant to buy it until a few weeks ago. My hubby is really into making good, tasty beef burgers so we thought we'd try making turkey burgers for dinner today. The meat is not at all like beef, it feels a little sticky and of course when done, it turns white instead of brown. I found a recipe online that took just a few minutes to prepare, it was really easy. We usually throw the patties on the grill but since it was raining today we decided to cook them on our cast iron grill instead. I have to say, we were pleasantly surprised with the outcome. "They came out so yummy" as my dear daughter said. You can click on the link above to go to the direct page where I found the recipe or just read below. Let me know if you decide to try it and what you think.


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten (optional)
  • 6 hamburger buns, split


  1. In a large bowl, mix the turkey with the onion soup mix, pepper, garlic powder, soy sauce, and egg. Refrigerate the mixture about 10 minutes, then form into 6 patties.
  2. Preheat the grill for medium-high heat.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the patties on the grill. Cook for 20 minutes, turning once, or until well done. The inside of the burgers will look whitish in color when cooked through. Serve on buns.
