Turkey Burgers

Juicy Turkey Burgers

I love turkey burgers but finding one that is delicious and juicy is harder than you’d expect! Most versions turn out too dry or mushy but not Barb’s.

Barb and I have been friends for years. Within months of meeting her, Barb would share print-outs of her favorite, tried and true recipes. I came to love these little print-outs, as it reminded me of recipes family members have shared in the past. This turkey burger recipe was written on a yellow sticky note and everyone who has tried it will attest – it’s a keeper!

YIELD: 6 Burgers

PREP TIME: 20 Minutes

TOTAL TIME: 30 Minutes

Prep the Burgers

  • 2 packages of organic ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup of panko
  • 1/2 cup of grated zucchini
  • 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp of sriracha mayo
  • 1 handful of freshly chopped Italian parsley
  • 1 tsp of garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup of grated cheese
  • salt and pepper


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Careful not to overmix!
  2. Loosely form meat mixture into fist size meat balls. Set aside on a platter for grilling.
  3. Prep all of your delicious burger toppings and sauces. Set aside.
  4. Preheat iron skillet or griddle.
  5. Using melted butter, lightly brush your brioche buns and grill on a heated skillet until golden. Set aside.
  6. Place your burger balls on the hot griddle. Using a spatula, smash the burgers down to flatten to 1/3 inch patties. Edges will not be uniform. Make sure there is plenty of space between your patties.
  7. Cook for about 2-3 minutes until the edges start to crisp up and burger is about 2/3 of the way cooked.
  8. Flip the burger and finish cooking about 1-2 minutes more.
  9. Turkey burgers should be cooked all the way through, no pinkness.
  10. Transfer your delicious patties to one of your golden buns. Top with all the fixings!
  11. Enjoy!
