Thanks to Harris Teeter, ground turkey was Buy One Get One free a few weeks ago so I could get two packs for around $4. I had been wanting to make a turkey burger for a while now, and since the meat was so cheap now was the perfect time! This is a very basic recipe, so feel free to add whatever fixins you like! I used a fresh bun from the bread department at the store and toasted it with a little butter on it. I pan fried these, but they can also be cooked on the grill.
Ingredients (Adapted from All Recipes)
1 lb ground turkey
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon ranch dressing
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- In a large bowl, mix the turkey with the onion powder, pepper, garlic powder, and soy sauce. Refrigerate the mixture about 10 minutes, then form into 6 patties
- Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the patties and cook over medium heat without moving them until the bottom of each is dark brown and crusted, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip burgers; continue to cook 3 to 4 minutes longer. Reduce the heat to low, position the cover slightly ajar on the pan to allow steam to escape, and continue to cook for 8 to 10 minutes longer, flipping once if necessary. (Adapted from Serious Eats)
- Top burger with tablespoon of ranch dressing, shredded cheese, salt to taste, and desired fixins.
