Turkey Burger Ingredients
The full recipe is at the bottom of this page, but here's a quick overview of what you'll need & how to make it in 2 simple steps:
- 1 pound lean ground turkey
- ½ cup panko breadcrumbs (or plain breadcrumbs)
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder

- 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
How to Make Turkey Burgers
Step 1: Make the Patties
Add all of the ingredients except for 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a large bowl. Use your hands to mix all of the ingredients until combined. Divide the turkey into 4 equal portions and press into patties that are about ½” thick.
Step 2: Cook the Patties
In a large skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add 2 of the patties side by side (or cook 1 patty at a time if your pan is smaller).
Cook the patties for 4 - 5 minutes on each side, until they are cooked through (to at least 165 °F) and browned. Repeat with the remaining patties, adding 1 tablespoon more of oil to the pan before cooking.
Serve warm on a bun with all of your favorite burger fixings!
How to Store Leftovers
In the fridge: cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 - 4 days.
In the freezer: cool and freeze in an airtight container for 3 - 4 months. Wrap individual burgers in plastic wrap or store separately to prevent them from sticking together.
How to Know If Your Turkey Burgers Are Cooked
These burgers take about 4 - 5 minutes on each side to cook through. They should be browned on the outside and, when cut open, no pink should be left in the middle. You can also insert a thermometer (put it into the thickest part of the burger) and it should read 165°F.Print
