My Parmesan Turkey Burgers are one of my favorite go-to weeknight meals. They are super easy to make, and so much leaner than a traditional beef burger. You can also play around with adding in sautéed veggies or fresh herbs. One of my favorite add ins is a mixture of sautéed mushrooms and red peppers.
Here is what you will need:
- 1 pound lean ground turkey
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup of panko breadcrumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Yield: 4 large burgers or 6 slider size burgers
Step 1: Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and use your hands to mix everything together until well combined. Shape into patties, and prep your grill. I usually make these on my gas grill, prepped with a bit of grilling spray, on medium heat. You could also make them in a non-stick skillet coated well with cooking spray.
Step 2: Grill your burgers until cooked through - I usually go with 4 minutes per side.
Step 3: Adorn your burgers with your favorite toppings and bun selections and enjoy!
