The Juiciest Turkey Burger Ever!

I know “juicy” and “turkey burger” don’t usually go in the same sentence, but I have defied the odds with this recipe! It is so juicy, it will make you forget that turkey burgers ever existed!

This dinner not only feeds 5 people, it is also a healthy option that is cheap! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did.

Lettuce Bun Option

Dad's Burger!

Mom's Burger!


Serves: 5


1 lb 85% Lean 15% Fat Ground Turkey

1/4 cup +1 tsp minced Vidalia onion (1/2 the onion)

1 tsp granulated garlic powder

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1 tsp salt

1/4 cup Plain Low-Fat Yogurt

1/2 tsp Generic Italian Seasoning (I used ShopRite Brand)

1/2 tbsp Honey Mustard

1/2 cup shredded carrots

1 egg

2 tbsp Italian style Bread crumbs that contain Romano Cheese

2 1/2 tbsp canola oil

Toppings/bun Options:

Thinly sliced red onion

Thinly sliced tomato

Bib lettuce cups

King Size Thomas’ English Muffins

Eggs for a sunny side up topping!

5 slices of your favorite cheese

Tzatziki sauce (I used Whole Foods Brand)

1/2 tbsp of butter or spray oil


1. In a medium sized bowl, using your hands, combine all of the items listed in "ingredients" besides the sliced cheese and oil.

2. Form 5 patties and place them on parchment paper or a plate. They will be slightly wet, so I would recommend the parchment paper.

3. Heat a large cast iron skillet with the canola oil over medium high heat. Carefully add the burgers and cook for 3 minutes or until golden brown on the first side. Flip the burgers, turn the heat down to medium and cook for an additional 6 min.

4. 2 minutes before you finish cooking the burgers, toast your english muffin (if using as the bun option) and cook your egg/eggs in a medium sized saucepan with 1/2 tbsp of butter or spray oil.

5. Add your cheese to the burgers (if desired) and place a lid on top of the pan (any lid will work) to melt the cheese (around 1 min of cooking time).

6. Assemble your burger with the toppings/buns that you would like! Serve immediately!
