How to Form a Turkey Burger Patty
The perfect burger lies in your hands
Making burgers from scratch can seem like a daunting task, but it’s easier than you’d think. Here are some quick and easy steps for forming a turkey burger patty.
STEP 1: Start with Ground Turkey
Ground turkey is a great substitute for ground beef.
STEP 2: Add seasonings and fillers as desired.
Open the package and put the ground turkey in a bowl. Then add ingredients to:
• Keep your burgers from falling apart. We recommend adding a raw egg and a handful of breadcrumbs.
• Boost flavor. Add your favorite seasonings to kick up flavor. See our favorites here.
• Make a juicier turkey burger. Adding sautéed onions or oil can make for a juicier burger. Get more tips for grilling a juicy turkey burger here.
STEP 3: Mix ingredients
Take off your rings, wash your hands and dig in. Mix the ingredients, but don’t over mix the ground meat, which can make it dense and tough.
STEP 4: Form ½ inch thick patties
Use your hands to form patties.
STEP 5: Add a dimple to the middle of your patty
