Juicy, delicious, lightly seasoned and grilled turkey burgers.
What's better in the summer (or any time for that matter) than a good old hamburger? When cooked to perfection, a burger is one of life's great All-American pleasures.
And as much as I love (and I mean really, really love) beef, I know that it's not the healthiest thing for me. So every once in a while we switch our beef burgers for turkey. And they've mostly been pretty good.
However, you probably know that they can usually be somewhat dry, but I just wrote that off as the ground turkey having little to no fat. That is, until I came up with this recipe!
This has to be the ultimate ground turkey burger. It's flavorful and moist. It holds its shape well and is just excellent. The Gruyere cheese, green onions, and Dijon mustard in the mixture not only make it tasty, but they keep it nicely moist as well.
How to Make Turkey Burgers
Place the ground turkey, gruyere cheese, green onions, bread crumbs, dijon mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix together using a fork rather than your hands to help keep the mixture from becoming too compressed.
Form into four patties. Note: this makes four very large patties.
Cook over medium-high heat (either on a grill or in a saute pan) approximately 6 minutes on the first side. Flip the patties and finish cooking until internal temperature reaches 170 on a meat thermometer.
Serve on toasted buns with your condiments of choice. I used mayonnaise, catsup, lettuce and tomato slices. You already have the cheese and mustard inside the burger!
