Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Beat the egg and onion together in a mixing bowl. Add the turkey, Italian bread crumbs, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix until evenly combined and form into 4 patties. Press each patty into the panko crumbs and set aside.

  • Cook the turkey burgers on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). While the burgers are cooking, brush the mushrooms with olive oil and cook on the grill along with the Canadian bacon. Just before the turkey burgers are done, top with the grilled Canadian bacon slices and the Gouda cheese. Cook until the cheese melts.

  • Spread the hamburger buns with mustard and mayonnaise. Place a turkey burger onto each bottom bun and top with the portobello mushroom slices. Sandwich with the remaining bun halves and serve.

This burger is simple to make yet loaded with flavor and has a gourmet taste. We had surprise dinner guests and I happen to have all of the ingredients in my pantry. The recipe is too good not to share! Read More

Rainy outside so I broiled instead of grilled used Havarti cheese instead of Gouda and they still came out well. My only critique would be the nutrition info. Wow...over 800 calories and 53 grams of fat for 1 burger. I was surprised... Read More

This recipe is fantastic. The flavor of the burgers are really five star. The second time I made it I did not include the mushroom or the canadian bacon and it was still perfect. Read More

I enjoyed these. The saltiness of the canadian bacon and the gouda went well with the turkey. I used a reduced fat gouda so it didn't melt as nicely but tasted great. Next time I'd leave off the panko and make 5 patties.. they were quite big Read More

To me an egg breadcrumbs and meat equals meatloaf which is not what I wanted so I left those two ingredients out. What was left was a wonderfully delicious turkey burger that my girls and I all enjoyed. Portobellos are always awesome on the grill and they really topped off these burgers beautifully. Thank you!!

tried the turkey burgers tonight and was very pleasantly surprised. Couldn't get my husband to try turkey burgers in the past but he really liked them. Just a tiny bit dry but that's probably true of turkey burgers period. The Panko bread crumbs - not sure they were needed. I went a little light on the liquid smoke just to make sure I would like it. Since I'm doing a diet - will do this recipe again and again. Read More

I made this for some of my friends in my little college apt. I was surprised how moist the burgers were even after i grilled them on a George Forman. I eliminated the liquid smoke and instead added some greek seasoning. It really made them taste great. Thanks for a wonderful easy recipe. Read More
