Moist Turkey Burgers


I changed the recipe to make these deliciously juicy turkey burgers for more people. I caramelized the onions to give them more depth of flavor. I also added Dijon mustard and real garlic instead of garlic powder. I also cut down on the amount of bread crumbs and made them out of whole wheat bread to make them a little healthier. I also omitted the soy sauce for the same reason. They came out great. The only thing I would do differently next time is to give them just a little heat.

Total Time:
1 hrs


  • 3 ½ teaspoons olive oil

  • 2 ⅓ cups finely chopped onions

  • 1 slice whole wheat bread, chopped into crumbs

  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 ½ tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 ¾ teaspoons poultry seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 3 ½ pounds lean ground turkey

  • nonstick cooking spray


  1. Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onions in the hot oil until tender and lightly browned, about 15 minutes; transfer to a large bowl.

  2. Add bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, garlic, poultry seasoning, ground mustard, pepper, and salt to onions in the bowl; mix well. Add ground turkey, broken up into smaller pieces; mix everything together until evenly combined. Shape turkey mixture into 12 patties; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

  3. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat.

  4. Cook patties in the hot skillet until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
