A delicious new spin on a burger, perfect for a summer bbq or tailgating! Even turkey burger skeptics will enjoy. I like to serve with baked sweet potato chips.

Instructions Checklist

  • Mix turkey, 1/4 cup barbeque sauce, green onion, oil, chili powder, and cumin together in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.

  • Grill patties on the preheated grill until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Serve each burger on a bun and smother each burger with remaining barbeque sauce.

I thought these were okay but was surprised the bbq sauce flavor didn't really come through. It also changes the texture some which I didn't love. Only change I made was subbing 2 Tblsp of very finely minced yellow onion for the green. I used Guy Fieri brown sugar bourbon bbq sauce I had leftover from another recipe. I shaped them using a mashed potato scoop and got 8 smaller burgers. To save time I also broiled them. I thought they would have been good with some garlic so I just sprinkled some garlic salt on top after they were done. That helped some. For a quick and easy complete meal I served them with Ore Ida baked tater tots. Read More

Pretty much followed the recipe except for omitting the oil & adding a half cup bread crumbs to help bind them. They smelled pretty good before cooking but tastewise after just okay. No big deal. 'Couldn't really tell I'd used barbecue at all - & it was spicy. It definitely improved the flavor when put on the burgers but ho-hum without. Maybe dry rub spices would be a better option. Read More

Giving this three stars because I like the flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and these burgers didn't hold together. They were soft and fell apart when I tried to flip them. Wound up just putting the cooked ground turkey on a bun like sloppy joes. Read More
