  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a glass baking dish with aluminum foil.
  2. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Combine cooked quinoa, onion mixture, 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce, eggs, barbeque sauce, hot sauce, seasoned salt, and black pepper in a large bowl. Whisk together. Add ground turkey and mix well with hands. Form patties and place in the prepared baking dish.
  5. Mix remaining 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar together in a bowl to make a paste. Spoon on top of the patties.
  6. Bake patties in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 35 to 45 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can form large patties for regular burgers or small patties for sliders; they do not shrink or expand.
  • I love to pre-make these burgers in the morning and then just pop them in the oven when I get home from work. They go great with red onion, tomato, iceberg lettuce, mustard, and a slice of pickle! You can even make them into sliders as an appetizer!

I did not make any changes except to only add one tablespoon of the hot sauce, and my family loved these turkey burgers I was surprised they didn't fall apart because forming the patties was di...

The whole family loved this - patties were more wet than I thought they should be - but when they cooked up they were fantastic!

I loved these. Easy to make and delicious.. do make extra of the sauce to drizzle on the burger after cooking
