These burgers are designed to be enjoyed just like a classic beef burger, on a bun with your favorite toppings. No surprise veggies snuck in here, unlike my yummy Turkey Zucchini Burgers or Turkey Broccoli Rabe Burgers (those are delicious too, by the way!).


  • 1 lb ground turkey (93% lean)
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (whole wheat or gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup dried onion flakes
  • 1 tbsp each: ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Olive oil spray
  • Burger buns (4)
  • Your favorite toppings (cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce, pickles, etc.) – optional


  1. Mix ground turkey, breadcrumbs, onion flakes, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Form 4 patties, about ½ inch thick.
  3. Stovetop: Heat a skillet over medium-low heat, spray with oil. Cook burgers 4-5 minutes per side or until browned and cooked through (165°F).
  4. Grill: Preheat grill to medium, cook burgers 5 minutes per side or until cooked through (165°F).
  5. Air Fryer: Cook burgers at 400°F for 4-5 minutes per side.
  6. Toast buns if desired.
  7. Serve burgers on buns with your favorite toppings.


Turkey burgers can stick to the grill. To prevent this:

  • Preheat grill for a hot sear.
  • Oil the grates.
  • Don’t move burgers too soon (5-6 minutes).
  • Use a wide spatula to flip.
