The Right Way to Make Turkey Burgers

A while ago, I showed you how NOT to make turkey burgers.  Thanks to my incredibly sweet and adorable boyfriend, I now have photos to show you the right way to make turkey burgers.  San knew I have had a lot on my plate with school and work lately, so he made turkey burgers and took photos of the process just like I do and told me I could use them when I didn’t have the time or energy to make a weekly meal with all the stuff I have going on.  Now isn’t that sweet?  Man, I’m a lucky girl!

I feel bad leaving you all with the wrong way to make these, so I don’t want to dilly dally around – you need to know the right way because these are amazing.


  • 1 lb of ground turkey breast (preferably Jennie-O which is pictured – it’s not as sticky as other brands)
  • Any seasoning you think would taste good.  San used:
    • Kosher salt
    • Honey chipotle barbecue sauce
    • Mrs. Dash southwest chipotle seasoning
    • Black pepper
    • Garlic powder
  • Any kind of sliced cheese
  • Any kind of bread or bun
  • Any vegetable (San used a mix of lettuce and spinach and tomatoes which are not pictured)


Start by taking the thawed ground turkey and adding all of the seasonings.

Then mix it all together well and separate into four patties (or however many you want depending on the thickness). Cook them on a skillet or on the grill for a few minutes on each side until the outside is slightly browned.

Add a slice of cheese and let it melt. Place the burger on a bun or regular or toasted bread and add the toppings.

And voila!

Now, that is definitely the right way to make these – I’m drooling!  I am telling you, these are amazing and so much healthier than ground beef, as long as you buy ground turkey breast.  It’s a little more expensive, but just as tasty if you add some low-calorie flavoring and add some love into the mix.  You won’t be sorry!

I hope this guide has served a better purpose than the last one of how not to make turkey burgers.  I’m ready for a long summer of eating these at least every other week mixed with jalapenos and all sorts of goodies!
