How To Make Turkey Burgers

Serves 4

What You Need


·        2/3 cup fresh breadcrumbs, or 2 slices white sandwich bread bread (about 1 ounce)
·        1/2 cup whole-milk plain Greek yogurt
·        1/4 cup finely chopped shallot (from 1 large shallot)
·        tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
·        teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
·        cloves garlic, grated or minced
·        1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
·        teaspoon chili powder
·        1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
·        1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
·        1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
·        1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
·        pound ground turkey (93% lean/7% fat)
·        tablespoons olive oil
·        slices cheese (optional)

·        Measuring cups and spoons
·        Large bowl
·        Plate
·        Cast iron pan
·        Spatula


1.     Make the breadcrumbs and make the panade. If using slices of bread, tear into pieces and pulse in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment into coarse breadcrumbs. Place the breadcrumbs in a large bowl, add the yogurt, and mix to combine.
2.     Flavor the panade. Add the shallot, Worcestershire, soy sauce, garlic, black pepper, chili powder, cumin, mustard, salt, and cayenne pepper. Stir to combine.
3.     Mix in the turkey by hand. Add the turkey and use your fingers to combine the meat and flavorings. Handle the meat gently and do not overmix, as this can make the burger tough.
4.     Form into patties. Divide the mixture into 4 (6-ounce) portions. Form each a patty about 1-inch thick and 3 1/2-inches wide. Place on a plate or baking sheet. Press your thumb into the center of each patty to create a shallow dimple. This will keep the burger from bulging in the center as it cooks. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
5.     Heat the oven. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 375°F.
6.     Cook the burgers. Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the burgers and cook undisturbed until a golden-brown crust forms on the bottoms, about 3 minutes. Flip the burgers with a flat spatula. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the burgers reach an internal temperature of 160°F, 5 to 7 minutes more.
7.     Rest the burgers. Top each burger with 1 slice of cheese if desired. Rest for 5 minutes.
8.     Assemble the burgers. Assemble the burgers on hamburger buns with desired toppings. 

Recipe Notes

Storage: Refrigerate leftover patties, tightly wrapped, for up to 3 days.
Gilling Instructions: Grill over medium-high heat until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. The burgers should reach an internal temperature of 160°F.
