Turkey Burgers 2 Different Ways

Prep Time


Prep Notes

Turkey burgers are a really easy to prepare for a weeknight meal especially because they can be prepared the day before. In fact, they taste better because all the flavors from spices and meet have a chance to combine well.

Sharing 2 different styles here, ingredients different but grilling is the same!

Cooking Time



Traditional Turkey Burgers

1.3 lbs of turkey meat (1 package)

1/2 -1 tsp of pink salt

1/2 tsp of garlic salt

1/2 tsp of red paprika

1 shallot (minced)

Mexican Style Turkey Burgers

1.3 lbs of turkey meat

1/2 tsp of cumin

1/2 tsp of chili powder

1/2 tsp of garlic poweder

1/2 -1 tsp of salt 


For both versions, combine all ingredients and form burger patties. If time allows, let it stand for at least 1 hour on the room temperature before grilling. You can also refrigerate overnight.

It is really important not to overcook turkey meat since it is by nature dry already. I usually grill on the first side the longest and then after its flipped, maybe another 3 min.

Serve in a bun, wrap or romaine lettuce. Try my delicious Greek yogurt spread with this, the flavors go so well! 


I hope you love these as much as I do. If you make them let me know!
