1 lb
ground turkey
1/2 tsp
1 tsp
pepper (i use cracked black pepper)
1 tsp
garlic powder
3 dash(es)
poultry seasoning (i use bell's)
1/2 c
oatmeal, uncooked (i use old-fashioned)
2 Tbsp
wheat germ
2/3 c
chicken broth, low salt
1/2 tsp
unflavored gelatin
1 Tbsp
butter, unsalted (optional, for sauteing)


1In a glass measuring cup, dissolve the gelatin into the chicken broth. It will set up while you mix the other ingredients.
2In a 2 qt. bowl, add the remaining ingredients. Lightly stir to combine. Add the gelatin mixture. (You might need a small spatula to get it out of the cup.) Stir to combine all ingredients.
3Wet your hands and shape the meat into burgers. You can make 4 large or 6 medium size burgers. Place the burgers on a parchment-lined plate. Cover and chill for a minimum of 30 minutes.
4To cook the burgers, you have several options: broil, saute or grill. I sauteed these in 1 T butter over medium heat for about 8 minutes a side.
To broil, Place on broiler pan and broil about 6-8 minutes a side.
To grill, cook til meat reaches an internal temp. of 165 degrees.
5Notes: You can substitute an egg for the chicken broth/gelatin mixture.
