Better Than Beef Turkey Burgers

Family Favorites


I had been looking for a recipe for a delicious, juicy turkey burger for a long time. By combining what I liked best from my 3 favorites I finally have a winning recipe. Cooked on the grill, even the most devoted beef burger fan will have to admit that these are fantastic.

4 large or 6 small burgers
10 Min
20 Min


1/3 c
uncooked oatmeal
1 1/4 lb
ground turkey
1 large
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
onion powder
1/4 tsp
1/4 tsp
black pepper
1/8 c
1 clove
finely chopped garlic
1 tsp


1Place all ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Mix until just incorporated.
2Form into 4 large patties or 6 small patties and place on squares of waxed paper. (Mixture will be very soft.)
3Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Please don't skip this step. This allows the oatmeal to hydrate and firms up the patties.
4Heat grill to medium. When hot, place patties on non-stick aluminum foil. Cook until deep grill marks form and then flip. Do not try to flip them sooner or they could break apart. Continue to cook on second side until you see nice, dark grill marks. Do not over cook. You want them to be moist. Only flip once.
5Remove from grill, cover with foil and let them rest for a few minutes while you toast the buns on the grill. Serve with lettuce, tomato, red onion, ketchup, mustard, mayo or Thousand Island dressing.
