bite inside turkey burger

Simple Turkey Burger Recipe

Prep: 5Cook: 10Total: 15 minutes
Yield 5 burgers 1x


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. In a bowl, combine turkey, garlic, and use a grater to shred onion into burger. This is a key step for creating juicy burgers. I use a box grater and finely grate the onion over the meat so all the juice goes in.
  2. Add oregano, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to mix!
  3. Form into patties, using 1/5 of the total meat depending on size you want. They will shrink once cooked.
  4. Heat a large cast-iron skillet with 2 tbsp avocado oil over medium heat, and once hot, add burgers.
  5. Cook for 5 minutes, flip, then turn the heat to medium low. Cover for the next 5 minutes so the inside cooks. Repeat until all burgers are cooked.
  6. Serve with onion, tomato, buns, or over lettuce! Enjoy!
