Recently, I came across a pin of a turkey burger recipe that caught my eye.
It linked to a recipe site who did give credit to the site Use Real Butter.
I have been peeking at Use Real Butter for years and love her contemporary approach to using ingredients that are seasonal in nature and she has a fantastic database of recipes.
If you are looking for something interesting to grill this weekend, give her turkey burgers a shot-
You won't be disappointed!

Easy Turkey Burger Recipe
My favorite turkey burger recipe is so simple.
Since ground turkey is basically a blank canvas the challenge is how best to infuse some flavor into the meat.
People often ask me how to make ground turkey burger meat taste flavorful?
I make ground turkey meat taste flavorful by adding a packet of ranch dressing mix to the meat before grilling.
Ranch salad dressing mix is full of herbs and has a pungent flavor from the buttermilk powder.
The balance of the dried herbs and tangy dairy flavors works so well with the lean ground turkey meat.
Some other things you could mix in with ground turkey meat to make it delicious would be:
- Onion soup mix
- Dried jalapeno's and onions
- Smoked paprika
- Cumin and coriander
- Sweet chili sauce
- Sundried tomato puree
- Diced hatch chili peppers
- Worcestershire sauce
- Your favorite barbecue sauce
Sometimes we forget how easy a turkey burger can be to make on the grill. Using a charcoal grill like the Big Green Egg or Kamado Joe add's additional smoky flavor from the open fire cooking.
- 1 pound ground turkey meat
- 1 packet ranch dressing mix
- Mix the ground turkey and ranch dressing mix
- Grill the burgers over raised direct heat at about 400F flipping frequently until done, about 5 minuites
Turkey burger is a very lean meat so you should always consider using a good quality meat thermometer to make sure it's cooked safely and properly.
