“Burgers are easy to make with just a few easy steps. You can make it into any size you want and it goes well with any toppings like onions, tomatoes, etc. Everybody loves turkey burgers!”

Jarvis L. Boyd, Jr.

1 lb. ground turkey
1–2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper

  1. In a mixing bowl, gently knead together turkey, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Don’t overwork the meat.
  2. Form into patties about ¼ to ½ inch thick. Press your thumb down on the middle to give it a slight indent.
  3. Heat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat (400–450°F). Make sure the grate is well oiled so the meat doesn’t stick.
  4. Cook on the heated grill until burgers reach an internal temperature of 160°F, flipping one half-way through.
  5. Let rest 5 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
