Turkey Burgers

  • Yield: 8 burgers
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Difficulty:  Easy

For Turkey Patties:

  •  1 lb Ground Turkey
  • Salt/pepper – to taste
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Worchestershire
  • ¼ Cup Green chili hot salsa
  • 1 tbsp Horseradish
  • 1 tbsp Dijon
  • 1 finely chopped Shallot
  • 2 finely chopped cloves, Garlic
  • ½ tsp Celery salt
  • Freshly grated Nutmeg – to taste
  • 1 tsp dried parsley

For Burgers/assembly:

  • 8 Pretzel buns
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • ¼ Cup Mayo
  • ¼ Cup mustard
  • 1 medium Shallot
  • 8 slices Tomato,
  • shredded lettuce


Mix all turkey patty ingredients together in a large mixing bowl (for best results, use your CLEAN hands).  Use a 1/4Cup measure cup to scoop out even sized patties, they will be kind of small, but remember its turkey which is very lean so they won’t really ‘shrink’.  Shape out into patties (you can use a cookie mold, or ring mold for even shaped patties),  and let rest on parchment paper or even paper towel, as they’ll be pretty wet.  Grill on med-hi heat.  Before you put them on the grill, make sure you put a little olive oil on the grill, as turkey is very lean and will stick otherwise.

In a blender or food processor puree a shallot, some mayo and some mustard for a yummy sauce (do it to taste, some like mayo better than mustard and vice versa)
