These moist, flavorful turkey burgers will allow you to satisfy your burger craving without having to eat red meat.
  • 1.25 lbs ground turkey
  • A couple splashes of Tabasco sauce
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1-2 Tbsp feta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp shredded Mozzarella, Cheddar or Jack cheese
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1-2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • *For a spicier version add 1-2 tsp chopped jalapeño or serrano peppers
  • Hamburger Buns
Topping Ideas
  • Avocado slices or guacamole
  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • Dijon mustard
  • Sautéed mushrooms
  • Sautéed purple onions
  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and form patties.
  2. Cook the patties on the stove top, broil them in the oven or grill them on the BBQ.
  3. In the oven and on the stove top it took about 5 minutes on each side but cook time will vary depending on the thickness of the burger.
  4. Melt a slice of cheese on top of the meat if desired.
  5. Lightly toast the buns on the grill or in the oven. I like melting the cheese on both halves of the bun rather than on the meat.
  6. Top with the ingredients and condiments of your choice.
  7. Serve the avocado turkey burgers with pasta salad or potato salad for the quintessential summer meal.
