Tempting Turkey Burgers

These juicy burgers will have people believing you made them on the grill!
It cost me about $5 to make these burgers for a family of 5!

Onions, Olive Oil, Mushrooms

Essentials for Tenderness and Flavor

Salt 'N Pepper's Here!

Add Liquid Smoke for that fresh Grilled Taste

Add the Worcestershire Sauce

Add the Mustard

Add the Ketchup

Add the Oats (Sneak in fiber, stretch the burgers)

Whisk the Egg

Mix In the Beaten Egg

Formed Patty

Browning the Burgers

Plain burgers on toasted buns. The burn one is for Mom. Isn't that always the case?

Dressings: Sauteed Mushrooms & Onions, Sliced Jersey Tomatoes, Crisp Iceberg Lettuce, Dill Pickles, Sweet Peppers


1 lb. Ground Turkey
1 Egg
1 cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 tsp Liquid Smoke
fresh cracked Black Pepper to taste
pinch of salt (optional)
1 tsp Yellow Mustard
1/4 cup Ketchup

2 medium Yellow Onions (sliced)
1 container of White Button Mushrooms (sliced)
Olive Oil

Soft Burger Buns

Iceberg lettuce
Jersey tomatoes
Dill Pickle Slices


Lightly toast soft buns in toaster oven. Set Aside.

Slice tomatoes and prepare lettuce. Set Aside.

You may prepare the meat overnight if you desire.
Add salt, pepper, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 tsp liquid smoke, 1 tsp mustard, 1/4 cup ketchup, to ground turkey meat. Mix well.

Add 1 cup old fashioned oatmeal, and 1 lightly beaten egg to the bowl.
Mix well. Press patties. Set aside (refrigerate).

Slice Onions and Mushrooms. Saute in olive oil until tender and caramelized.
Remove from pan. Set Aside. Add more oil if necessary.

On Medium Heat, brown burgers on each side. The interior may still be pink.
If you leave the burgers in the pan they may burn because of the sugar from the ketchup. After burgers are browned, place them in the oven on 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.

Dress the burgers as desired.

Serve with seasoned french fries. Enjoy!
