With grilling season in full-swing, these turkey burgers deserve a spot at your next BBQ!
Turkey burgers often get a bad rap for being dry and flavorless. Usually to combat the dryness, I would add an egg to the patty mixture. The only problem? I found that unless I also added a bunch of bread crumbs, the patties would just fall apart – not ideal for grilling. These burgers are egg-free, yet remain moist thanks to the tomato paste (or ketchup, up to you), soy sauce, and worcestershire sauce. And the bread crumbs? Only 1/4 cup!
I first made these burgers last year at our housewarming (more like apartment-warming) party. We went from living in a 400 sq ft apartment that had only one closet in the whole place to an apartment twice the size that is in a facility with courtyards, grills, a pool, outdoor fireplaces, and a gym. Major step-up in life 😉 While the gym is awesome, as is having two closets, my favorite part is the outdoor space. There is nothing like coming home, grilling, and just hanging out on a warm summer night after a day of being cooped up in a hospital working.
In addition to these turkey burgers at our housewarming, we also served ahi tuna that Bry actually caught on a deep-sea fishing trip earlier that summer. While it’s hard to compete with freshly caught fish, these turkey burgers were still a hit! These burgers are so flavorful that I didn’t need anything more than a few slices of avocado on top to enjoy. However, Bry recommends serving them with a mixture of mayo and sriracha. Regardless of what condiment(s) you want, if you’re looking for a healthy option to bring to your next BBQ, make a batch of these turkey burgers – I promise they will be well-received!
