Pesto Turkey Burger

Before I talk about these amazing Burgers… I wanted to let everyone know that you can now find me on Facebook and on Twitter.  Actually, I’ve been on Twitter all along, but I finally got around to inserting the links on my webpage.  Click on the Facebook or the Twitter widgets and you’ll be on your way.  But don’t forget to post comments or send me emails through my blog either.  I will be on both!

OK!!!  In the mood for a burger but want to stray away from the ordinary beef burger?  I know that I love options and when I took out a package of ground turkey, I knew I had to make burgers. 

What I love about Turkey Burgers is that they are juicy, tender and flavourful.  And definitely not boring. 


Ingredients (this will make about 6 patties)

  • package of ground turkey
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 free-range egg

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl.  Use your hands to gently mix the ingredients together.  I find this part very therapeutic Laughing out loud.  Just make sure you don’t over mix it. 

Next, divide the mixture into 6 equally sized patties. 

Preheat your BBQ to medium heat.  Don’t forget to grease the grates so that the patties don’t stick when they go on the grill. 

You will want to grill the burgers on one side until they are brown, then flip them over.  It took about 5 minutes per side.  Just before they were done, I added a couple slices of my favourite cheese and melted it.  I also noticed that these patties shrunk a little bit, but thickened as they cooked.

Serve the burgers with whatever toppings and condiments that your heart desires. 


I served mine with one Tbsp. of pesto, 1/4 apple, spinach and a bit of mayonnaise (which exploded all over my burger as I opened the lid of the squeeze-bottle). 

Hope you enjoy your burgers! 

Question:  What is your favourite meal to BBQ during the summer ? Do you BBQ all year round?
