Another weekend has come and gone & I have whipped up another delicious, savory, & healthy meal for y’all! I have to tell you, I love sharing recipes with y’all. I feel like it’s a great way to start the week. I think y’all will really love this one! Who doesn’t love burgers? There are SO many different condiments, veggies & meats you can add onto them. And it’s so easy to make them a healthy meal!
I like to get all of my ingredients totally ready and measured out before I start mixing and making the patties. I feel it’s better that way because you’re working with raw meat & it saves you a little time 🙂
Here’s what you’re gonna need
Shredded pepperjack cheese
Onion soup mix
Your favorite veggies
*Not pictured- an egg & breadcrumbs if needed*
First you’ll want to get out your handy dandy mixing bowl, & throw in your turkey, seasonings, cheese & worcestershire sauce. The onion soup mix really adds such a savory bite to these patties. I got the idea from my momma, & I can’t make burgers without it now!
Then it’s time to get those hands dirty! Put some muscle into. Actually you won’t really need muscle, but make sure you really get in there & mix it together until it’s combined well.
This next part may not be necessary for you. If you are using regular ground beef, you won’t have to add these ingredients. Ground turkey can sometimes be a little more fragile in that your patties can easily fall apart without some binding ingredients. I went ahead and added an egg & some breadcrumbs I had on hand.
They helped so much! My patties definitely would have been “dead meat” if I didn’t add them in 😉
Once you get your meat mixed up well, you can start forming your patties. I got out a sheet pan & laid down a sheet of parchment paper [which helps with the sticking]. I would say about 3/4-1 cup of meat to form a patty. Make sure to pack them together tight when forming your patty, it will help them stay together as well.
Once again, I’m not the griller in the fam. This is when I hand them over to my awesome hubby. He loves to grill so we are the perfect pair 🙂
Love watching my hubby grill….also, Go ‘Boys!
While the burgers are grilling away, get your veggies cut up. I chose to do onions, lettuce & tomatoes. But literally anything would be good on these! Avocados, jalepenos, spinach, anything! The onions really compliment the meat as well with the onion soup mix.
The color of these patties is really beautiful when they are done.
One of the patties did fall apart a little bit. Turkey is just a little harder to grill. If anyone has a secret to making sure these puppies stay together I’m all ears! But luckily, it wasn’t so bad…just a little disfigured.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t go the completely healthy route, but you can! Instead of bread you can do lettuce-wrapped burgers. And of course you don’t have to make onion rings, but I just couldn’t resist. It’s okay to splurge every now & then! A girls gotta eat.
They were so delicious, y’all. I topped mine off with some sriracha mustard. You can also add cheese if you’d like. Whatever your sweet heart desires! 🙂
