“These turkey burgers are fast, easy, and healthy! They are great on the grill and also freeze well. As a college student who is always looking for healthy, fast meals, it doesn't get any better than this. The night before, I take one burger out of the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge overnight/while I have class the next day. Once I get home, I just throw it on my forman grill and dinner's ready in about 5 minutes! I serve on Arnold Sandwich Thins with sauteed onions.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Start by putting the ground turkey in a large bowl.
  2. Crack egg into the same bowl and scramble with a fork before mixing in the bread crumbs, garlic, onions, ground ginger, and soy sauce.
  3. Mix together with a fork until just combined. Don't over-mix.
  4. Form into 6 patties (I start with a 1/3 dry measuring cup and adjust the sizes from there).
  5. At this point the burgers are ready for the grill OR the freezer.
  6. TO GRILL:.
  7. Grill about 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through (no pink in the middle). Will take less time if using a George Forman Grill.
  8. Top with sauteed red onions if desired.
  9. Serve on toasted/grilled sandwich thins.
  10. TO FREEZE:.
  11. After forming patties, arrange burgers on a cookie sheet and freeze.
  12. Once solid, individually wrap the burgers in sandwich baggies.
  13. Place baggies in a larger zip lock freezer bag or an air tight container.
  14. Thaw before cooking.
