“The addition of shredded carrots is the secret ingredient to the most juicy moist turkey burgers so please don't omit them! these are delicious done on the grill I make these quite often and my family loves them and they are low fat too --- they may be broiled or pan-fried but they are much better if prepared on the grill or even an indoor grill would be great! This recipe makes approx 8 turkey burgers, depending on how large you make them, you might want to double or triple the amounts and freeze the patties --- Mrs. Dash seasoning may be replaced for the seasoned salt if you are on a low sodium diet --- plan ahead the patties must chill for 4-24 hours to blend flavors, the longer chilling time the better! --- for the best flavor use seasoned salt not white salt and if you are a garlic-lover then increase to 2 tablespoons, for my garlic-loving family I use about 6 garlic cloves, and my family loves lots of heat so I also add in 2 tablespoons of crushed chili flakes”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs ground turkey (preferably mixed white and dark meat)
  • 12 cup finely shredded carrot (DO NOT squeeze out any moisture in the carrots!)
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped (or use 1 small onion)
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh garlic (about 3 cloves, or use 1-2 teaspoons garlic powder)
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt (can reduce to 1-1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
  • 12 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 13-12 cup hickory-flavor barbecue sauce (can use more you may need to increase the breadcrumbs if increasing the BBQ sauce)
  • 12-1 teaspoon hot sauce (or to taste)


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey with all the ingredients; mix well to combine (if you find the mixture is too moist you can add in a small amount more of bread crumbs).
  2. Shape into patties, then place the patties on a plate and cover with plastic wrap; chill for 4-24 hours to blend flavors (24 hours is even better!).
  3. Place on the barbecue and grill until done (about 12-15 minutes) if made on a outdoor grill.
