“This recipe is from the Muscle and Fitness Total Nutrition guide. I'm usually wary of recipes from these kinds of sources, but there are several excellent ones in this one. This is hands down the best turkey burger recipe I have found. The only change I will make next time is to saute the onions first. I am sensitive to them raw. Try this recipe. You'll be glad you did.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If grilling, spray grill rack with cooking spray and fire it up.
  2. If pan-frying like me, spray pan, but wait to heat it until almost ready to cook the patties.
  3. Mix turkey, onion, vinegar, oregano, salt and black pepper in a bowl until combined; but try not to overwork the turkey, since too much handling will make it tough.
  4. Form mixture into four patties.
  5. Sear patties one minute per side, then turn down heat, or move to cooler part of grill.
  6. Cook 3-5 minutes per side, or until center isn't pink anymore.
  7. Top with roasted peppers and cheese, and keep on heat until cheese melts.
  8. Transfer to buns, add preferred condiments and enjoy.
