Grilled Turkey Burgers

These burgers provide a double whammy ~ they’re good for us and filled with good flavors!

Oftentimes, turkey burgers are bland; probably like eating particleboard.  The burgers need a little help ~ a good dose of Dijon mustard does just that, making them tasty and moist too, plus aids in not adhering to the grill.

Since ground turkey is a lean soft meat, it needs a binder; I used Panko breadcrumbs.  And, allowing the patties to set in the refrigerator for an hour or so before grilling, helps keep them intact on the grill also.   

These turkey burgers are a low-fat grilled treat!

Grilled Turkey Burgers 


2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Panko crumbs
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup red onion, chopped
3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper
1 pound ground turkey breast


In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients.
Form into 4 patties.
Refrigerate for 1 hour or so.
Grill burgers until done, about 12-14 minutes.
Serve on toasted buns.
