Turkey burgers are a terrific alternative if you’re trying to avoid red meat or just want something lighter during your backyard BBQ. To avoid being stuck in the same old hamburger rut that seems to occur every year, we always store ground turkey in our freezer throughout the summer. Although it is a very lean and healthful meat, when cooked properly, it can also be flavorful. The Stay At Home Chef is here to assist you in making the greatest, juiciest turkey burger ever, so do not be afraid!
How To Keep A Turkey Burger Juicy
The secret to keeping your burger juicy is to add a healthy fat to the meat. Use the olive oil as directed or a different healthy fat, such as avocado oil.
As an alternative, you might sauté half of an onion, cut it, and combine it with the meat. The onion will assist in keeping the burger juicy. If you don’t want to add more fat, this is a terrific alternative; nonetheless, we strongly advise using olive oil. It produces such a fantastic burger!
Can I Make The Best Ever Turkey Burger Into A Cheeseburger?
Yes, of course! The cheese can be simply added to the ground turkey. Just make sure the cheese is finely shredded and stir it in. To ensure that it is distributed evenly throughout the meat, you should mix it.
How Can You Tell When A Turkey Burger Is Done?
The interior temperature of ground turkey must reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Meat thermometers should be used to ensure accuracy.
This recipe can be prepared either outside on a grill or inside in a grill pan or large skillet. Increase the heat on an outside grill to around 450 degrees. To prevent your burger from sticking, make sure your grate is thoroughly greased. Be patient and wait a while before flipping your burger. Burgers will crumble if you flip them over too soon.
A Note From The Chef
Making the thumb impression in the center of the burger is the main secret to this dish. Burgers puff up in the middle as they cook, which will aid in producing an evenly cooked burger.
Storage & Reheating Instructions
Any leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator for up to five days in an airtight container. Reheat for a last minute or so in the microwave, 30 second intervals, or on the stovetop over medium-low heat.
