Lean ground turkey is transformed into juicy, flavorful turkey burgers that will satisfy even the most steadfast beef burger lover. The Best Turkey Burger Recipe is a lighter way to indulge in classic American BBQ fare.
When ready to cook, preheat your outdoor or indoor grill or place a skillet over MEDIUM HEAT. Gently lift each turkey patty and spray both sides with non-stick cooking spray. Transfer to the grill (or skillet) and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, per side, or until the exterior of the burgers is nicely seared and they register an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
Discard the foil from the baking sheet and replace it with a clean sheet of foil for the cooked burgers.
Baste the tops of the burgers with additional barbecue sauce, if desired. Add cheese, cover the grill, and cook for just a minute or two until the cheese has melted.
