These grilled turkey burgers are seasoned up with a simple blend of spices and deliver so much juicy flavor.


  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • dash Sriracha
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Turkey Burger Toppings

  • Burger buns (I like brioche or sesame buns)
  • Sliced avocado or guacamole
  • Crispy bacon
  • Sharp cheddar or American cheese
  • Fried egg
  • Sliced red onion
  • Sliced Jalapeño 
  • Sliced tomato
  • Whole leaf lettuce
  • Dill pickles
  • Ketchup/mustard/spicy mayo


  1. Mix ground turkey and all seasonings together in a bowl. Use your hands to form 4 uniform patties, roughly 1/2-3/4 inches thick and 4-5 inches in diameter.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat. Clean the grates well and cook burgers for about 5-6 minutes per side, flipping once. If adding cheese, top in the last minute of cooking. Let burgers rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  3. Assemble burgers as desired and serve with my baked sweet potato fries.


Make sure you get 93% lean ground turkey. 99% lean turkey is a little too lean for my taste and lacks on flavor.
