Yum! Used fresh oregano, rosemary, mint, basil, cilantro and parsley, as I had them.
These burgers were very tasty! I didn’t have (forgot to get) any fresh herbs, so I subbed dried for everything – including the garlic and onion. In addition, I forgot to add the parsley all together. Burgers were still tasty and juicy. Timing for cooking was spot on – this may be the first time I wasn’t nervous about whether the burgers were cooked all the way through. Best part for me – the tip to add a little salt to the cast iron skillet – first time EVER, my burgers didn’t stick and crumble while I tried to flip to the other side! Thank you!!
I usually don’t like turkey burgers. But this recipe change my mind. It was so delicious. Only thing I did different. I added onion powder because I don’t like raw or cooked onions.
This recipe was great! I didn’t have rosemary or thyme unfortunately but it still turned out. Does anyone know how many calories per burger?
Hi, Krystyna! We are so glad you liked the recipe. We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d recommend using an online nutritional calculator like this one. Thanks!
I am not a big fan of Turkey meat but this recipe is really good. If you are like me and find Turkey tasteless, try adding cevapcici or fajita spice, it will give nice taste to your burger.
Great idea Bobby, thank you!
Holy cow – these were delicious! I added crumbled feta to the mix and topped with a dollop of tomato relish. YUM!
This is very close to my recipe but try adding some ground chicken to the mix it helps to keep the burger moist and flavorful.
Thank you for posting this recipe! I started an elimination diet for inflammation and I found this recipe that works great! Best thing about it was ALL 4 of my children enjoyed this meal. Ages 8,7,5 & 2.5, and they wanted more!!! I have a hard time getting my baby to eat anything and this hamburger she wanted more of! I substituted the bread for alfalfa and I made an easy homemade guacamole to go on top of the patty. So, Guac on top of the patty, alfalfa wrap, and romaine wrapped around that. A protein burger. So good!! I will keep this for the main menu. Thank you.
Amazing, the kids gobbled them up( pun intended) and even my wife love them!
The best turkey burger!! Love all the herb flavors.
This was a Great burger!!! I added a little garlic powder and season salt to my ground turkey to ensure it was well seasoned. Excellent!!! Thank you for the recipe.
Outstanding turkey burger that isn’t dry & holds together without egg or breadcrumbs (which I can’t eat). I modified it a little- fresh basil instead of parsley, and I puréed the red onion into a kind of jam before mixing it in. Topped w avocado. Whole family loved it & it’s even paleo & AIP compliant.
Acp; I too love that there is no bread (filler) in these. We are having these for the first time this evening. Other than adding 1 T of oil to the mix, because we are using 93/7 ground turkey, I made the recipe exactly as written.
I have been making these burgers for years. It is always a family favorite and is often requested. This recipe is a major reason I maintain a beautiful herb garden.
This and your Spanish Baked Chicken are my secret weapons. Thank you for the ammunition!
Hi Norma, oh, I’m so glad you like them! Fresh herbs really make a difference, don’t they?
I have made this recipe four times it is a favorite, so yummy! We add cayenne pepper to the mayo and the result fantastic.
This turkey burger was amazing! I made 5 of them and had them for lunch or dinner for the past 5 days (and I’m not a fan of leftovers)! Great recipe.
I added cumin to the recipe, and served with red currant jelly and mayo- and homemade chips- delicious!!
This past weekend I was looking for a good burger recipe. If it happened to be turkey, all the better. We were heading to an out of town BBQ so I made these burgers 2 days a head of time… not sure if it was the fact the herbs were able to marinate the meat for a couple days, but these burger were SO good. I would highly recommend this recipe. DO IT… you wont regret it.
We made this recipe last night and I really liked it! It smelled absolutely delicious! We didn’t have any problems with the burgers staying together or sticking (well, they didn’t stick much on the grill).
However, the turkey meat was not very flavorful and a bit dry (as an until recently 12 year vegetarian, this doesn’t bother me so much). I rued that I didn’t get dark meat. My friend is on the paleo diet, so we ate it sans bun. We both thought it would have been better with a bun, loaded up with the stuff in the salad I made with it (arugula, spinach, apple, avocado, red onion, with a tiny bit of sweet soy sesame dressing [a mustard vinaigrette would have been wonderful]). Cheese and yams might have also made nice accompaniments.
In the end, I tore up the patty and ate it in the salad and it was very good. I thought the arugula in particular was a nice foil for the herby burgers. I’ll definitely make this again (extremely easy and I love the fresh ingredients) and have plans to use the herbs in a cream cheese dip I’m making next week.
I made this again last night and again enjoyed it. I’d forgotten how I served it the first time, and, coincidentally, again ate it sans bun with an arugula salad – this time a simple one with tomato, red onion, and balsamic vinegar.
I just made these burgers for my boyfriend and I for a Sunday football lunch and it was delicious! I made my own garlic and herb aioli to go along with it and it was even better. Thanks Elise!
Burgers were delicious. I added a sprinkle of curry powder and a few dashes of soy sauce. Thanks for your recipe.
