Grilled Turkey Burgers


Grilled Turkey Burgers

Most turkey burgers are dry and tasteless and leave you yearning for the real deal. Not these! I’ve added Italian turkey sausage – a trick often used with meatballs – which amps up the flavor and makes them incredibly juicy. The best part is that you can throw them together in a matter of minutes; only five ingredients and no chopping, slicing or dicing required.

What You’ll Need To Make Grilled Turkey Burgers

Step-by-Step Instructions

Remove the sausage meat from the casings. The best way is to use kitchen shears to cut through the casings and then peel them away from meat.

To grease the grill, lightly dip a wad of paper towels in vegetable oil and, using tongs, carefully rub over the grates several times until glossy and coated. Place the turkey burgers on the grill and cook for five minutes, covered, until nice grill marks form. Flip and continue to cook, covered, for 3-5 minutes more.
