  • Yields: 4 servings


1 lb lean turkey, ground (93% lean) (We used Bowman & Landes )

¼ c cup breadcrumbs

3 Tbs shredded parmesan cheese

1 Tbs soy sauce

1 Tbs melted butter

½ tsp gelatin

¼ tsp back pepper

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp baking soda

PAM cooking spray


Light grill and allow to heat to 400-450⁰F.

Dissolve the baking soda in 1-2 tsp of water and add to ground turkey in a large bowl.

Add all other ingredients to the bowl, combine, and mix thoroughly while being careful not to over mix.

Divide the ground turkey mixture into 4 equal patties and coat with an even layer of PAM spray on both sides.

Let rest for a minute and take this time to brush off the grill grates.

Place patties on the grill.

Grill patties 4-5 minutes on each side, until the internal temperature reaches 160⁰F.

Once the patties are done, remove from the grill and allow to rest for a few minutes.

Assemble burgers using your bread/bun of choice, along with your favorite burger toppings: i.e., lettuce, tomato, onion, and avocado.


Equipment needed: instant-read thermometer; grill (or skillet)
