For the Turkey Patties:
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • cup pork rind panko crumbs, or plain bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup grated onions
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper, or to taste
For Serving:
  • burger buns
  • cheese
  • lettuce
  • tomatoes
  • Sliced red onion
  • mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • ketchup etc.


  • In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, crumbs, onions, garlic, parsley, egg yolk, worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper; mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
  • Form mixture into four flat patties.
    If the mixture is too wet to the point of falling apart, add a little more crumbs, or until desired consistency. Keep in mind, though, that the burgers should be wet and soft, and will firm up in the fridge.
  • Transfer the turkey burgers to a large plate and then place them in the refrigerator for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove the burgers from the fridge.
  • Preheat the grill to high; about 425˚F to 450˚F.
  • Oil the grates.
  • Using your thumb, create an indent in the center of each turkey patty.
  • Transfer to the grill and cook for 6 minutes; flip over and continue to cook for 5 to 7 more minutes, or until internal temperature of the turkey burgers registers at 160˚F to 165˚F.
  • Remove from grill and let rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
