How can i make my turkey burgers taste better?

I tried some turkey burgers once and loved them, so recently i bought some turkey patties (was that my first mistake?). And they were good. ...but not as good as a regular beef burger. Any tips?

  • Rachel Ray has a good recipe for Turkey burgers. You have to make them from scratch. the pre-packaged ones aren't that good.

    Mix in your seasoning, fresh cut chives, worsteshire and pan fry.

  • Onion soup mix or even Hidden Valley Ranch mix

  • We love turkey burgers. We prefer them to beef. We just season them really well, just like you would a beef burger. MY dh also has marinated them in beer.

  • Add shredded cheese and crumbled cooked turkey bacon to the ground turkey when you mix it. Add one egg, some bread crumbs(or corn muffin mix) and parsley, a SMIDGE of crushed red peppers, worchestershire, cinnamon, honey and paprika to the ground turkey. mix it with your hands, pack it into patties and fry em up! Guranteed to get your family happy and give you leverage to make hubby do the dishes! LOL

  • mama4christ361.. those sound great but does that somewhat offset the "healthier-ness" (lol) of eating turkey as opposed to beef?

  • yea. i dont eat pig, so no bacon or other pig products on my turkey burgers or anything else.

  • oh. and hubby cant do the dishes. ...he's deployed.

  • We don't buy the patties, we buy the ground turkey like you would with ground beef and shape our own patties.
    We add different seasonings, but garlic powder seems to taste really good in it and Mrs. Dash does, too.
    Try different seasonings for different tastes and flavors until you find some that really appeal to you.
