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?

  • Well, it's clearly turky burger is not real beef burger so you can't expect much though. Well, at least it's healthy. However, turkey patties can't change much since it's already patties so you only can make the buger tastier by putting more toppings like bacon, tomato slice and different kind of dressings you prefer. I'll suggest you to make patties yourself so you can grate onion, chop some green onion, garlic, red peppers or differnt kind of seasonings into the mix, it does make turkey bugers a lot juicer and tastier.

  • Grate some onion and garlic into the meat.

  • If your not salt restricted, This is how we make them. To 1lb lean ground turkey- add a package of onion soup mix , 1/4 cup egg substitute, dash of garlic powder, dash of soy sauce or worcestershire sauce. They are supper yummy and moist. Everybody eats them, even the very picky 5 year old.

  • I dont eat pig, so any bacon toppings or anything with pig in it at all is out of the question.

  • Hey! Go out and get a box of onion soup mix, and some gruyere or your fave cheese. Take out the thawed turkey patties dump them all into one bowl, as well as 1 pkg onion soup mix. Using your hands, mash the paties all back together so it mixes in the soup mix, and then re-form the patties, making them rounder this time (rounder+juicier) taking your cheese either: poke a hole into the patty with your pink and insert bits of the cheese and then seal the hole by rubbing the meat back together or start to cook the patties and after the first flip and they are good and brown on one side melt the cheese over the top.
    You can make a yummy spread for the top with mayo, stone ground mustard, diced carmelized onions, and a little cayenne and vinegar (whisk together, change to taste) spoon over your lettuce and tomato...
