These classic Ground Turkey Burger’s are a family favorite and super simple to make. Not to mention super juicy, delicious and a secret ingredient for added nutrition.
I may be pretty proficient in the kitchen, but when things get really crazy and I need something quick and easy that everyone loves. During those weeks when our food supply drops to dangerously low levels because I’ve had a crazy few days, and I can’t make it to the supermarket, I get lucky with some ground turkey I’ve stowed away in the freezer. A great trick is keeping frozen meat ready to go when you’ve got a bare refrigerator and pantry. My go-to with ground turkey are these incredibly delicious and juicy turkey burgers!
I always try to keep a bunch of simple foods in the freezer like shrimp, vegetables, and meat, so at the very least we can quickly defrost something to have for dinner. The night I first unveiled this turkey burger recipe everyone’s eyes lit up! We all got to choose our favorite topping and enjoy burger night as a family. Naturally any time we have burgers we have to make some Air Fryer French Fries which everyone gobbles up really fast.
The secret ingredient in thee turkey burgers is oatmeal. It might sound weird, but oatmeal adds some extra nutrition to these burgers, which I love. I of course put out lots of toppings so everyone can jazz up their burgers as they please. While I like my mine with tons of pickles, Chloe prefers sauerkraut, Gemma desires a dip of ketchup, while hubbie and Kenya prefer a veggie burger these days. But however you enjoy them these burgers are a no brainer for last minute, healthy, weeknight meal!
Any day of the week these turkey burgers are a great choice! What’s your favorite type of burger?
