Grilled Turkey Burgers

Grilled TurkeyBurgers

These have got to be one of the best turkey burgers I have ever had. I’m not just saying that because I made them either. They are moist and juicy.  I love a burger with good char marks on them and these fit the bill perfectly. I have also cooked these on the stove top and they come out great that way also. Eat them with your favorite hamburger bun or make it a lettuce wrap. Be sure to make a few extra because they re-heat fabulous and they are great to have the next day. Ready for the recipe?!!

Did you ever see such a yummy burger?!  Seriously folks, you gotta try these. What is your favorite way to grill/prepare a burger? With summer upon us I am all about keeping the grill going outside and the kitchen cool inside. Enjoy!

Grilled Turkey Burgers


  • 1.5 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 jar roasted red bell peppers, chopped (I used Trader Joe's)
  • 1 cup feta cheese
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • scant sprinkling of red pepper flakes (or more to your taste)


  1. Bake or microwave the sweet potato just until tender, you don't want it to be mushy. Let it cool a bit until easy to handle.
  2. Break up the sweet potato into small pieces then add it with all the rest of the ingredients in large bowl.
  3. Mix everything together (I just get in there with my hands) until combined.
  4. Form into desired size patties.
  5. Grill for about 5 minutes each side.
