Chicago mom’s favorite turkey burger recipe for families

Summer brings lots of BBQs and burgers! I love all kinds from the typical greasy cheeseburger, healthy veggie burger, and my favorite, a turkey burger! Here is my stand by turkey burger recipe that will satisfy any burger craving.

I prepare to have my kids get SUPER messy with this recipe! I let them do all the hard work by using their hands to mush and mix the ingredients together, and then form the perfect patties. It is quite entertaining to watch and a great pre-dinner activity!

Ingredients- serves 4

  • 1-½  lbs ground white turkey breast
  • ¼ cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • ½ red onion- diced
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese or American cheese
  • sea salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


1.) In a big bowl, mix together the meat, breadcrumbs, onion, and ketchup.

2.) Make 4 patties and season both sides with salt and pepper.

3.) Use an outdoor grill or grill pan indoors and cook both sides of the burger until cooked through.

4.) Top burger with cheese until it melts if desired and finish off with your favorite burger fixings such as avocado, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, etc.
