  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Gently mix 1 pound ground turkey with olive oil, salt, pepper, and onion powder.
  • Form four 1/2" thick patties. Press a divot into the center of each pattie.
  • Heat a large cast-iron griddle or pan on medium-high heat. Add a touch of olive oil to the pan and grill for 4 minutes per side or until the patties reach an internal temperature of 160f.
  • Let the patties rest for 5 minutes while tented with foil.
  • Serve with any toppings you like. Enjoy!


  • The calorie info does not include buns and toppings.
  • Olive oil is very important to keep the burgers moist.
  • Pressing a divot into the middle prevents the burger from becoming football-shaped, keeping them nice and flat.
  • For grilling, cook on medium-high heat (approximately 450-500f temp) uncovered grill.
  • For stovetop, a cast iron pan or griddle works well on medium to medium-high heat.
