Herbed Turkey Burgers

The perfect summer night for me is eating a wonderful meal outside and relaxing with a glass of wine – with my husband and dog, of course!   Summer food does not taste any better than this herbed turkey burger served with grilled corn on the cob and some homemade potato chips!   As I’ve mentioned before – my herb garden is overflowing – and I am doing my best to make use of the availability of fresh herbs while I have the chance.  (BTW - this herb garden is making me think about getting an aerogarden – does anyone have one and recommend it?) 
This meal is also great for an easy weeknight meal – since once you make the burgers you can easily freeze them to grill when ever you want!  Enjoy!


(makes 8 burgers)

  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh sage
  • 2 tsp. fresh thyme leaves


1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and sauté about 3 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook about 2 minutes longer, until the onion is tender.  Remove from the heat and transfer to a large mixing bowl; let cool.

2. Once the onion mixture has cooled, add the ground turkey, salt, pepper and herbs to the bowl.  Mix well so everything is evenly blended. 

3. Mix in the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil.  Form the mixture into 8 equal sized patties. 

4. Cook immediately on a pre-heated grill or freeze for later use.  Serve with desired condiments.
