Mini Turkey Burgers

Source: Everyday Food, June 2007


  • 2 slices white sandwich bread (about 1 ounce each)
  • 1 pound (93 percent lean) ground turkey
  • 2 ounces cheddar cheese, coarsely grated (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 small onion, coarsely grated
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 12 party-size rolls
  • Lettuce, sliced tomatoes, ketchup, and mustard, for serving (optional)


  1. In a food processor, pulse bread until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a medium bowl; add turkey, cheese, and onion. Season with salt and pepper, and mix gently just until combined. Form twelve 2-inch patties (about 3 tablespoons each).

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook patties until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Serve on rolls with lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, and mustard, if desired.

    Very good recipe! Made them for a crowd & let everyone chose their toppings; Chipotle Mayo, Pickles, Lettuce, Tomato, & a variety of Mustards. Thumbs up!

    These were easy and tasty! I made them when a friend came over for wine and cheese (I wanted a more substantial finger food option), and the leftovers also made great breakfast patties.

    Amazing and so easy!

    Excellent - flavorful. I made it exactly as recipe is listed, except into 6 burgers. I used Vermont cheddar (best cheddar) and result was delicious. Thanks Everyday Food - your kitchen is so helpful to my kitchen.

    If you want nutritional information so bad, send an email. Commenting here is not going to get you heard.

    contributors - use your common sense to figure out nutritional value, this is not rocket science.

  • JoyHej 7 Jun, 2009

    As good as this recipe sounds, I rarely make a recipe unless I know the nutritional information.

  • BostonWorkingMom 5 Jun, 2009

    looks easy to make. good for once a while BBQ party, not healthy for everyday meal

    Why is the nutrional valve NEVER included.........shame on Martha!!!!!!

  • Cari1975 18 Nov, 2008

    Yummy!!!! I've never made turkey burgers and was a little hesitant at first. These were super easy and super yummy. Very moist and good flavor. I have never liked onion burgers but these are great. I guess I've never had onion burgers that weren't made with a packet of Lipton onion soup mix...yuck! I served them with bacon and bbq sauce and some more cheddar on top...delicious:)

    Where can I find the nutritional information for this recipe?

  • jammiejulie 2 May, 2008

    Flavorful, easy and we all liked them--We will be making these again soon!

  • leslie farmer 20 Apr, 2008

    I actually had 93% lean ground beef and it was so good. These turn out moist and delicious! Shredding the onion is a great tip!

  • amandakotval 14 Apr, 2008

    Fabulous! We made this for company with kids and it was a big success. I doubled the recipe and cooked the burgers in the oven with the fries to cut down on steps. Totally yummy!

  • 1hotmama 7 Mar, 2008

    I love this recipe! It was very easy and tasty! I decided to use whole wheat bread to make the breadcrumbs. I made double use of the food processor and chopped the onions after I made the breadcrumbs. Everybody liked these little burgers!

  • qblivingeverday255 24 Feb, 2008

    I shredded the onion in the food processor, and used about a quarter, I then used season salt, pepper, and parsley.... also adding some shredded parmesan cheese. I then formed the patties as directed and used the remaining onion in a preheated skillet to add some extra flavor.

    I tried these out this evening and I must say they were very moist and tasty. Usually when I made turkey burgers before they were always very dry. It was very to make. Big Hit!
