  • 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.

    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.

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