For the last summer hurrah, we went to the farmers' market to get some tomatoes and fresh corn, and we made turkey burgers for dinner. I started with ground turkey thighs, which had enough fat to keep the burgers juicy, and seasoned with just salt and pepper. Goodbye, summer. It's been swell.
I still don't have grill, so I made the burgers on a griddle on my stovetop. I started with 2 pounds ground turkey and made 4 big and 2 small burgers (for the kids). I gently pressed them flat and made an indentation in the center, then sprinkled the meat with salt and pepper. Cooked for about 8 minutes over medium-high heat, then flipped and cooked for another 8 or so minutes. During the last couple of minutes I put some slices of Cheddar on top and covered the burgers with a skillet lid. I used a digital thermometer to make sure the insides had reached 165F, then served on buns with all the usual fis.
It's not too late to try one of Our Best Burgers Ever.
