If you really want a good homemade turkey burger, you can’t simply treat the turkey like ground beef. Even lean cuts of ground beef cook up juicy and flavorful, but ground turkey needs a few sidekicks to make that a reality.
This recipe understands all that and adds a really smart step to make these the juiciest turkey burgers you’ll ever make at home. The secret is a breadcrumb-yogurt mixture — seasoned with both Worcestershire and soy sauce, and studded with sweet shallots — that gets gently folded into the meat. The way you cook these burgers is key, too. We’re using a two-step cooking process that guarantees a burger with a golden-crisp exterior and juicy center. Now, aren’t you intrigued?
