    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    The addition of shredded carrots is the secret ingredient to the most juicy moist turkey burgers so please don't omit them! these are delicious done on the grill I make these quite often and my family loves them and they are low fat too --- they may be broiled or pan-fried but they are much better if prepared on the grill or even an indoor grill would be great! This recipe makes approx 8 turkey burgers, depending on how large you make them, you might want to double or triple the amounts and freeze the patties --- Mrs. Dash seasoning may be replaced for the seasoned salt if you are on a low sodium diet --- plan ahead the patties must chill for 4-24 hours to blend flavors, the longer chilling time the better! --- for the best flavor use seasoned salt not white salt and if you are a garlic-lover then increase to 2 tablespoons, for my garlic-loving family I use about 6 garlic cloves, and my family loves lots of heat so I also add in 2 tablespoons of crushed chili flakes

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 lbs ground turkey (preferably mixed white and dark meat)
    • 1/2 cup finely shredded carrot (DO NOT squeeze out any moisture in the carrots!)
    • 2 green onions, finely chopped (or use 1 small onion)
    • 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh garlic (about 3 cloves, or use 1-2 teaspoons garlic powder)
    • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt (can reduce to 1-1/2 teaspoons)
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
    • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
    • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
    • 1/3-1/2 cup hickory-flavor barbecue sauce (can use more you may need to increase the breadcrumbs if increasing the BBQ sauce)
    • 1/2-1 teaspoon hot sauce (or to taste)


    1. 1
      In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey with all the ingredients; mix well to combine (if you find the mixture is too moist you can add in a small amount more of bread crumbs).
    2. 2
      Shape into patties, then place the patties on a plate and cover with plastic wrap; chill for 4-24 hours to blend flavors (24 hours is even better!).
    3. 3
      Place on the barbecue and grill until done (about 12-15 minutes) if made on a outdoor grill.
    4. 4

      OMG! Kittencal, you've done it again. My husband said these were the best turkey burgers he's ever eaten. And I didn't even have time to let them rest. I just mixed them up and slapped them on the grill. I can't even imagine what they'd taste like if I let them chill. I used my food processor to mix the onion, garlic, carrots, barbeque sauce and hot sauce. Ended up adding a couple of Tbsps more bread crumbs to make it hang together better. Next time I'll make them ahead and use a previous reviewer's idea of individual wax paper squares to make it easier to transfer them to the grill. Thanks for another great recipe.

      easy to make but we didn't care for them, in the burgers defense we don't care for any turkey burgers and have been trying to find a recipe we like, we just don't like them :( I gave stars because they were easy, they cooked correctly, and they made a family sized portion, we even froze a few (which we gave away lol)! Beef it is!

      I made this exactly according to the instructions and they were very moist...almost too moist...kind of mushy. They have a unique flavor. The first 3 or 4 bites were good but I couldn't finish it. The unique flavor was just too strong for my taste.
