The Best Turkey Burger Ever According to My Hubby

Recipe by BaybeShell
READY IN: 34mins


  • 1 12
    lbs ground turkey (could use ground beef)
  • 1
    (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning
  • 12
    cup four-cheese Mexican blend cheese
  • 14
    cup mayonnaise (divided)
  • 14
    cup chunky salsa (divided, I have also used black bean salsa with excellent results.)
  • 4 -6
    leaves lettuce
  • 4 -6
    slices tomatoes


  • Blend 3 tbsp mayo, 1 pkg taco seasoning, and meat. Divide into 4 for big burgers and 6 for smaller ones. Divide each burger in half then press each out to make 8 or 12 thin patties.
  • Mix shredded cheese and 2 tbsp salsa in a small bowl. Spoon mixture over half of the patties. Cover each with another patty and press the sides into a nice seal.
  • Grill (I use George Foreman and don't close the lid) about 7 minutes on each side.
  • While grilling, mix remaining mayo with remaining salsa. Spread on your buns. Add lettuce, tomato, and whatever extras you like. We usually don't add anything. Assemble your burger like usual.
