  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • In a mixing bowl, gently knead together turkey, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Don't overwork the meat.
  • Form into patties about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Press your thumb down on the middle to give it a slight indent.
  • Heat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat (400-450 degrees F). Make sure the grate is well oiled so the meat doesn't stick.
  • Cook on the heated grill until burgers reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees, flipping one half-way through.
  • Let rest 5 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
