Teriyaki Turkey Burgers
Looking for easy dinner ideas? Check out my Teriyaki Turkey Burgers. This recipe is colorful with the right toppings and packed with flavor. I love turkey burgers, but in order for my family to eat them, they have to be packed with a whole lot of tastiness. So, I have become the self proclaimed queen of turkey burgers, taking on the challenge to find mixtures that my family will eat.
The true test that proves if the recipe is a keeper is when the leftovers disappear from the fridge and there are no complaints when I make it again (true story).
Over the years we have found quite a few combos that have made the cut with approval from my picky, opinionated dinner eating crew (phew). And, I don’t mean that in a bad way, their opinion counts and I am glad for the feedback; most of the time – haha.
After you’ve tried my Teriyaki Turkey burger Recipe, because the leftovers have disappeared and we have eaten this many times making it a keeper, try my Italian Turkey Burgers (recipe link below = another winner dinner).
- 1 pound ground turkey
- ½ cup whole wheat seasoned bread crumbs
- ½ cup low sodium teriyaki sauce
- ½ cup bell pepper, finely diced
- ¼ cup sweet onion, finely diced
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Place the ground turkey in a large glass bowl. Add the whole wheat seasoned bread crumbs, teriyaki sauce, diced bell peppers, diced sweet onion, onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper to the ground turkey. Mix everything together well.
Form the seasoned meat mixture into four large burger style patties. Cook the patties until they are fully cooked; 165 degrees.
Note: These burgers can be grilled, broiled or cooked on a stovetop.
Topping it Off? Top off your teriyaki burger with sautéed onions & bell peppers. As a condiment try wasabi sauce, yum yum sauce or mayo.
Put it On? Serve your teriyaki burger on your favorite bun. My favorite pick is a 100 calorie, whole grain round.
Plan ahead? Make the patties as directed above. Place them on a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper & freeze them for approximately 1 hour. Wrap the patties individually in parchment or waxed paper and freeze in a large Ziploc style freezer bag or other airtight container. Thaw and cooked as needed.
Side Dishes? Oh there are so many options; sugar snap peas, sweet corn, grilled asparagus, fresh salad, fruit….
