Getting tired of the same old hamburgers? Let us help you out of your rut with our scrumptious recipe for Herbed Turkey Burgers! Serve these turkey burgers on whole-grain buns with thick slices of tomato, lettuce, and any other traditional hamburger toppings to your liking.

1 pound ground turkey
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 egg white
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil

In a bowl, combine all ingredients, except oil. Stir until thoroughly combined, but don’t overwork. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and form each into a patty.

In a non-stick skillet over medium heat, warm oil. Cook burgers until well browned on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes. (Don’t press down on burgers as they cook or they’ll lose their juices.) To test for doneness, peek into the thickest part of the burgers with the tip of a knife (you should see no pink at the center).

If using a grill: Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Grill the patties, covered with the grill lid, over medium-high heat (350 degrees to 400 degrees) for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until center is no longer pink.
