After a week of baking (and tasting) for my little one’s birthday party, I had to go back to my good old turkey burgers—my go-to “back-on-track” food!

Easy. Tasty. Healthy.

I make my turkey burgers in a pan, but you can of course do them on the grill too.

How do you make your turkey burgers? I’d love to hear from you!

Most people are familiar with Bone Suckin’ Sauce (great in meatloaf!), but don’t know that they also make this amazing seasoning.

It’s fantastic on any kind of poultry or meat. You can find it at Whole Foods and some specialty Barbecue Stores, or on Amazon. (Gotta love Amazon!)

I usually make two packages of burgers at a time because they make delicious leftovers!

I tried the Jennie-O seasoned burgers but I found them a bit oniony.

Trader Joe’s makes a good frozen turkey burger which you can season the same way and pop on the George Foreman Grill.


Don’t press down on the burgers or you’ll squeeze out all the juices.
