    Calling all you fantastic, throw-it-together chefs (Tammy, Jamy, Maria,....) how can I make a good turkey burger? FI and I have just recently started cooking at home so we're slowly learning. We bought some pre formed patties but I would like to know what I can marinate them in to make it taste yummy? (We tried Turkey Dogs the other day and they were bland as heck!)

      homemade turkey burgers are really easy but if you got the pre-formed patties then i recommend BBQ Sauce YUMMY!
      i wouldn't marinate them but slather with BBQ sauce and grill or broil them - and if you have some guac you can put that on the bun
      wait, what time is dinner? FI and i are hungry

        Oooh that does sound yummy. Unfortunately FI jumped the gun and just threw 'em all in Worcestershire sauce, lol. But, I would love to hear more ideas on this for the future!

        I'm a big fan of teryaki sauce. Also of roasted peppers.

        Turkey just doesn't have the flavor of beef or pork, so you do have to help it along.

        Also, a little taco seasoning works well, too.

            put the ground turkey in a bowl and mix with worchestire, cholula (spicy), soy sauce, ketchup, onion powder, garlic salt. form patties and cook!

            i use the same stuff + egg whites and breadcrumbs, and parsley and oregano to make meatloaf...i didn't like meatloaf until this recipe. also, for the meatloaf, i stick a piece of bread in the very bottom of the pan to soak up the juice. tastes phenomenal!

              I usually mix them with bbq sauce as Alyssa mentioned, they are so yummy...

              Did you end up making them yet? how were they?

                Just get ground turkey at the store instead of pre-formed patties. They are cheaper and will taste better when you add your own stuff.

                My suggestions:

                Diced onions and garlic, ground cumin, ground pepper, basil, one egg (beaten), dash of Worcestershire.

                Mix well w/ ground turkey and cook to desired temperature.

                  I do what LadyP does - mix the turkey with a package of Lipton Onion soup mix - a few crackers and a tablespoon of water - form into patties - and VOILA! Burgers! They are SO good - and no additional seasonings/sauces needed!
