To prepare, be sure that you have all the necessary ingredients. Then begin heating up your cooking surface and coating it with olive oil. Then make sure your ground turkey is completely thawed before starting.
In a mixing bowl, combine your thawed ground turkey with your desired seasonings. Stir to combine.
Remove your balls of ground turkey and press them into patties. The balls you begin with should be about the size of a golf ball or ping pong ball.
Place your patties on your prepared cooking surface. Cook until one side is browned, then turn to the other side. Your patties are finished cooking when a meat thermometer reads 165°F for your patty’s internal temperature. Add your sliced cheese, and allow to warm until melted. Remove from heat.
Assemble your turkey burgers by adding your burger to your choice of buns. Add your favorite toppings and condiments. Serve and enjoy!
Be sure that the internal temperature reads 165°F, and no pink remains before eating these burgers. If you do not have a meat thermometer, you can insert a knife to the center and gently pull it open. If there is any hint of pink, the burgers must cook longer. Only enjoy after the burgers are fully cooked.
