1. Gather the ingredients.
Gathering the ingredients for pan-fried turkey burgers is the first step in making this delicious meal. You will need ground turkey, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, olive oil, and hamburger buns.
Make sure to buy ground turkey that is fresh and not pre-seasoned. If you are using pre-seasoned ground turkey, you may not need to add as much garlic and onion powder.
Once you have all of the ingredients, measure out the appropriate amounts for your recipe and have them ready to go.
2. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients.
To make delicious pan-fried turkey burgers, start by gathering the necessary ingredients: ground turkey, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Once the ingredients are well-combined, form the mixture into four patties.
3. Form the mixture into four equal-sized patties.
Once the mixture is combined, form it into four equal-sized patties. To do this, divide the mixture into four equal parts and shape each part into a patty.
Make sure the patties are the same size and thickness so they cook evenly. Once the patties are formed, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of oil.
Place the patties in the skillet and cook for about 4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
To make pan-fried turkey burgers, begin by heating a large skillet over medium-high heat and adding the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the ground turkey and season with salt and pepper.
Cook the turkey for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the turkey is cooked through. Then, add the garlic, onion, and any other desired seasonings. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened.
5. Place the patties in the skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes per side.
Once the oil is hot, place the patties in the skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until the patties are cooked through. Flip the patties once during cooking to ensure even browning. Once the patties are cooked through, remove them from the skillet and let them rest for a few minutes.
6. Place the cooked patties on hamburger buns and serve.
Once the turkey patties have been cooked, the final step is to place them on hamburger buns and serve. Start by lightly toasting the hamburger buns in a skillet on medium heat.
Once the buns are lightly toasted, spread a layer of condiments, such as ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, or relish, on each side of the buns.
Place the cooked turkey patties on the buns and top with desired toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, or cheese. Finally, place the top of the buns on the patties and serve. Enjoy your delicious pan-fried turkey burgers!
