Yield: 4 burgers
-1 lb. ground turkey
-1/4 cup pesto
-1/4 cup bread crumbs
-1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
-1/4 teaspoon onion powder
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
Before you start grilling your Pesto Turkey Burgers, it is important to preheat the grill to medium-high heat. This will ensure that your burgers cook evenly and are not under or over cooked. To preheat the grill, turn the knobs to the medium-high setting and let the grill heat up for about 10 minutes.
Make sure to keep the lid closed while preheating to help the grill reach the desired temperature. Once the grill is hot, you can start cooking your Pesto Turkey Burgers.
2. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients.
Pesto Turkey Burgers are a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional beef burgers. To make them, start by combining 1 lb. of ground turkey in a medium bowl. Next, add 1/4 cup of pesto, 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mix all the ingredients together until they are thoroughly combined.
3. Form the mixture into 4 patties.
Next, form the mixture into four equal-sized patties. To do this, take a portion of the mixture and form it into a ball. Place the ball on a plate and press it down with your hands to flatten it into a patty. Repeat this process with the remaining mixture until you have four patties.
4. Place the patties on the preheated grill and cook for 5-7 minutes per side.
Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to combine. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Once the grill is hot, place the patties on the grill and cook for 5-7 minutes per side, or until the burgers are cooked through.
5. Toast 4 hamburger buns on the grill for 1-2 minutes.
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and place the patties on the grill. Grill the patties for about 4 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through. Finally, toast the hamburger buns on the grill for 1-2 minutes.
6. Place the burgers on the buns and top with your favorite condiments.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil. Place the patties in the skillet and cook for about five minutes on each side, or until the burgers are cooked through. Once the burgers are done, remove them from the skillet and place them on a plate. Toast the buns in the skillet for a few minutes until they are lightly browned. Place the burgers on the buns and top with your favorite condiments.
7. Serve and enjoy!
Serve the burgers on toasted buns with your favorite toppings. Add a generous spoonful of pesto to each burger and top with lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles. Enjoy the burgers with a side of your favorite chips, fries, or a salad. For an extra special touch, serve the burgers with a side of pesto mayonnaise or aioli. Enjoy!
