Homemade Turkey Burgers - So Simple and Yet So Good

In August of 2006 I gave you a great recipe for turkey burgers using just a couple ingredients to somehow produce the most delicious and simple burger.  Considering that was about eleven years ago... it's time to post it again.

If you are like me, you will look at this short list of ingredients want to embellish it and add 'more' of something or other.  You can of course - it's your kitchen - your food - your choice.  But you really don't have to.  It's good just like this!

Turkey Burgers

1 1/4 lb. good quality ground turkey
1/2 c bread crumbs
2 t hot sauce (like Frank's brand)
2 t fresh minced garlic
fresh cracked black pepper
dash of salt

Mix together with your hands and form into patties. Cook over medium heat in 2 T olive oil. Cook approximately 5 minutes, flip and continue cooking another 5 minutes until done. Serve on a bun with fresh lettuce, sliced tomatoes and ketchup. My kids always loved to put homemade Ranch dressing on theirs and now that my son is 25... he still does.
