Can you make turkey burgers ahead of time?

You can make the burgers up to 24 hours ahead of time and keep them covered in the fridge til you are ready to cook. They are best enjoyed as soon as they are cooked, but leftovers will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge and can be reheated in the oven at 360F.

What’s the best cheese to stuff burgers with?

I love to stuff these burgers with cheddar cheese, but all kinds of cheeses will work well. Blue cheese or goat cheese would add a nice tang, or use a mozzarella for a milder flavor.

Can you make burgers with other proteins?

Of course! These burgers can be made with ground chicken, pork, beef or bison.

What toppings can you add to turkey burgers?

I like to serve these Juicy Lucy turkey burgers in brioche buns with tomato and lettuce. Pickles and red onions work great, or add some sliced jalapenos for a spicy kick. Add some ketchup, mayo and mustard as liberally as you please.

  • Don’t over mix the ground turkey with the seasonings. They should be just combined as over mixing can make the burgers tough.
  • Cook the burgers on a preheated grill or skillet. Don’t add them to a cold surface or they won’t cook through evenly.
  • These turkey burgers are made without breadcrumbs and are gluten-free.

This is one tasty burger recipe! So quick and easy to make from scratch, this is a true family favorite.
