  • 1 pound ground turkey (I used thigh, but feel free to use breast meat)
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives chopped
  • 1 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I used Italian flavored)
  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Serve with:

  • Hamburger buns
  • Butter leaf lettuce
  • Tomato sliced
  • Mayo to taste
  • Red onion sliced
  • ...or whatever your favorite toppings are.


  1. Oil and pre-heat grill to high heat. 
  2. Chop the chives and parsley, and prepare your toppings (tomato, onion, lettuce, etc.).
  3. In a medium to large bowl, add the ground turkey, chives, parsley, minced garlic, lemon juice, breadcrumbs, mayo, and salt & pepper. Using your hands, gently mix everything together, taking care to not over handle the mixture.
  4. Form burger patties one by one and place them on a sheet of wax paper. You should be able to make six small to average-size burger patties or four larger ones. Using your thumb, create a depression in the center of each patty so they cook evenly. Patties will be quite delicate. 
  5. Turn the grill down to medium-high heat. Cook the burger patties until their internal temperature is at least 165F. Cooking time really depends on your grill and the thickness of the patties. Mine took about 5 minutes/side (made 4 patties). 
  6. Once the burgers are cooked, you can toast the buns for about 20-30 seconds on each side if desired (we did this right on the grill after buttering them).
  7. Assemble burgers and enjoy!
