Turkey Burgers

This may be the easiest recipe I’ve blogged about.  Ever.  It has three ingredients (a first for me, I’m sure!) and it really was quite delicious.  Many of you may already fix your burgers this way but this was new for me.  I’ve never used Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix before but I needed one packet for a taco soup recipe that I tried.  I had one extra packet that I wasn’t sure what to do with…besides make another pot of taco soup!

I had ground turkey and wanted to initially make these turkey burgers instead but I was tired, and I wanted something quick and did I mention that I was tired?  So I threw this together and kept my fingers crossed that it would turn out.  I topped the burgers off with melted cheese, grilled onions and baby spinach leaves (something green!) and baked oven fries as a side.  Easiest dinner ever.

Turkey Burgers

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Preheat your indoor grill pan (we love the Bobby Flay cast iron grill pan we got for Christmas!) on medium high heat.  Brush the grill pan liberally with olive oil.

Combine turkey, ranch dressing mix and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl until just mixed.  Do not over mix.  Form into four to six patties (I made six patties since there were two kids to feed).    Cook on grill for 5 minutes per side until meat is cooked through.  Remember you want to cook poultry all the way through.  Serve on toasted wheat hamburger buns and desired burger toppings.

    Susy, this is awesome! I use ground turkey more often that beef so I am always looking for more ways to use it. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Wow. So easy. And I love turkey burgers. Add to these that my kids will eat anything (and I mean ANYTHING) with ranch in the name. 😉 It’s a must try. Thanks for sharing, Susy!
