May 6, 2024

As the temperatures rise and the days grow longer, it's time to dust off the grill and usher in the summer grilling season with gusto! Here at Nilson Homes in Davis and Weber County, Utah, we believe in celebrating the simple joys of family gatherings, good food, and outdoor fun. And what better way to do that than with a delicious turkey burger recipe that's sure to become a summertime favorite?


Ground turkey is the unsung hero of the grilling world. When mixed with simple yet flavorful ingredients, it transforms into moist, juicy burgers that will leave your taste buds singing. Here's our tried-and-true recipe for the ultimate turkey burgers:


  • 2 lbs ground turkey (85% – 93% lean)
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons Italian-style breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (or 2 teaspoons dried)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oil (canola, avocado, or vegetable), if pan-frying

Topping Suggestions:

  • Provolone cheese
  • Creamy coleslaw
  • BBQ sauce
  • Tomatoes


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, diced onions, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  2. Form the mixture into six 1/3-pound patties or eight 1/4-pound patties, ensuring they're slightly larger in circumference than your burger buns.
  3. If pan-frying, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil, then place the patties in the skillet. Cook until browned on one side, then flip and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  4. If grilling, preheat your grill to high heat. Cook the patties on both sides until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  5. Assemble your burgers on buns with your choice of toppings, such as provolone cheese, creamy coleslaw, BBQ sauce, and sliced tomatoes.

Pairing these mouthwatering turkey burgers with outdoor activities is the perfect recipe for a memorable summer day with your loved ones. Here are a few ideas to complement your grilling extravaganza:

Backyard BBQ Bash: Invite friends and family over for a backyard BBQ party complete with lawn games like cornhole, frisbee, or a friendly game of soccer.
