This tasty recipe from Pam Saltzman, an organic chef & cooking teacher, takes the ‘blandness’ out of turkey burgers!

1 ½ pounds ground turkey (white or dark meat)
6 Tablespoons minced raw onion (cook the rest of the onion for a delicious burger topping)
1 ½ Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 ½ Tablespoons ketchup
1 ½ Tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1 ½ Tablespoons unrefined, cold-pressed olive oil + more for the griddle
¾ teaspoon fine grain sea salt
6 sprouted grain or whole wheat buns or lettuce leaves


  1. Heat a griddle to 400 degrees or an outdoor grill to medium heat.
  2. In medium bowl, mix the turkey with all the other ingredients.  This is a very moist mixture.
  3. Form into 6 patties, about 5-inches in diameter.
  4. Brush the griddle or grill with a small amount of olive oil.
  5. Carefully transfer the patty to the griddle and cook for 4-5 minutes.  Turn over and cook for another 4 minutes, or until cooked through.
