Grill, Broiling Pan, or Skillet
1large egglightly beaten
2/3cupdry bread crumbs(see notes for substitutions)
1tablespoonminced fresh parsley
1poundlean ground turkey
1packetHidden Valley Ranch Seasoning(see notes for substitutions)
In a small bowl combine the egg, bread crumbs, onion, parsley, and seasoning. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Mixture will be sticky, so wet your hands to shape the patties. This recipe makes 4 patties.
Place the patties in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before cooking. This allows the burgers to firm up and helps to keep them from falling apart during cooking.
Clean and grease the grill grates very well before preheating. Using a grill mat ensures that your patties won't fall apart during grilling. Grill over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side. The burgers are done when the internal temperature reads 165°.
Place the burgers on a broiling pan, about 4" from broiler. Broil for 5-6 minutes on each side. The burgers are done when the internal temperature reads 165°.
Preheat a heavy skillet (a cast iron skillet works great) over medium-high heat. Add burgers and let sit without moving until browned, about 5 minutes. Turn burger and let brown on the other side. The burgers are done when the internal temperature reads 165°.
Bread Crumbs: Use 2/3 cup of dried bread crumbs or 2 slices of fresh bread cut into 1/2" cubes. For gluten-free, use gluten-free bread. Ranch seasoning substitute: 2 Tablespoons Buttermilk Powder (optional), 1 Tablespoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon dried parsley, 1 teaspoon dried chives, 2 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon dried dill. Mix together.
