I love a good, juicy hamburger – but sometimes it’s nice to switch it up! Ground turkey is a perfect alternative and tastes delicious as well!
These BBQ Ground Turkey Burgers are one of our favorites – even the kids love it them.
How do you keep ground turkey burgers from falling apart?
Turkey burgers need some type of ingredient to bind the burgers together and keep them from falling apart. I recommend using breadcrumbs and an egg – the breadcrumbs will absorb the moisture and the egg will act like a glue to hold the burgers together while you grill them.
For this recipe, we do not use an egg, but instead use BBQ sauce and mustard to act as the glue to hold the burger together.
Another idea is to cook these burgers on a flat top grill instead of a traditional open-flame grill.
How to keep your turkey burger juicy
When it comes to a juicy burger, the secret is in the fat content. It’s easy with ground beef (there are lots of options of ground beef that have a higher percentage of fat), but ground turkey is such a lean cut of meat that it dries out so easily.
