Turkey Burger Recipe!

Hi Fearless Family!

I recently tried a new recipe for Turkey Burgers, and I absolutely loved it! Immediately I started asking myself – where can I share the recipe? My first thought: The Fearless Blog!

The recipe below is easy to cook, quick from start to finish, and absolutely delicious. It can make a great burger substitute or stand on it’s own.

For a quick version of the recipe, see below!


  • 680 g (1.5 lbs) 93% lean ground turkey
  • 43 g (1 medium) shallot or red onion, diced into 1/4” pieces
  • 6 g (2 cloves) garlic, minced or pressed
  • 10 g fresh ginger, grated
  • 40 g soy sauce or tamari
  • 45 g sriracha
  • 20 g light mayo
  • Zest of 1/2 a lime


  1. Add all the ingredients into a large bowl and use your hands to mix everything together until the turkey mixture is evenly combined.
  2. On a large plate or baking sheet, portion the turkey into six 140 g patties. The mixture will be wet and soft, so simply plop the portioned mixture onto the plate and use your fingers to shape it into a 1-inch-thick patty. Place the raw burgers in the freezer, uncovered, for a few minutes while you heat up a frying pan.
  3. Heat a large cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat. When the pan is hot, remove the burgers from the freezer and use a spatula to gently slide them one at a time into the pan. If the burgers lose their shape as you transfer them to the pan, simply use your spatula to mold them back into shape. (Depending on the size of your skillet, you may need to do this in two batches. Keep the raw patties in the freezer while they wait to be cooked.)
  4. Let the burgers cook for 5 minutes—they should be dark brown but not burned underneath. Then carefully flip each burger and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the inside of the burger reaches 165 degrees or is no longer pink. Remove the burgers from the heat and enjoy.

If you decide to freeze the raw, portioned burger patties for later use, let the patties thaw overnight in the refrigerator before cooking.

Let me know if you try these!
