How To Make Pan-Seared Turkey Burgers

With their browned crusts, juiciness, and savory flavors, these turkey burgers are as good as their beef counterparts but not as heavy.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



  • lbs93% lean ground turkey
  • ½tspsalt
  • ½tspground black pepper
  • 2tspWorcestershire sauce
  • ½cupwhole milk ricotta cheese
  • ¼cupItalian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2tspdijon mustard
  • 1tbspvegetable oil,for cooking


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Place ground turkey in a medium-size bowl. Add salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, ricotta cheese, bread crumbs, and mustard and mix until well blended.

  3. Divide meat mixture into 4 equal portions. Lightly toss one portion from hand to hand to form a ball, then lightly flatten ball with fingertips into a 1-inch-thick patty. Repeat with remaining portions.

  4. Heat a large, heavy, ovenproof skillet over medium heat until very hot. Add oil to pan and swirl to coat bottom.

  5. Add burgers and cook over medium heat without moving burgers until bottom side of each is dark golden brown and crusted. Turn burgers over; continue to cook until bottom side is light brown but not yet crusted.

  6. Transfer pan to oven and continue cooking for about 7 to 8 minutes, or until burgers are completely cooked (an instant-read thermometer inserted from the side of the burger into the center should register 160 degrees F).

  7. Remove from pan and serve immediately.
