These burgers are reminiscent of Thanksgiving dinner, with lots of flavor and moist and juicy. The addition of olive oil adds fat in that prevents them from drying out. Other recipes I have seen use mayonnaise or an egg, but the olive oil seems to work well. Can be paired with a cranberry relish, and a potato bun for even more of that Thanksgiving flavor or your favorite hamburger toppings all year round.


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 yellow onion, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons fresh sage, chopped
  • 2 pounds ground turkey


Step 1

Mince garlic and onion as small as you can. I actually opt for using a large hole cheese grater for a finely minced onion and lots of onion flavor without the chunks.

Step 2

Chop the fresh herbs making sure to make them small enough so they the flavor is incorporated into each patty.

Step 3

Combine all ingredients in a bowl mixing thoroughly with your hands.

Step 4

Portion out patties by using a 1/3 cup measuring cup. Press out with your hand to form patty.

Step 5

Cook on grill or griddle, heated to 400 - 450 degrees. Cook patties for approximately 5 minutes each side.
