Easy Turkey Patties

These easy turkey patties make the perfect protein addition to your lunch or meal-prep!

  • 1lb (450g) ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon chopped scallion
  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or crumbled bouillon cube)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili pepper flakes, optional
  • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger, optional

  1. To make the turkey patties: Combine all ingredients for the turkey patties (ground turkey, scallion, parsley, garlic, salt, cayenne, ginger, and chili flakes) in a medium-sized bowl and gently mix until everything is evenly combined. Do not overwork, so you’ll get a better texture.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter together in a skillet over medium-high heat and divide the turkey mixture into four equal parts. Flatten gently to form the turkey patties, then sear the turkey patties in the skillet for 5-8 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 160ºF (71ºC). Make sure to give a good sear to the turkey patties so they’re crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Serve the turkey patties with a dollop of chipotle aioli on the side, or squeeze between to slices of buns to make delicious turkey burgers.
