  • 3 Place patties in skillet or on grill over medium-high heat. Cook 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 165°F. If desired, toast rolls. Place patties on bottom halves of rolls. Add desired toppings; cover with top halves of rolls.

Expert Tips

You can substitute ground chicken for the ground turkey.

I love the little bit of extra flavor that the toasted onion rolls give the finished burgers, but sandwich-size English muffins or sesame seed rolls are just as tasty.
