A turkey burger gets a bad rap, but it can be good. Really good! With little secret ingredients, your turkey burger will be moist and flavorful like you have never tasted before. —Arisa Slutsky

What You'll Need
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2.5 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1.5 teaspoons anchovy paste
  • salt
  • ground pepper
  • canola oil
  • 4 sliced cheddar cheese or cheese of your choice
  • 4 hamburger bans
  • lettuce
  • avocado
  • ketchap
  • mustard
  1. Mix ground turkey, ketchup, soy sauce, anchovy paste, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Use salt and pepper generously. Combine well with a hand. Form into four patties with a slight dent in the center.
  2. In a 12-inch cast iron skillet or griddle, heat up canola oil to well coat the bottom over medium high heat. Once oil is hot, drop 1 teaspoon of ground turkey mixture and cook both sides. It will take only a minute or so. Taste and adjust seasoning, particularly salt and pepper, as necessary. You want the patties to taste flavorful without condiments.
  3. Once the seasoning of the ground turkey mixture is adjusted, cook the patties for three to four minutes. Turn the patties and place a slice of cheese on each patty. Place a lid and cook for another three minutes.
  4. Toast buns as desired. Top burgers with condiments as desired.
