Easy, Flavorful Turkey Burgers

By Andrew Zimmern

Adding ricotta, tomato and basil to ground turkey makes the best, most flavorful turkey burger you’ve ever had.



Mix the ground turkey with tomato paste, ricotta, garlic and basil until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Gently form the meat into four patties.

Prepare a grill for medium-high direct cooking and lightly oil the grate. Cook the turkey burgers for about 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Place the turkey burgers on the buns, topping with tomato slices, ricotta and a few basil leaves. Serve immediately.
