Turkey Pan Burgers

Ever have one of those days where you want a homemade burger but you don’t have any propane in your propane tank resulting in an unusable grill? Yep. I had one of those days last week. We ran out of propane and haven’t made it to the store to get a refill. I had some ground turkey at home and I felt like having a burger for dinner. But I had to make it on the skillet. Skillet burgers aren’t always that great, in my opinion. To me, a burger needs to be grilled in order to be perfect. However, I threw together a recipe that made some awesome little turkey pan burgers (haha, get the pun there – panburgers instead of hamburgers) You probably have all of the necessary ingredients on hand to make these tasty little burgers. I will be making them again once we have propane so I can try them on the grill. I know they will taste magnificent grilled! I hope you enjoy this recipe. 


  • 1lb ground turkey
  • 1/3 C ground oats
  • 1/4 C finely chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp parmesean cheese
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil

1. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well 
2. Form the meat mixture into 4 patties
3. Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Cook the patties for about 5-6 minutes on each side, flipping often to prevent from burning.
Serve on burger buns or eat plain. We ate ours with rice and gravy. They were really good.

    These look great! I started adding Worcestershire sauce to my burgers last year and I love it. Makes all the difference in the world. Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday. Can’t wait to see what you share this week! Have a wonderful week.
