Juicy Grilled Turkey Burger

An incredibly moist and delicious grilled turkey burger blended with tarragon and ground mustard! Plus learn the super simple trick to keep your burgers incredibly moist and juicy!


  • 1 pound of lean ground turkey
  • 1.5 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 tbsp stone ground deli mustard
  • 23 tablespoons ice cold water
  • 2 tbsp dry onions*
  • caramelized onions
  • 4 brioche buns
  • arugula
  • mayonnaise (I used egg free and dairy free mayonnaise)
  • 8 slices of smoked Gouda
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking oil or pan spray


  1. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a bowl and mix just to combine.* Add salt and pepper to taste then fry up one tablespoon of ground meat in a small pan with a rad of oil. This is your taste test. Adjust seasoning as necessary.
  2. Pre-heat your grill, grill pan or my favorite cast iron pan to high.
  3. Oil your pan or grill to ensure the burger does not stick.
  4. While the grill or pan heats up make the patties with your hands. Make a small dimple with your thumb in the middle of the patty. This allows for it to keep its shape instals moist all throughout.
  5. Cook the patty for 4-5 minutes one one side then turn it over and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  6. When there is 2 minutes cooking time left, place the Gouda on top of the burger.
  7. In the meantime, toast the buns on the grill or in a toaster.
  8. Remove the burger. Add mayo, arugula and caramelized onions.
  9. Take a bite and enjoy!


1. I like the addition of the dry onions more so than regular onion because I find that the flavor is a little more concentrated and brings out the savory flavors in the burger
2. These are 4-5 ounce burgers. Feel free to make them bigger, however I like to load up all the toppings and minimize the meat.
3. Do not overtax the ground meat. Working it more than necessary can make the meat tougher.
