Ranch Turkey Burgers

My friend Jenny makes the best turkey burgers.  They are packed with flavor and are just fabulous.  These are super easy to make and always come out great.  This week it was rainy and miserable outside, so rather than grilling them like we normally do, I cooked them in a nonstick skillet.  They were still excellent and about melted in your mouth.  My 5 year old ate his in about 2 minutes flat and before he even finished said, "I want another one!"  This time I sauteed some red onion and mushroom to put top with some melted provolone.  Was delicious!
You could do the same thing with beef if you prefer.


  • 1 pkg. ground turkey (I use 85/15)
  • 1 packet of hidden valley ranch dry dressing mix
  • handful of shredded cheddar cheese  

Place ingredients in large bowl and mix with your hands until well combined.  Form into 4 or 5 patties.  Cook  on grill or in skillet over med high heat.   If cooking in skillet, put a TBSP of oil in before beginning cooking.  Cook 6-8 minutes on each side.  Meanwhile saute onion and mushrooms in another skillet with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. When burgers are almost done, put on sauteed veggies and cheese and cover for 2 minutes to let cheese melt.  Serve on toasted buns with some sweet potato fries or cous-cous!  We made some cous-cous and put the leftover veggies up on top.  So good!  We also put some chipotle yogurt and mango salsa on it, which my husband and I both loved.  All those recipes can be food on my blog.
