Barbecue Turkey burgers & Baked Potatoes

Share it Please

Matt and I went to a friend's beach house for the weekend, and my darling friend Katie brought delicious burgers to cook up.  She was unsure how they would turn out, but they were SO juicy and full of flavor.  She said she used barbecue sauce and onion soup mix.  So I went home and looked for recipes including these ingredients, but for turkey burgers.  (Matt and I use ground turkey instead of beef because its healthier, and because Costco and a four-pack for $15) :]  After searching, I found this recipe online, and tweaked it a bit. 


  • 1 pound Fresh Ground Turkey
  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup  Barbecue Sauce
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • Olive oil for grill
  • 6 hamburger buns


Preheat grill for medium high heat. Combine ground turkey, onion, barbecue sauce, bread crumbs, onion soup, soy sauce,  salt and pepper. 

Then form into 6 patties.

Make sure to coat cold grill rack with olive oil because these burgers tend to stick. Cook patties 10-12 minutes, turning frequently for even cooking and browning. Make sure to throw the buns on the grill right before your patties are done.   

To go along with my turkey burgers, I made my mom's baked red potatoes.  

1/2 packet of onion soup mix
Italian seasoning
Olive oil
Garlic salt
10-12 red potatoes (serves 3-4)

I rinsed 10-12 red potatoes and cut them in 4-8 pieces depending on their size. Put them in a bowl and coat them with olive oil, added the onion soup mix, and coated with italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper. 

Throw them on a baking sheet, and cook for 30-45 min at 425 degrees.  About 15 minutes in, make sure to turn the potatoes so they cook evenly. They should be golden brown and crispy when they're done!

End result? 
 All-American goodness with healthier alternatives. (Turkey instead of beef, wheat buns instead of white, and baked red potatoes instead of french fries) Enjoy! :]
