This sour cream and chive turkey burger recipe is by far my favorite way to make turkey burgers. They’re the best burgers made with ground turkey, are flavorful and come together in a flash, truly a recipe staple to have on hand!
No joke, this turkey burger recipe is my favorite turkey burger recipe, it’s one that I’ve been making for years. Today I’m revamping an old post with new photos (the original post was published 4 years ago!!), but the recipe remains unchanged because it’s so good.
Move aside any bland turkey burger you’ve ever had, and make room for this absolutely delicious, flavorful and overall amazing sour cream and chive turkey burger. In this turkey burger, sour cream is used instead of eggs and is a nice healthy dinner idea. You can use lower fat or fat-free sour cream to make it even lower calorie.
You can load up the burgers with your favorite toppings. I’ve found that for these burgers the best toppings are lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, provolone cheese, and pickles.
I am one of those people that actually prefers ground turkey over ground beef. You will seldom see ground beef in my house. So when it comes to burgers, I love using ground turkey to make them. If you cook with ground turkey, or lean/extra lean ground turkey, you may know that it can tend to get a little dry sometimes. Because you’re using sour cream in these burgers, the burgers stay nice and juicy.
I wanted to leave some of the old photos just for you to see lol:
