8 sesame seed or onion hamburger rolls

For The Turkey Burgers:

2 pounds ground turkey (93% lean)

1 1/22 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 eggs, beaten

2 heaping tablespoons grated onion with juice

Garlic Aioli:

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Fresh ground black pepper

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Caramelized Onions: (Or use our Slow Cooker Caramelized Onions Recipe for a large batch)

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 large onions, peeled and sliced thin

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Fresh ground black pepper


Start the caramelized onions by adding the butter and oil to a large skillet over medium low heat. Once the butter is melted add the onions and stir to coat in the butter and oil.

Season the onions with the salt and pepper and cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring often so that the onions don’t burn. The onions are done when they are golden brown and caramelized. Add the onions to a bowl and cover until ready to use.

While the onions are cooking you can make the aioli by adding all the ingredients to a small bowl and stirring to combine. Let the aioli sit at room temperature until you’re ready to add it to the turkey burgers.

Mix the ingredients together for the turkey burgers and divide into 6 large or 8 smaller patties. Spray a large skillet with non stick cooking pray and cook the turkey burgers over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side until the turkey is no longer pink inside.

Serve the burgers by adding a patty to each bun, topping with the garlic aioli and then with some caramelized onions.
