Ground Turkey Burgers
Form ground turkey into two (4 ounce) or 1/4 pound balls, rolling in your hands and flatten to about a 4-inch diametre. Place on a piece of wax paper. Optional: Mix in 1 tablespoon of melted (and slightly cooled) butter into your ground turkey before making into patties to add a little extra moisture and flavour.
Season each patty with a pinch each of salt and pepper, as well as a pinch each of remaining spices.
Heat oil in a skillet (I used a 12-inch cast iron skillet) on medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add turkey patties seasoned side down.
Now, season other side with salt, pepper and remaining spices. Cook 4 to 5 minutes and then flip to continue cooking another 4 to 5 minutes or until cooked through and internal temperature is 165 degrees Fahrenheit.Note: The last 1 minute of cook time, sprinkle cheese on top of each turkey burger, add about 1 tablespoon of water to pan and cover to allow cheese to melt and burgers finish cooking.
Remove burgers from pan and place on buns (toasted, if you like) that have been spread with sriracha mayo. Garnish to taste. Enjoy!
Mix together mayo and sriracha until combined.
