By far the BEST turkey burger I have ever had. The inspiration was on an episode of Diners Drive-Inns and Dives. I simply turned their turkey sandwich into a burger.


Turkey breast 2 , cut into strips
Bacon slices 2
Kosher salt To Taste
Ground pepper To Taste
Cheddar cheese slice 2 ((medium))
Hamburger bun 1 Large
For marinade:
Cola 12 Ounce
Vegetable oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Soy sauce 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Minced garlic 2 Teaspoon
Crushed black pepper 2 Teaspoon
For layering:
Mayo 1 Tablespoon
Lettuce leaves 1
Tomato slice 2
Onion rings 3
Avocado slices 2
Thousand island dressing To Taste



In a large bowl, combine cola, vegetable oil, soy sauce, garlic, pepper and mix well. Add turkey breast to this marinade, cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat the grill.


Next day, cut the marinated breast into small cubes and using a grinder grind the meat.

Make patties as shown in the video, pop into refrigerator and allow it to chill.

Sprinkle kosher salt and pepper over patties and place on grill. Cook until the patty turns brown. Simultaneously grill bacon slices as well.

Place medium cheddar cheese slices over the cooked patty (on the grill) and cover with a small lid.

Toast the hamburger buns. Spread mayo on bottom half of bun. Top with lettuce leaf, tomato slices, turkey patty, grilled bacon slices, onion rings, avocado, thousand island dressing and cover with top bun.


Serve and enjoy!
