Our version of a turkey burger adds grilled onion for flavor and texture, tomato for richness and moisture, a double shot of umami with soy and Worcestershire for savoriness, and is served on a toasty English muffin. But don’t overcook. “Most people cook turkey way past the point of no return, says Chris Siversen, chef  and owner of Burg in Newark, NJ and Maritime Parc in Jersey City, NJ.

Ingredients

1 cup minced onion, grilled
1 1/2 lbs freshly ground turkey (preferably from thighs)
2 tbsp tomato paste or tomato puree
2 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
4 English Muffins Toasted

Directions

1
Mix grilled onion into ground turkey with the next three ingredients.
2
Form into patties 3/4-inch thick, indenting the centers.
3
Refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm them up. Cook until the middles are opaque, about 4 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
4
Place burgers between English muffin as burger bun.
5
Add traditional toppings of your choice (such as coleslaw, as pictured) and your favorite ketchup.
