Ground turkey is one of the most flexible items at the market. It goes well with assertive flavors from many of the world’s spice combinations and can be made into meatballs, meatloaf, kebabs, or our personal favorite—burgers.

Unfortunately, turkey burgers have an unjustified reputation for being bland and insufferably dry. But not when properly handled and cooked. Here are some pointers for consistently serving juicy, delicious turkey burgers.

Look for meat with at least some fat in it when buying ground turkey meat. Breast meat is extremely lean, so lean that burger patties tend to come apart on the grill. You’ll want a mixture of white and dark meat (breasts and thighs or leg meat) with a meat-to-fat ratio of at least 90 to 10%. If you have a good relationship with your butcher, he or she may be willing to grind your turkey to your particular request.

Ground turkey burgers can be enhanced with tasty fats and/or moisture in a variety of ways. An egg, soaked bread, grated butter, a handful of grated cheese (either add to the meat mixture or stuff the burgers), condiments like soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce, shredded onion, or finely chopped mushrooms--which shed liquid while the burgers cook, are just a few examples. (Alternatively, sautéed mushrooms can be stuffed into the burgers.)

Before mixing the meat and other ingredients, make sure they're completely chilled. Handle the meat with care after rinsing your hands in cold water. If you over-handle the meat mixture, you'll end up with dense, packed burgers with no room for juices. Place the formed patties on a platter covered in plastic wrap, then cover with more plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes. (If you're short on time, pop the patties in the freezer for a few minutes.)

Preheat your grill to medium-high and prepare it for direct grilling. Clean the grill grate and coat it with oil.

Before grilling, lightly oil the patties with vegetable or olive oil. Use your preferred rub and season generously.

Grill the burgers for about 5 minutes per side, or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees on the inside. Important: Don't overcook the burgers.
