It has taken an incredibly long time, but my kids are FINALLY starting to like burgers. Lars has always been hesitant to eat a ton of meat, I’m guessing as a texture thing, and burgers were one of those things that he just never liked. As a result, whenever we grilled burgers, I would also make hot dogs or brats for the kids. This summer, though, the times that we have grilled burgers, both Lars and Soren have been into them! It started with these Bacon Ranch Turkey Burgers and who can blame them? I mean – bacon?! Ranch?! AND Cheese?! What is not to like?
These Bacon Ranch Turkey Burgers are so insanely easy to mix up and there is so little work for SO much flavor. There are only five simple ingredients and they come together super quick.
This recipe is so easy to make. To start, cook the bacon using your favorite method. I prefer baking my bacon to cut down on the greasy mess that comes with cooking it on the stovetop. Once the bacon is cooked, chop it into small pieces. In a bowl, add the turkey, chopped bacon, ranch seasoning, an egg, and breadcrumbs. Combine the whole mixture with a wooden spatula or your hands.
Form the mixture into four large patties. Next, preheat the grill to medium-high heat and be sure to grease the grill as well. Grill the turkey burgers for 4-5 minutes each side, placing a slice of cheese on top of each burger for the last couple of minutes, so it melts. Serve the turkey burgers on buns and enjoy!
You can serve these burgers with a variety of side dishes. I love making tater tots or fries in the air fryer to serve with burgers, or whipping up a pasta salad, like my Southwestern Pasta Salad or Macaroni Salad. A simple arugula salad or roasted potato salad would also be delicious!
