Diff’ Burgers

For something delicious, try turkey, pork, or lamb.

kitchen gear

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife (adult needed)
  • Measuring spoons
  • Skillet



  • 1 pound ground turkey, pork, or lamb
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 hamburger rolls, sliced in half and toasted, if you want
  • 4 tomato slices
  • 4 thin red onion slices
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • ketchup and mustard



  • Put the raw meat on the cutting board and divide into 4 balls of equal size.
  • Gently press down each ball to form a patty about 3/4-1 inch thick.
  • Using your thumb, make a half-inch dent about the size of a quarter in the middle of each side. (Handle the patties as little as possible, and wash hands after touching raw meat.)
  • Sprinkle both sides of the patties with salt (and pepper if you like).
  • Put a skillet on the stove and turn the heat to high. Wait two minutes for the pan to heat up, and then add the patties to the dry pan.
  • Cook until crusty brown on the outside, about 5 minutes, and then flip the patties and cook until crusty brown on the other side – and heated throughout – another 5 minutes.
  • Put the bottom half of each roll on a big plate, and top each with a burger. Top each burger with a tomato slice, onion slice, and a lettuce leaf. Add ketchup, mustard or other condiments, cheeses, or vegetables. Then cover with the tops of the rolls.
