2. Mix the Ingredients 

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, breadcrumbs, chopped onion, chopped bell pepper, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to gently mix everything together until well combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can make the burgers tough.

3. Form the Patties

Divide the turkey mixture into four equal portions. Shape each portion into a patty about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. Make sure the patties are evenly shaped and compact, so they hold together well during cooking.

4. Preheat the Grill or Pan 

Preheat your grill or a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. If you're using a grill, make sure the grates are clean and lightly oiled to prevent sticking.

5. Cook the Burgers 

Place the turkey patties on the preheated grill or skillet. Cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until the burgers are cooked through and nicely browned on the outside. You can use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C).

6. Toast the Buns 

While the burgers are cooking, you can toast the hamburger buns if desired. Simply place them on the grill or in a toaster for a minute or two until lightly golden brown.

7. Assemble the Burgers 

Once the turkey burgers are cooked, remove them from the grill or skillet and let them rest for a minute. Then, place each burger on a toasted bun and add your desired toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, avocado, cheese, or any other favorites.
