  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 slices of cheese
  • Lettuce, tomato, and condiments of your choice


  1. In a bowl, combine the ground turkey, Chinese five spice powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  2. Divide the turkey mixture into four equal portions and shape them into patties.
  3. Preheat a grill or a skillet over medium heat. If using a skillet, add a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Place the turkey patties on the grill or skillet and cook for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through and reach an internal temperature of 165°F.
  5. During the last few minutes of cooking, place a slice of cheese on top of each patty to allow it to melt.
  6. While the patties are cooking, lightly toast the hamburger buns on the grill or in a toaster.
  7. Once the patties are cooked and the cheese is melted, remove them from the heat.
  8. Assemble the burgers by placing a turkey patty on each bottom bun. Top with lettuce, tomato, and your favorite condiments. Place the top bun on the condiments and press gently to hold the burger together.
  9. Serve the five spice turkey cheeseburgers immediately and enjoy!
