Years ago, turkey burgers where my goto for a healthy choice of protein. These days though I find myself eating and less meat turning more and more to vegan products. I picked up these Diestel Turkey Burgers on a whim while lazily browsing the aisles of Whole Foods – after a few years absence from my plate, would my heart grow fonder?

First up, you get four frozen patties to a container. Inside the main cardboard packaging you’ll find the four burgers shrink-wrapped together – interleaved with freezer paper to make them easy to pull apart. Once opened there’s no way to reseal the plastic, so you might want to transfer to a freezer safe ziplock bag or similar.

I was shocked by how much my palate had changed in the intervening years. I can’t say I was a huge fan of these turkey burgers, but that’s more than likely my own changing palate. What I can say is these burgers have a very clean flavor profile. There’s no filler and no greasy fattiness here – it’s quite plainly turkey meat before you.

Personally I found that turkey flavor a little too dominant and a little funky. Texturally the patties tend to dry out quickly from cooking – again this is a very plain speaking product – there’s clearly no added garbage to pad out the meat. Some will find this a huge plus I am sure.

Are Diestel Turkey Burgers any good?

If you’re looking for a quality turkey burger with as little added as possible, this is a fine product. These patties have a very clean and natural flavor profile. For others though, that austere and simple product make up might present as bland.

Here’s the final product fresh from the frying pan. As an aside, I tried one of these in the air fryer and wasn’t happy with the results, so I’d skip the oven too. They need the extra fat from the frying pan to really deliver the best results.

Here’s a few ways to use the turkey burgers. Obviously you can go burger crazy with these (see below) but I also find they make a perfect protein side to a salad, pictured here, a corn and black bean salad with pepita:
