Place a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of vegetable oil, about 2 tablespoons.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey with the sour cream, scallions, salt and ground black pepper.
Using your hand, score the meat into four, then form four thin patties about half an inch thick out of each portion, adding them to the hot pan as you shape them. Cook until the patties are golden brown and cooked throughout, about 6 minutes per side. When finished cooking, remove the patties from the pan and wipe the pan clean with a paper towel.
