Moist & Tender Grilled Turkey Burgers

When it comes to burgers, I prefer turkey over beef, but the burgers have to be good ones. Unfortunately, because turkey is so lean, when made into burgers they can be quite dry unless you add in some other ingredients to add moisture. I started to make these turkey burgers last year when I had the whole family here for the holidays, and they are now my “go to” burgers. The vegetables add just enough moisture so that whether you grill or fry the burgers on the stovetop they always remain moist.

Why Healthy

  • Lean ground turkey gives this burger a much healthier nutrition profile than a traditional beef burger.
