Thai Turkey Burgers

The smell of that fired up grill makes my belly jump for joy with excitement. On the day I actually made these burgers it was raining.. so we took the grillin’ par-tay inside and fired them up on my griddle top, cooking just about 4-5 minutes on each side. Rain never stops me from cookin’ up a good burger!
