Turkey Burger

You won’t miss the beef with these turkey burgers that are tender, flavorful and juicy…and easy to throw together.  They are a staple dinner in my household, especially during the summer months.

My family liked the idea of having a turkey burger with turkey bacon, but after trying that once we decided that if we are going to have bacon we’d rather have the real thing.  So we typically serve our turkey burgers with bacon, avocado slices, red bell pepper slices, lettuce and ketchup but you can use the condiments of your choice.
