Garden Turkey Burgers

Helen Ottens


My family has been trying to eat a healther diet. I am a diabetic and had open heart surgery to repair my mitral valve a few years ago so we are using more chicken and turkey in our diet. We really loved the turkey burgers we got at a fast food restraunt but we felt we could do better at home. The problem was that when we tried to make them ourselves they turned out to be rather dry. This recipe is the result of alot of experimenting with different ingrediants until we found the right formula. Using bread crumbs and an egg wasn't enough to do what we wanted, so we started to add the vegetables to the mixture and that did the trick and we created a moist turkey burger that worked in a patty, as meatloaf or meatballs.
