Turkey Burgers

Diane C.


I created these as an alternative to hamburgers. They are light and tangy. I love them on a whole wheat bun with a smear of Dijon mustard and and lettuce. Or topped with a slice of cranberry sauce.

I have broiled these but never grilled them. If you want to try grilling them, I recommend you chill them for at least an hour before grilling.
