That's right, turkey burgers that are moist AND delicious! They do exist!
I actually love turkey burgers (but only homemade ones, not the frozen ones eww.) These delicious burgers came out so moist and tasty! If you're watching carbs, wrap them up in lettuce for a handheld dinner! I piled mine high with grilled veggies (peppers & onions) and cilantro... a little low fat sour cream and some salsa! Yum yum!
