I know turkey burgers can be dry, bland, and boring. But with the right blend of ingredients, you’ll have all the juice and flavor of a traditional burger — sans red meat.
A Note About the Recipe: The mince mixture works best if you combine 3/4 pounds lean ground turkey (turkey breast mince) with 1/4 pounds darker meat (turkey thigh mince).
If using cheese, I recommend adding it during the last minute of grilling so it fully melts.
