Delicious Turkey Burgers

By Slimshoppin @slimshoppin

I made a batch of turkey burgers for my lunches this week that were amazing. I don’t often cook with ground turkey because no one in my family likes it but me, but then I thought – I’ll just make them for myself then!

I did a few things to make them more tasty. In a mini food processor I added fresh garlic, green onions, baby bell peppers, 1/2 a jalapeno and a handful of spinach and added that to the meat. The result was a super flavorful burger.

The other thing I did, since the ground turkey is kind of moist – is I added 1/4 cup of Kretschmer brand Wheat Germ and 1/4 cup ground flax seed. This helped bind the meat so it was easier to shape into patties.

A few times I made the burger into a salad. I chopped up the burger and added it a bed of greens and veggies and creamy Caesar salad dressing. So filling and yummy!
