I think this is a pretty good turkey burger. I add a little minced garlic. We serve them with jarred jalapenos on top along with the bbq sauce. I use 93% fat free ground turkey with all turkey burger recipes, you can go lower fat if you want, but they will be dry.
Barbecue Turkey Burgers

Burgers don't have to be made from beef to be delicious and satisfying. These turkey burgers are ultra-moist and tasty, making them a great alternative to traditional high-fat beef patties.
