Reader Tara Kulikov, of San Luis Obispo, California, gave us this recipe for a twist on summer burgers. Her addition of shredded zucchini makes them the juiciest turkey burgers we've tried.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a grill to medium (350° to 450°). Mix turkey, zucchini, mushrooms, salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard, and 1 tbsp. water in a medium bowl. Form into 6 patties.

Step 2

Brush patties and onion rings with oil. Grill both, turning once, until burgers are cooked through, about 8 minutes, and onion rings are starting to brown, about 3 minutes. In last few minutes, toast muffins on grill.

Step 3

Assemble burgers on muffins with lettuce, onion, and any additional toppings you like.

I usually don't love turkey burgers because they're pretty dry. The zucchini made this recipe stand out! I was skeptical because the mixture seemed like it wouldn't hold together, but they were great on my George Foreman grill. One of the best turkey burgers I've ever had. Not to mention love the idea of using an english muffin instead of a roll -- I had never thought of that before! Overall, I would absolutely make these again.

I like that this turkey burger has veggies added to it, but it was a little on the salty side for me next time, I'll only add 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. kosher salt.
