This is my quick and easy turkey burger recipe. When I need a last-minute lunch (or even dinner!) I make these turkey burgers, which are simple to prepare and come out tender and flavorful every time. These turkey burgers are better than hamburgers, in my opinion, since I'm not a big fan of hamburgers, but I could eat these turkey burgers once a week!
The water in the recipe makes the meat soft and slightly tricky to form, but the meat is tender and moist when they're grilled! My rating: 9/10
