Celebrating 4th of July

Turkey BurgersWith 4th of July coming up this weekend, many people are going to invite their friends and family over for BBQ. Grilling is one of my favorite summer-time activities, so I wanted to reintroduce a healthier burger option: turkey burgers!

Turkey burgers can be a great option for a high-protein, low-fat cookout. But what about their flavor, which often gets a bad rap for being overly dry and bland? In my latest post on AOL, I go through a quick Turkey Burger 101 Guide.

Here’s what I cover:

  • Dark or Light? What turkey meat to buy?
  • The Moist Maker: How to deal with turkey’s low fat content?
  • Flavor Savor: How to boost turkey’s flavor?
  • Best Buns: What to look for when buying buns?

    To what temperature do you cook the turkey to. Otherwise I will be trying this out on the weekend

    • Hi Albert!

      Just place the turkey burgers on a pre heated grill. I would grilled 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how much meat you use or what you add in. Cut into one to be sure.

    I like to add thawed frozen spinach,garlic, italian herbs, and some feta cheese then top it with tzatziki for a Greek style turkey burger.
