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.
