Everything tastes better on the grill. That is the truth! These turkey burgers put most of the toppings inside the burger, allowing you plenty of room for other fun toppings and keeping the meat nice and moist. I love ground turkey because it tastes so good and is a great alternative to red meat, but I find it does dry out awfully quick on the grill so adding all of the ingredients gives it a helping hand on the hot grill.
You can skip the bun altogether to save some carbs for something better. Might I suggest some Mediterranean orzo salad?
