The Best Turkey Burgers, Ever.

Until recently, I wasn't a huge fan of turkey.
Mostly because every time I've had it,
it has been bland and dry.
But since I've decided I wanted to start eating healthier,
I've been using turkey in the place of ground beef.
Not only is it healthier, but also cheaper.

Once I had my mind made up that I was going to start eating turkey more,
I had to find ways to make it appealing.
So I tried, and succeeded.

French Onion Turkey Burgers
[aka the most moist & delicious turkey burgers in the whole world]

1 lb of ground turkey
1 pkg french onion soup mix
1/4 cup of water

Mix all ingredients together in a medium size bowl [I like to use my hands and squeeze it all together to make sure that the seasoning gets thoroughly soaked into the meat]. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and allow to set in fridge for at least an hour. DON'T skip this step! This allows the meat to soak up the seasoning and the water, allowing for super moist yummy burgers. If you skip this, you are setting yourself up for burgers that will crumble apart. After all the flavors are married ;) form your patties. I like to use a George Foreman grill, but a skillet works fine, too. Cook to desired doneness. [Usually 6-7 minutes]. I like to put them on kaiser rolls topped with a little mayo, lettuce, & mozzarella cheese.

{Yields 4 burgers--recipe can be easily doubled}

Try them out and send me feedback!

I had never had burgers this way until I met Chris. Now I can't imagine eating them any other way.

Thanks for the great recipe - I'll have to try it out one night for dinner. I love ground turkey :) You could also try it in lasagna or baked ziti, in place of ground beef. Delish!
