How to make a delicious turkey burger
Ground Turkey: Ground turkey is an easy-to-cook with protein which takes on flavour easily making it the perfect base for these burgers.
Bread Crumbs: Help to bind this burger together.
Hot Sauce: Adding hot sauce to the ground turkey adds moisture to the burgers PLUS all of that spicy flavour! Plus, drizzle a bit more on the burger before serving.
Spices: Dried oregano, salt and garlic balance out all of the flavours.
Green Onions: Milder flavour and combines nicely with all the other spices.
And let’s just for a minute discuss the Dill Slaw on these turkey burgers!? A mixture of greek yogurt, lemon juice, dill, garlic & salt are combined with cabbage & carrots for the perfect cooling topping. You might just want to eat this by the fork-ful!
