Reviews for Grilled Turkey Burgers
"This turkey burger is the best burger I've ever eaten. Forget the traditional hamburger. This burger tops any restaurant style burger any day of the week."
"We have these burgers about once a month, always great reviews from everyone (even the kids and die hard beef lovers). I substitute out the Swiss for provolone, and husband makes a fantastic aioli sauce to go over them as well, adding another layer of flavor."
"My favorite ground turkey recipe."
"These are awesome! My family loves them. I use Italian style breadcrumbs for more flavor."
