Dilly Turkey Burgers

This recipe originally called for ground lamb, but my family prefers turkey instead. Dill is a great herb to enhance the flavor of turkey. —Andrea Ros, Moon Township, Pennsylvania

    Really moist and flavorful! Served with Dijon mustard instead of mayo to cut calories.

    Very good. I use ground turkey that is almost fat free as I think it has a better taste.
