Juicy Turkey Burgers

I have heard my fair share of complaints about turkey burgers (and ground turkey in general), how it’s dry, crumbly, no flavour, so on and so forth.  Well, I rarely have that issue, and I cook with turkey all. the. time.  Moreover, I find the least percentage of fat that I can (which traditionally sucks out even more flavour and moisture).

The key, really, is what you put into it and what you do with it.  And we all know I don’t make plain burgers.  Like…who does that?  😉

I have made many delicious turkey burgers in my day, but this recipe by Reel Flavor really takes the cake.  Um…mayo?  IN THE BURGER??  Yes!  Unhealthy, sure, but the 99% fat free turkey meat makes up for that, right?  This was really one of the moistest, juciest burgers I have had in a very long time.  I even re-heated the leftover one the next day, and it was still amazing!

For the grilled green beans (I used the side burner attached to our grill, plus our grill basket!), I mixed them with a bit of olive oil and some random spices from my pantry.  Delicious!
