This basic turkey burger recipe will get you started on your way to burger heaven...
Turkey burgers are often thought of as the healthier alternative to a regular beef burger, but rarely thought of as an equally delicious alternative...we here at Food Fanatic would like to change that!
This turkey burger recipe is intentionally basic to give you a delicious foundation for whatever toppings you crave, because if the burger itself isn't good, the toppings aren't going to save it from disappointment, no matter what they are.
Ground turkey can dry out - to prevent that, we used a mixture of dark meat and light meat and added a twist - shallots cooked quickly with soy sauce to add both a deeper flavor and some additional moisture. This finished turkey burger recipe is juicy and has a crave-worthy flavor even without all the delicious burger extras you can pile on top!
