Abba's Ginger Turkey Burgers

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Abba Gimel

In my voyage to healthier eating, I have started using ground turkey instead of beef. In doing so... I had to make it tasty too. I do not use salt. For those that choose to season, well, that's on you.

This is a great "burger" patty. I did not add salt, but did add a little ground pepper to the mix. The sauce is great. I liked the ginger flavor in the meat and the sauce. Served with Recipe #258852. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.
