These are soooo good and different grilled! I used freshly ground turkey breast rather than the ground turkey.
Tragically, Dog, watched me cook from beginning to end. He hunkered down and growled as I waved it in his face. As I walked away, he was mumbling incoherently about throwing himself in front of a car.
Great recipe! Instead of breadcrumbs, I substituted cooked rice. It makes the burger a little moister and I think it brings out the flavors a little more as well. Make sure the rice is cooled before you add.
