Tandoori Spice Turkey Burgers

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mr. Ladypit

Probably the best turkey buger I have ever eaten, great flavor in every bit. Served on whitewheat hamburger rolls with lettuce and tomato. Prep time does not include grill warm-up time.

Sorry to say, I found this fairly disappointing, mainly because I had high hopes for such a detailed and boldly spiced burger recipe. In the end, it was just different and okay. I made it exactly as written, using 85% lean ground turkey and some Penzeys Tandoori Seasoning. The grill time for me was quite a bit longer than 5 minutes per side, since I was using a countertop Cuisinart grill. I was surprised that even with all the spices, the resulting burger had a quite mild flavor - beats me how that happened. Well, at least I tried this on 100% whole wheat hamburger buns, which I'd never tried before - they helped.
