Best 5 Turkey Burgers

Related To:

This summer, Food Network’s Grilling Central is packed with recipes for the entire family’s taste buds, boasting the best in burgers, dogs, chicken and more all season long. But with so many recipes, where do you start? Each Friday, FN Dish is giving you a roundup of stress-free summer favorites and this weekend, dinner will feature easy-to-prepare turkey burgers.

As juicy as beef patties, but leaner and milder in flavor, turkey burgers are an ideal canvas to showcase any number of flavors and textures. Before grilling, add to ground turkey a selection of sauces, fresh vegetables, herbs and spices to flavor the burger and ensure its moistness, and top with soft cheeses, crisp greens, mayonnaise, mustard and more to complete it. Check out Food Network’s top five turkey burger recipes, each with a different tasty twist and all go-to main dishes for your weekend cookout spread.
