***There's nothing like a big, juicy cheeseburger to satisfy your appetite. I've never really given ground turkey a chance until lately, and boy am I glad that I did! Ground turkey is so much healthier than ground beef, but I guess I've always just pictured turkey burgers as dry, bland and just not as appealing as beef. Well, these burgers put a rest to that myth!
I learned this technique for making a great burger from my Dad. He's always taken a packet of onion soup mix and added it to the ground beef, and it produces such juicy, delicious patties. I thought that it might be a good idea to try the same method with turkey meat. These burgers were FAR from dry...they were juicy and perfect! Plus, the onion mix adds such a great flavor to the meat. After topping with your favorite burger accompaniments, you'll be in love!
