You will be amazed at how tender, juicy, and flavorful these turkey burgers are: grated cheddar cheese, zucchini, and minced onion mixed in help keep it moist. Don’t be tempted to press the burgers with a spatula when cooking. This common mistake actually robs the burgers of moistness by squeezing out the juices. Pile your burger high with easy fixings like lettuce and tomato, or use roasted onions and peppers, pickles and other leafy greens.
