Lager Turkey Burgers

Our family grills at least once a week 52 weeks a year.  I have been trying to make healthier choiceswhen it comes to grilling, but I don’t want to sacrifice flavor.  Turkey burgers are a great leanoption, but you have to have the right combination of flavors and you have togrill them right in order for the meal to be enjoyable.  I have finally come up with a turkey burgerthat the whole family loves!

Stir in panko.  Form into patties.  Imade 4 patties and they were huge.  Nexttime I think I will make 5.

Preheat your grill to medium high heat.  Place the patties on the grill.  I put them on the top rack of our grill.  Unlike beef, turkey must be fully cooked inorder to be safe to consume.  I used toalways over cook my turkey burgers for fear of them being under done.  I now use a meat thermometer and it is sohelpful.

Cook burgers until the temperature at the center is 160degrees.  Towards the end of cooking, add your buns to the grill to toast.  Add cheese of your choice and enjoy!
