These Turkey Burger Recipes Are The First Step Toward Healthy Eating

You won't miss the beef for a second with these burgers.

There aren’t many turkey burgers that inspire the same excitement as a traditional beef burger. While burgers are normally celebrated for being juicy and ever so satisfying, the turkey alternative has the reputation of being dry, bland and all around disappointing.

It doesn’t have to be that way. With the right recipes on hand, you can make a turkey burger that’s even better than its calorie-laden counterpart. All the same flavor, with less fat and fewer calories -- just be sure to buy lean ground turkey.

We have just those recipes for you. These 15 turkey burgers are full of big taste. Using bold Thai flavors, buffalo sauce or melty cheese, the recipes below are anything but bland.
