Turkey burgers get a bad wrap – they can be dry and tasteless. But using a packet of dry onion soup as seasoning plus cheddar cubes mixed in brings out the best in these burgers!
Did you know: Ground chicken sounds healthier than ground beef, but in reality it can have more saturated fat. This is because the skin is also ground in, boosting the calories and fat content. Go for lean ground beef or lean ground turkey for healthy options!
