Turkey burgers are a staple every few weeks in our home because they are easy, everyone likes them, and I can batch cook them on the grill.
Changing up flavors and ingredients in your staple meals can give it a whole new life.
That’s exactly what happened to my traditional turkey burgers. They got a glow up this week that I know you’re going to love! Give them a try and tag me if you love them @ginajonesrdn.
