I know that turkey burgers do tend to be dry since they are so lean. After thinking about this problem, I decided to use mushrooms & feta in the burgers to combat them drying out from the grilling process. They turned out VERY flavorful & moist, I think I have found my new secret weapon when it comes to turkey burgers!
Turkey Burgers (Oven Fries recipe to follow)

- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 1 cup of crumbled feta cheese
- 4 large button mushroom caps, diced fairly small
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs
- 1 shallot, finely minced
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well with your fingers, like you would for a meatloaf.
- Shape into 4 patties, stacking on wax or parchment paper, cover with plastic wrap and put in fridge for an hour to set.
- Heat a grill or grill pan (which I used) sprayed with non-stick spray to medium-high heat.
- Add burgers and let set for 8-10 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the burgers.
- When cooked through, serve with your choice of toppings on a toasted bun.
