Recipe

To be honest I almost always opt for beef when making burgers or ordering burgers out. Although I like turkey burgers, sometimes I find they can get a bit dry or bland. My friend changed all that for me this past weekend when she served these delicious barbecue cheddar turkey burgers. Her secret is to add some of the barbecue sauce to the patty to keep everything nice and dry as well as make sure the meat is really well seasoned with Worcestershire, paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Then topped with some grilled onions and cheddar cheese and you have a really delicious meal.
